Samsung Galaxy S9 to feature improved face recognition scanner

Samsung's support document doesn't offer any insight into what the SM-G888 family of devices is supposed to be, but that model number has been associated with the Galaxy X many times in the past.

While no specifications are given for the Galaxy X on the support page, the holding page is a strong indicator that the launch is weeks, rather than months, away. Though Samsung beat Apple to the punch on facial recognition in 2017, delivering it on the Galaxy S8 last April, its implementation was quickly forgotten about following reports that it was easily duped by a hi-res photo. For starters, the rumored Galaxy X will supposedly feature foldability, which is due to a series of hinges. Shortly after we found new sketches of the Galaxy X foldable phone.

Not a lot of USA consumers might know this, but Samsung also has its own smartphone offering with the letter "X" on it.

The South Korean tech giant said users can apply for the program until Monday.

Samsung Galaxy S9 leaks have also indicated the phone will be powered by the Exynos 9810 processor from the company, although the United States variant will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. It's the Galaxy X and it has been the subject of rumors for years.

With the robust performance of the iPhone X, expectations are high for Samsung's 2018 flagship. Experts believe CES 2018 looks like the date to save ahead of the yet unconfirmed phone launch.

A phone that is essentially pure screen is something that many people apparently want, and it might not be entirely foreign to Samsung's approach to the Galaxy X. In fact, some fan renders show it as basically a panel that you can fold, with no front buttons or sensors to be seen.
