It won’t be an exaggeration to say that Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S10 series devices are easily the most hotly-anticipated smartphones of 2019. Even though there hasn’t been any official announcement regarding the flagship(s) so far, the Galaxy S10 line-up has seen its fair share of leaks and rumors over the past few months.
Now, if a new report is to be believed, Samsung’s new top-of-the-line smartphones may come with a new facial recognition technology.
According to Phone Arena, Samsung has recently filed for trademarks related to features having the names ‘Dynamic Vision,’ Private Vision,’ and ‘Detect Vision’. While all three names are similar and hint at some sort of new facial recognition technology, it’s quite likely that Samsung will choose just one as the final official name for the feature.
Marking the tenth anniversary of Samsung’s hugely-popular Galaxy S line-up, the S10 series is expected to come packed with a whole bunch of innovative features, many of which have been constantly hinted at in the leaks and speculations over the preceding months.

Perhaps the most exciting of these rumors are the ones surrounding the display technology. Samsung’s upcoming flagships are expected to come with brand-new all-screen front-panels, having ‘punch-holes’ for the lens(es) of front-facing cameras. Other key features expected include an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint sensor, and a quad-lens rear camera system (on the Galaxy S10+). The latter will be similar to that on Samsung’s recently-launched Galaxy A9 (2018), but far superior in terms of actual imaging performance. As per a recent report, the flagships are also expected to have a 3.5mm audio port, something that’s increasingly becoming a rarity these days.
