Samsung’s designers steal Apple’s Face ID icon at CES 2020 Keynote

At CES 2020 Keynote session, Samsung made a mistake. In the keynote last night, Samsung seemed to directly copy an Apple icon. The move continues Samsung and other companies’ long-standing practice of intentionally or unintentionally cloning Apple.

This seems to be a mistake of the slide author. Samsung does not seem to use this icon in its software or product packaging. The company’s real facial recognition icon is the outline of a face, which looks more ordinary.
