The video shows a person bypassing the facial recognition security feature of the Galaxy S8 by placing a photo in front of the camera. The Samsung Galaxy S8, like many other Android devices, has the sensor positioned on the rear part of the device.
But it seems, if this Chinese leaker, who says he's a member of the Samsung Galaxy Club in China, is correct, we could see the foldable Galaxy X arrive before the new Note phablet. Now, it has come to light that Samsung is planning to launch Galaxy X much earlier than expected.

The S8 Plus meanwhile, demands $825 (£779, AU$1,349) for the privilege of a bigger screen and battery - which doesn't sound like great value for money to me. It also contradicts what previous rumors have suggested, which claimed that they would be getting rid of the fingerprint sensor button entirely and instead go with an in-display fingerprint scanner. We see miniscule top and bottom bezels, paired with screen sides that extend down over the edge. Samsung has always placed the back button on the lower right and the recent apps button on the lower left.
