Samsung develops own Face Unlock which requires you to blink

Samsung is expected to roll out an update to existing Samsung Galaxy S users which brings ICS like features on Android 2.3. One of the new features is Face Unlock as leaked earlier on.

While Face Unlock isn’t something new for those who have been using Galaxy Nexus, Samsung has added some extra security measures by incorporating blink detection. Earlier on, we managed to fool the standard Galaxy Nexus Face Unlock with just a digital photo of a face shown from the Galaxy Note. Looks like Samsung was able to solve this security loophole way before Google.

It is also very likely that Samsung will include this improved Face Unlock on the rest of their Galaxy Android smart phones as well. Hopefully the Galaxy S II and Galaxy Note units in Malaysia will get it soon with ICS.
