Galaxy Nexus face unlock capabilities further tested

The Galaxy Nexus Face Unlock is a nifty party trick to unlock your phone. While it looks state of the art, it is possible to fool it with a picture of the owner.

Singtel has done a couple of Face Unlock tests on its TGIS (Thank God It’s Singtel) show. This includes testing the Galaxy Nexus with identical twins, digital photo, heavy make up and funny faces. This video isn’t exactly new but it is still interesting to watch.

Recently Samsung has finally found a solution to the photo loophole by implementing blink detection to its Face Unlock feature. This will be rolled out together with Android 2.3 Value pack for Galaxy S.
