Samsung Galaxy C8 has become the latest smartphone on the market with facial recognition technology to unlock the handset using the user’s face, something the South Korean giant is promoting heavily these days. Two Galaxy C8 variants have been launched – one with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and another with 4GB of RAM and 64GB built-in storage. The Samsung Galaxy C8 price and availability details have not been officially announced yet. Apart from the facial recognition feature, the new Samsung phone also features dual cameras on the back, and comes with ‘Dual Photo’ mode that allows users to adjust the focus even after clicking the images. It also comes with an always-on display as well.
