Samsung Galaxy S9 could arrive in a brand new colour option

Samsung Might Use Palm Scanning In Its Upcoming Smartphones

Samsung skipped the tech show for the Galaxy S8 this year, unveiling the smartphone a few weeks later.

As mentioned on the 42 Page long Patent filed by Samsung, they will be using the Camera of the phone to take a picture of the palm and the combination of lines on the palm will be matched with the ones stored on the device. Hence, a new patent from Samsung suggests that Palm Scanning will soon be helping you in that case. It's just a patent filing, and that won't necessarily translate to a finished product.

If this is true, Galaxy X will set a new benchmark in the smartphone market, provided it wins the race to debut first, as arch-rival Apple is not too far behind and filed similar patent at United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) last month on November 23.

There's nothing much we know about the Galaxy S9 specifications, but it will definitely come with an 18:9 screen-to-body aspect ratio. According to a report, Samsung is now working on two Galaxy S9 prototypes, one with front-facing in-display fingerprint sensor and other with rear fingerprint sensor. A dual rear camera is expected for the device, which means a small change in the back.

Would you like to see a purple Galaxy S9? The company also plans to implement 3D sensing facial recognition feature and rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for security. The display will reportedly measure 6 inches diagonally. Both smartphones will also be IP65/68 water and dust resistant.

Samsung already lets you unlock your phone by scanning your fingerprint and your iris, but it's now thinking of other ways to secure your device - and it involves palmistry.
