Is it possible for face unlock to function without having the screen on first? Like from when the screen is off and you show your face to the front cam and it unlocks in an instant. Thanks.

I don't think that's possible. That would mean the front cameras and sensors would have to be constantly on which would drain the battery pretty quick.

No it is not possible and that would be one annoying thing to have if ever implemented without the ability to turn off.

Makes sense, I just saw my friend's Huawei P20 do this and I thought It'd be possible with the note 9. Thanks for the quick reply!
