The very first leaks about the Galaxy S9 arrived early on this year. It is widely believed that owing to enhanced mass-manufacturing and production processes, the South Korean technology giant is able to speed up the flagship’s development. With the futuristic all-screen iPhone X, the Cupertino increased the antes in the mobile industry by a little. Now, i seems like the Korean OEM will once again follow the design.

Apple’s 2017 special media launch event made us be nostalgic about the better moments. It made us think when Apple used to be ahead of the loop. The Face ID, which enable by TrueDepth camera system, marks the ceremonial debut of 3D facial recognition in the mobile industry. And it’s the Cupertino who lead the change in the standard feature of a flagship device. But, now it appears like its biggest nemesis will catch up earlier than one can anticipate.

Today, another source closed to the matter makes an identical claims and adds detailed information. The supply chain sources in China said that Samsung is on its way to reverse engineer the iPhone X’s TrueDepth camera system. With that said, this will allow Samsung to imitate the Face ID on 2018’s Galaxy S9.

In addition to introducing its Face ID-like feature on the Galaxy S9, the device will also be shipping with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor. A number of sources believes the handset will be released around Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2018 in Barcelona. The smartphone’s all-screen display will be quite different from the S8, with narrower bezels on the top and bottom portions of the front panel.

What’s more interesting with Samsung’s aim to copy and reproduce the components or hardware part of the 3d facial recognition system is the South Korean tech giant be able to sufficiently mass-produce 3D Facial recognition’s modules for the Galaxy S9? After all, it’s the very same modules and components which has given Apple a headaches because the company can’t mass produce the hardware and the eventual mass-production delays of the iPhone X. Given Samsung’s vast resources, it just could be able to achieve that. Let us know what you think about Samsung’s 3D facial recognition on the Galaxy s9 in the comments section below.
