With just days left from the revealing of its first ever look, the handset has now been involved with a new potential leak.
Samsung has embedded facial recognition technology into its smartphones in the past but this would be the first time that the company has used it to authorise payments.
Ahead of the actual product becoming available at the stores and outlets, the buyers are looking forward to the unpacking event that is scheduled for March 29 at an event in NY.

The president said in a tweet Friday that North Korea is "behaving very badly". "China has done little to help", Trump tweeted. Beijing was Tillerson's final stop on his first official trip to Asia, which also included visits to Japan and South Korea.
Analysts, on the other hand, consider Samsung's move as a reaction to rumors that Apple will also incorporate the facial recognition technology in their upcoming iPhone flagship model later this year. Reporter Sam Kim says that the new Galaxy S8 will employ facial recognition technology for mobile payments within a couple months after its release. The device will be available for pre-order on Samsung's official online store and also on other online retail stores like - Best Buy and Amazon. The company is now working with banks and partners to embrace this new technology, which will likely take some months to complete. So, it is being said that the Samsung Pay feature will be using a combination of all these features for added security. Ubergizmo reported that the Galaxy S8 would feature faster wireless charging with a new Qi base.
According to the post, a Bloomberg report mentions about the Galaxy S8's facial recognition feature along with fingerprint scanning and iris scanning. Samsung's newest Galaxy Tab S3 shows their commitment to providing the best devices for both productivity and entertainment. Given that both models will be made using 10nm process on the assembly, it is possible that the model from Qualcomm to be more efficient in terms of power consumption and to operate full-load at lower temperatures. Being so close to the launch event, we can't help but give some credibility to this leak. The 5.2-inch Galaxy A5 is quite reasonable at a $649 asking price, but the A7 is edging into actual flagship smartphone dollars at $799.
