Samsung has already launched its Android 10 beta program in a handful of countries and is expected to be extended soon. Together with Android 10 the Samsung interface is updated to One UI 2.0 with small changes here and there. The facial recognition receives some of these changes, with two new options.
The new version of the Samsung layer includes two novelties focused on making little better recognition. The possibility of adding different ‘looks’ and requiring the eyes to be open.
One UI 2.0: Register all your looks
These developments in the configuration of the facial recognition of Samsung have been sighted by Sammobile in the beta of Android 10. It is important to remember that it is a beta and these changes could see the light in the final version or stay on the road.
On the one hand there is the option to add an alternative look that. As the name implies, it allows you to re-register your face with a slightly different appearance. And thus potentially improve recognition. This can be useful when your appearance changes a lot from one moment to another. For example by having a different hairstyle or different shave.
On the other is the option Require that the eyes are open. Which will not accept facial recognition in case you have your eyes closed.
The One UI 2.0 beta is available in the United States, South Korea and Germany. Although it is expected to reach more countries at some point. It is not highly recommended, but if you can not wait any longer and you are used to perform this type of operations with your phones, this XDA thread indicates how you could install it on your Galaxy S10.
