Galaxy S9 May Feature Intelligent Scan Tech
New reports suggest that Samsung’s upcoming flagships, the Galaxy S9 and S9+, may feature intelligent scan technology.

(CCM) — Information about possible Galaxy S9 and S9+ features is steadily leaking ahead of the devices’ official launch at MWC in Barcelona at the end of next month. According to recent reports, the upcoming line of Galaxy smartphones may include a new feature dubbed "intelligent scan."

The intelligent scan feature combines iris and facial recognition technology to unlock phones in low-light surroundings. The same feature can also be found in an APK teardown of the Settings app on Galaxy Note 8 devices running Oreo beta. The intelligent scan feature is expected to enhance security and accuracy on Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones. This same feature could also be retroactively rolled out to Galaxy S8, S8+, and Note 8 devices, all of which are already equipped with both facial recognition and iris scanner technologies.

Samsung's forthcoming Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ smartphones are rumored to come with Snapdragon 845 processors, up to 6 GB of RAM, 512 GB of internal storage, and Android 8.1 Oreo.
