Galaxy S10

The number of rumors concerning the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11 is going to increase in the upcoming months. We have heard that the final design of this device is ready. We have also heard that we may get more ToF sensors in each unit, to improve facial recognition, and this last rumor is getting a follow-up rumor.

iPhone X came to change the way we used to see smartphones. Everybody wanted in-display fingerprint sensors, but Apple decided that they were going to bet on facial recognition to unlock their devices. A year after that, many Android OEMs followed the same path. The main difference is that we didn’t lose the fingerprint sensors, and we received facial recognition, but without the 3D sensing capabilities of Face ID. In time we started seeing 3D facial recognition in devices from Huawei and Xiaomi, and many others followed. The last OEMs to include that function are Google with the Pixel 4, and now it seems that we will also get that feature in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S11. This information comes from XDA-Developer’s Max Weinbach. He posted evidence that Samsung is working on a Face Service app on the UX_Picasso, which means that they want to improve their facial recognition features. We also know that we will get several variants of the Samsung Galaxy S11, or at least two.
