When Samsung Galaxy S21 (or Galaxy S30) will be released in 2021, it may bring another way to unlock it. According to SamMobile, Samsung is bringing back the Galaxy S21’s Bixby voice unlock feature as an alternative to fingerprint recognition when it’s not easy to use.
According to reports, Samsung plans to launch voice unlock on the Galaxy S21 in its first release before adding the feature to other devices.
Of course, the security of voice unlock may be questionable, as someone with your high-quality audio recordings could theoretically unlock your phone. Fingerprint recognition or iris scanning is usually harder to fool, but voice unlock is more secure than the basic face unlock on many Android phones, though the biggest benefit is convenience, which can be used to unlock the phone when users can’t touch or look at it.
Of course, voice unlock isn’t the Galaxy S21’s main selling point. If previous rumors are correct, the new line will rely heavily on camera upgrades, such as the second-generation 108-megapixel sensor in the Ultra model and improved 4K and 8K video recording. And, of course, there’s the next generation of Snapdragon chips, with the possible introduction of S Pen support for Ultra models, which could mark the end of the Galaxy Note line.
We understand that Galaxy S21 series could be unveiled as early as January, but it could also be released in the usual February or March.
