Then you have your fingerprint sensor, which because of the new large screen design of the Galaxy S8 has been demoted to the back of the smartphone. One of them is Samsung's new facial recognition where the password to unlock your device is your face. As you can easily see in the picture above, the Galaxy S8 isn't able to outperform the 2015 iPhone 6s, let alone last year's iPhone 7 Plus. The second surprise though, was that Samsung had teamed up with Microsoft to sell a "Microsoft Edition" Galaxy S8.
A video has surfaced online that shows a person placing a photo in front of the Galaxy S8. However, users should take note that the stocks of the new smartphones are limited and will be on a first come, first served basis. Nonetheless, it has been said that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will go as high as 300 megabits per second, CNET reported.
The video above from iDeviceHelp will show you exactly how the spoof is done on the Galaxy S8.

Indeed, in a statement given to ArsTechnica, Samsung explained that facial recognition can not be used to authenticate mobile payments or to access the device's Secure Folder, both of which require the use of the phone's other biometric features. Conceivably, a hacker could simply hold a photo of the device's owner in front of the camera and gain access to all the data stored inside.
But if the new report is accurate about its Q3 release, it might not be long before more concentrated information about the Samsung Galaxy X 2017 comes about.
Both of Samsung devices have octa-core CPUs, and the same Exynos 7870 Octa chipset, so, you don't have to worry about choosing the best performance between the two.
