Samsung which two weeks ago started rolling out the yummy Ice Cream Sandwich update for its Galaxy S II users, over on which, the company posted a blog stating some details behind how the things worked out i.e. how they get the upgrades ready. Buried inside the Galaxy S quasi-ICS update section was hidden this little gem: “Included in the firmware upgrade is the ‘Face Unlock’ feature found in the ICS upgrade. In response to security issues raised regarding Face Unlock, Samsung incorporated blinking for added security.” Samsung did add Face Detection unlocking to the latest value pack, and they also included “blink detection” as a way of closing a security loophole while Galaxy S users don’t have Android 4.0 upgrade.
