Mobile devices have also changed by implementing smart technology in their features. Recently, Samsung has decided to launch the foldable Infinity Flex display phone that unfolds into a tablet. Using Infinity Flex display, they can fold the display to attend calls and can watch videos after unfolding it to a tablet. Biometrics, another notable technology has been used to unlock phones using facial and fingerprint detection. As the face and the fingerprints are unique for everyone, the level of hacking is low in this case.  Though there are several fingerprint scanners available, Apple was the first to launch the face unlock system in iPhone X.

After encountering the security and the comfort of face unlock systems, many products have started using the face unlock system. Not only in mobiles, but in the cars also have face unlock system now. The face unlock system and the fingerprint scanner on the door eliminates the usage of car keys.
