While we are still waiting for the Lumia 950 XL to be released, someone managed to get a hold of the upcoming smartphone and got the Windows Hello security feature in Windows 10 Mobile to unlock the phone with an image of just his face.
The man, "Tafsern", posted his quick demo on YouTube during some kind of Microsoft event held in Oslo, Norway. He also wrote some impressions on the Windows Phone Reddit board:
"It worked better than I expected! It was fast, I didn't need to hold it straight in front of my face and it felt like something I could use daily with no problem at all. Felt a bit futuristic to be honest....it impressed me, and it's been a long time since I have felt really impressed by something on a phone."
