Titles such as “Android copy from iPhone” or “iPhone copy from Android” have long been commonplace, but the topic of “Samsung copying Apple” often attracts media and consumer attention. The South Korean company has often been accused of copying Apple’s ideas, and the same play was repeated at CES 2020, which opened this week.
Fingerprint and facial recognition icons displayed by Samsung
Apple’s Touch ID and Face ID icons
In its opening speech, Samsung showcased a number of biometric features as it introduced the Samsung Pass feature. To better explain these new features, Samsung has created a set of icons, two of which are first thought of Apple, not Samsung.
The photo, shared by Parker Ortolani on personal Twitter, shows that the two icons of fingerprint recognition and facial recognition are essentially the same as Apple’s Touch ID and Face ID, with only a slight change in the details.
Samsung will obviously copy Apple’s Face ID and Touch ID icons, which is unexpected, but the South Korean company does so from time to time, so we should be more or less used to it.
