On the Samsung Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra, users could unlock the smartphone just by voice thanks to Bixby Voice.
Bixby. The name of Samsung’s smart assistant hasn’t been heard much lately. Without burying the project, the South Korean giant seemed not to put it too much forward as Google Assistant continues to gain momentum. However, the Galaxy S21, S21 +, and S21 Ultra could be a game-changer with some intriguing functionality.
Indeed, according to the specialized site SamMobile, the next flagships of the brand would propose to unlock your smartphone with Bixby Voice instead of using the fingerprint reader or facial recognition. According to media sources, this option would indeed appear among other biometric solutions.
Thank you One UI 3.1
Unfortunately, SamMobile claims to have no more information on this subject. We therefore do not know the precise operation of this voice recognition. One can in particular wonder if such a solution would be perfectly secure or if it would be enough to record the voice of the owner to deceive Bixby Voice and have access to his Galaxy S21.
This feature would, at least for a time, be exclusive to the Galaxy S21 thanks to One UI 3.1. Smartphones should indeed be released natively under this version of Samsung’s interface based on Android 11, while other updated devices will benefit from One UI 3.0.
