The Galaxy S10 phones feature an amazing Infinity-O edge-to-edge display design, with a circular or pillar-shaped camera hole near one of the corners. The camera clip is a nice alternative to the infamous hack like everyone, but Samsung, copied this year, but it does something in line with Face ID seemingly impossible.
Samsung, according to a report, would not bring iris scanning to the Galaxy S10 series. With all that in mind, I wondered if Samsung's premium Galaxy S10, Plus and 5G models would contain some kind of Face ID-like support, given that they would like two holes on the screens, mostly for selfie cams. We still do not have a definite answer, but a discovery suggests that Samsung has not given up face recognition technology.
Dutch tech blog LetsGoDigital discovered new Samsung branded trademarks for various terms that have the word "vision" in them, including private vision, discovering vision and dynamic vision. If I'd guess, I would say that these marketing words should describe face recognition features for upcoming smartphones like the Galaxy S1
The same blog discovered some of the new Infinity display-related market conditions that Samsung introduced at SDC 18 in early November, well before Samsung mentioned them on stage – Infinity-O was one of them.
The new trademark applications were posted on the site of Korean intellectual property earlier this week, only some A few days after Samsung applied for them. The documentation suggests that these Vision trademarks refer to sensors that could detect motion and could be used for face recognition purposes.
The same blog shows that Samsung Dynamic Vision sensor is not new. It was something that first came up a few years ago – a sensor that could record video at a speed of 2000 frames per second (fps). There is something that can be used to increase the face recognition security on the phone.
That said, we have no evidence that any of these Vision products will make it into the Galaxy S10 this year. But the time of the application seems to suggest that Samsung will soon introduce these sensors. With CES and MWC on its way in early 2019, we have at least a few Samsung press valves to review as well as the official Galaxy S10 announcement, which will take place in February.
