Samsung, Apple announce new ‘Samsung Face Shop’ app: Recode
Samsung is rolling out a new app for Samsung smartphones that allows customers to buy face-piercing tattoos from its stores and from online vendors.
Samsung will launch a new face shop called “Samsung FaceShop” in early 2018, Samsung Insider reports.
The new app will be available to both Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users.
The app will also include a variety of other Samsung products, including the Samsung Smart Lock, the Samsung Watch, the S-Pen and the Samsung Pay card reader.
The Samsung Face Shop app will have a number of features that Samsung hasn’t offered previously, including customization options, personalized recommendations, and a shopping cart.
This app will work with any of Samsung’s existing smartphone apps, and will be compatible with any Samsung smartphone running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The S7, S7 edge, S8, S9, and S10 are the latest Samsung smartphones to feature a new Face Shop.
Samsung announced a new facial recognition feature last week.
Previously, the company offered users the ability to use facial recognition technology to help determine whether a person is a criminal or a potential victim of identity theft.
The company has not said when the new app might arrive for consumers.
