The Galaxy S10's face unlock fooled by pictures, siblings

The smartphone is available for purchase in Italy and Spain via Amazon.

While there is now ord on the A30, a Lithuanian carrier, Tele2, is now offering the Galaxy A50 in the country where it is currently up for pre-order in Pink, Blue, White and black version with deliveries for the Pink variant set for April 1, black variant starting on March 18, and the blue and white hues on March 25.

You can purchase the Galaxy M20 via Amazon in Italy and Spain.

The Galaxy M30 is equipped with a 6.4-inch full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display along with 19.5:9 aspect ratio.


While it that may come as a surprise for some, at the start of 2019, the Dutch Consumentenbond not-for-profit organization was able to show after testing 110 smartphones from multiple vendors that in 42 of them the face unlock feature can be circumvented using a high-quality portrait photo of the owner. The device ships with the old Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung Experience v9.5 out-of-the-box. The device is powered by the Exynos 7904 SoC, coupled with 3GB/4GB of RAM and 32GB/64GB storage space.

The company is offering an option to expand the storage by up to 512GB using a microSD card slot. The device packs a dual camera setup on the back, which includes a 12MP dual aperture camera (F/1.8; F/2.4) with optical image stabilization, alongside a 16MP ultra wide angle one.

There is a 16-megapixel front shooter for selfies, which also supports selfie focus. Furthermore, the South Korean giant has also incorporated a rear fingerprint scanner for security goal. Even Brazil's unlocked handsets got it. A study by a Dutch non-profit a year ago found that investigators could bypass face unlock-type of features on 42 out of the 110 smartphones they tested.
