New Google Smart Phone Recognizes Your Face

Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, which will go on sale next month, will be the most advanced smart phone from the Korean giant. It will also be the first phone to run Google’s latest operating system, Android 4.0, also known as “Ice Cream Sandwich,” following alphabetically from the earlier Gingerbread and Honeycomb. One of the most talked about features of Apple’s iPhone 4S is the voice-operated personal assistant, Siri. At the Hong Kong event, Duarte demonstrated text-to-type by talking into the Galaxy Nexus to send a text message: “Hey, man. I’d love to talk right now, but I’m a little bit busy. I’ll catch up with you later period, smiley-face,” with which the sentence ended with just that: a period and then a smiley face. His attempt to show that Face Unlock, which is supposed to unlock the phone when it recognizes the user’s face, did not fare quite so well. When Duarte then put his face up to the camera, it did not recognize him. He put that down to the “bright makeup” he needed for the event.
