Samsung Galaxy S8’s Iris Scanner Bypassed By Hacker Group Using Only Digital Camera and Contact Lens
Even before the Samsung Galaxy S8 was officially launched, hackers found a way to bypass its facial recognition system. Now, hackers of the Chaos Computer Club in Germany have managed to fool the iris recognition system on Samsung’s latest flagship as well.
If you’ve been on the fence when it comes to buying a Samsung Galaxy S8, and you happen to be a T-Mobile customer, Samsung may have a new deal that could push you over the edge.
“You get what you pay for” is one of the oldest adages in the English language. Either in the context of something ultra-cheap, or – here – of something super-expensive, with the new Samsung Galaxy S8+ coming in at £779 inc VAT in the UK and similar top end prices across the world. Yet, after spending a week with the S8+ I am forced to admit that you do get an awful lot for your money. Whether you enjoy using all the tech depends, as usual, on how much you like Samsung – its sometimes quirky designs, its software, its ecosystem – and, in this case, how much you’re prepared to experiment with new ways of unlocking your phone.
Samsung might not have hyped the 12MP camera of the Galaxy S8 much, but that does not take away the fact that the handset still has an excellent shooter. Samsung has further complemented the excellent camera setup on the handset with its redesigned camera app that is feature-rich and easy to use.
More than a month after their international release, Samsung has launched the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in China. To make up for the delay, Samsung will be selling a premium variant of the Galaxy S8+ in China with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage.
DxOMark has put the Samsung Galaxy S8’s 12MP rear shooter through its comparison and given it a score of 88. This is just a point below the Google Pixel and similar to the Galaxy S7, HTC 10, and the Xperia X Performance.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 might be filled to the brim with top-notch specs and internals, but it still comes with fast charging support that Samsung had first debuted with the Galaxy S6 in 2015. While fast charging does help in charging the Galaxy S8 quickly, it’s no match for Quick Charge 3.0 or OnePlus Dash Charge.
For those of you out there under T-Mobile‘s magenta umbrella, and who haven’t yet bought a Samsung Galaxy S8, the wait may pay off in a new promotion.
