Samsung Galaxy S9 to Come with New Intelligent Scan Feature
South Korean smartphone manufacturer Samsung is all geared up for the launch of its S9 flagship series next month. We previously reported that the Galaxy S9 would come with a new, improved Iris Scanner that works in new visibility and reduces the response time. According to a new report, the smartphone will come with a new feature called “Intelligent Scan,” which isn’t currently present in any Samsung model. The source mentioned it to be present in Samsung’s settings app.
The company has not announced or even mentioned this “Intelligent Scanner” feature, which could mean many things. The new feature is described in a YouTube video. Samsung explains it as a combination of Iris scanner and Face recognition Technology, which could enhance the performance in low-lit conditions.
From the video, the feature will likely combine the limited information provided by the Iris Scanner and the front camera to detect whoever is trying to access the device. Also, it can help when the eyes are not directly pointed at the smartphone or are half closed. Or it may include both the system and we can choose over whatever we want for our security. The Iris scanner may work better in darkness, but the front camera works better in another situation.
This feature will be included in the Galaxy S9 and possibly for the Galaxy S9 Plus. Since there is no need for external hardware other than the Iris scanner, the feature may also be included in future updates of the previous flagship Galaxy S8 and Note 8. The Galaxy S9 series is scheduled to launch on February 25, when the company will be providing information about this new feature.
