Samsung Galaxy S10 Face Recognition Can Easily Be Bypassed

We've known for a while that the Galaxy Note 10 is being referred to internally at Samsung as "Da Vinci.' The codename was revealed by Samsung insider Ice Universe all the way back in September a year ago". The new flagship smartphone contains both a face recognition feature and a fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone. But that has already been overtaken by the Galaxy S10 5G which comes in at a tablet-like 6.7-inches. By convention, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will be unveiled in the second half of the year, and the smartphone will have a 5G version.

Now a recent report suggests that Samsung will ship 20 million Galaxy S10 units in the first half of the year.

Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy S10, which is the company's best of the best right now, but it looks like the plan for the company is to have a total of six different flagships on the market.

This, as you can see, is interesting because of two reasons. What they've found is a reference to the Galaxy Note 10's codename (which is Davinci, according to Ice_Universe) in the code's defconfig file. In fact, AT&T is trying so hard that it's going as far as updating phones with a fake "5G E" icon to mislead customers and make them believe they're connecting to a next-generation network. Instead, equipping a gadget with the required hardware for the connectivity requires changes in design that Samsung might not like for its premium phablet brand; a brand that the company painstakingly upgraded previous year. Rest assured, we'll definitely let you know more about the phone when more information about it becomes available.

The Note series often incorporates some of the elements introduced in the latest Galaxy S phones, so a 5G version does seem likely, especially as the Galaxy Fold will also be 5G capable.

After Samsung released the Galaxy S10 Android 9 kernel on its open source center, developer Mishaal Rehman got around digging.
