The Samsung Galaxy S8 isn’t even close to being on the market, and yet the rumors are already flying. Surprisingly, none them include a battery that’s explosion proof, but they do mention the use of facial recognition technology.

According to sources at Bloomberg, Samsung will use facial-recognition technology for mobile payments within months of release.

“The Galaxy S8 to be unveiled later this month will blend fingerprint, iris and facial detection to verify users accessing mobile services including Samsung Pay, the people said”

 

Imagine paying for something with your face? That sounds fucking awesome, as well as another reason not to get plastic surgery.
