Samsung adds blink-to-unlock feature in Face Unlock, along with other features

One of the most talked about features of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update, was the intriguing new way to unlock your device. Using the front-facing camera, you can capture your face, and use that to unlock your device. People are still worried about the technology, though, and while nothing can be perfect, it seems to be working for the most part. That doesn’t mean that Samsung isn’t working on making it better, though, as is evident in the latest update.

With the newest version of Android being pushed out to the international version of the Galaxy S II, there’s a subtle addition to the Face Unlock feature: blink-to-unlock. You’ll now need to blink to bypass the Face Unlock screen, after it recognizes your face. A cool feature, and just an added bonus more than anything else.

Other new features included in the update are Photo Editor, S Go Launcher Pro, Beta Font and Snapshot.
