No, the Galaxy Note 8’s face recognition can’t be fooled by a photo

Josh L., writing for SamMobile;

Last week, a video started making the rounds online claiming that the Galaxy Note 8’s face recognition feature can be fooled by a photograph—and guess what? It can’t. Seriously. We tried it for ourselves and were unable to generate the same result.

The last part of the article;

While we can’t offer up an explanation as to why some news outlets were able to trick their handset with an image, we can honestly say that we weren’t. We’ve reached out to Samsung for an explanation and will update this post if/when we hear back.

This means it’s not an isolated case. This kind of inconsistency in the facial recognition, should not happen, specially with a smartphone with a more than $900+ price tag.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8’s Facial Recognition unlocks using a Selfie

Mel Tajon, confirms that the unit that he used is a demo unit at Best Buy, which bring us to this question; which facial technology will consumer get with their $900+ Note 8, crappy version or a good one?

Also my take away in this video is that the Note 8’s display is so good that it mimic’s real life. 🙂
