disable yellow circle around face on front camera

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I tried asking this on the android forum but got nowehere. Is there a way to disable the yellow circle around the face on the front camera for the galaxy S8? I figured there should be a way to turn this annoying feature off and I've been searching google but can'r find a way to do this. I've also tried turning off face recognition in the security settings but the yellow circle is still on.

Unfortunately not, it's a feature of the camera focusing. It zeros in on the facial features in order to capture the picture more clearly. You cannot disable this feature, I apologize.

It does this on mine as well. Never really bothered me.

 

I suspected it was part of face detection as my face is registered on the phone even though I'm not currently using it to unlock my phone.

I've deleted face data from this phone and switched off face recongition, the yellow circle is stil lthere on the front cam. Surely there must be a way to disable this.

ok thankyou for clearing that up, hopefully samsung might release an update (one day) that gives the user the option to switch this off.
