Samsung Electronics America, Inc. announced today that more people in the U.S. have purchased the Galaxy Note8 than previous Samsung Note phones during the same time period. Introduced on August 23, the Galaxy Note8 — featuring the largest ever screen in a Note device, an enhanced S Pen1, and the world’s first smartphone with two 12MP rear cameras with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) on both the wide-angle and telephoto lenses — will be available in stores on September 15.

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.
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. 🙂
In an article on Yugatech, the price for the Note 8 in the Philippines will be Php 49,990.
Update: Change the pre-order date from September 9 to September 8.
