New reports reveal major details about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S9 smartphones, including faster iris scanning, and dual-SIM support.

It doesn’t look like Samsung will be able to replicate the iPhone X’s Face ID feature in time for the Galaxy S9 launch, but the company has been working on making the iris scanner faster.

“Galaxy S9’s iris scanner will have an improved camera lens and functions to make it better to recognize the eyes of users,” the source said.

“The iris camera lens will be improved to 3 megapixels from 2 megapixels of Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 to capture clearer images. The scanner will better recognize users’ irises even when they wear eyeglasses, move their eyeballs or are in a too dark or too light environment.”

Meanwhile, Caseme found a listing at the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) that reveals the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus will each come in dual-SIM versions. That’s hardly surprising, considering that previous Samsung flagships had dual-SIM support, and good news to anyone looking to use two SIM cars simultaneously on Samsung’s upcoming flagship.
