New Samsung Patent Hints Palm Scanning Technology for Its Upcoming Smartphones


This led to speculations that Samsung might have enough time to ideal the technology before it launches the Galaxy S9. Not much is known about the device, but rumors have already started pouring in as to what we can expect from the Galaxy S9. Key sources indicate the back of the handset will get a major redesign, most likely because Samsung plans to include a dual-lens camera on the back of the device.

Even if the reports are wrong, we are glad to know that Samsung is reacting faster to Android updates.

Last year, Samsung filed a patent with the Korean Intellectual Property Office for a smartphone that can be folded in half and is expected to arrive in 2018. Many smartphones use Iris Scanning, Facial Recognition, Fingerprint Scanning, PIN Protection and Pattern lock for security of a smartphone but this palm technology might change the whole play if everyone finds it easier.

Currently, Samsung flagships have 5 methods from which a user can choose one to unlock their phones. However, chances are that Samsung might completely obliterate bezels with the upcoming Galaxy S9. It also happened to be the first bit of information about the next-gen Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm.

It has to be noted that the Galaxy Round, which made its debut in 2013, is the world's first phone with flexible display, but it only had curved AMOLED-based concave screen with refreshing gesture feature [see below]. Samsung did add a new color option to the Galaxy S8 recently but it is a Burgundy Red version.

Release Date: Its been rumored that the phone will be launched earlier than the Galaxy S8.

We are about a month away from the start of CES, the annual electronic convention that takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
