Samsung Internet Browser 7.4 Beta brings Intelligent Scan, news notifications, more
Samsung's mobile browser has just received another update in the beta channel that brings important changes that will most likely be made available to everyone soon, or, at least, some of them if not all.

One of the most interesting new features now available to Samsung Internet Browser beta users it Intelligent Scan, which usually allows quick logins to websites, the option to pay using Web Payments, and enables users to enter Secret Mode using their fingerprint or iris scan.

Now, Samsung Internet Browser will also allow users to take advantage of Intelligent Scan and authenticate in the browser. The feature makes use of both iris scanning and face detection, thus adding an extra layer of anti-spoofing protection.

Besides support for Intelligent Scan, Samsung Internet Browser 7.4 beta features the option to customize the Reader Mode. Users can now choose its appearance by selecting a favorite background color, font, and font size.

Furthermore, some improvements to the Download History have been implemented as well, such as the option to filter downloads by file type, and the option to share downloaded files with other via the Share panel. Also, you can now delete the downloaded files along with the Download History entries.

Samsung Internet browser users in the United States will also get a built-in news notification service. You won't receive any push notifications for breaking news stories unless you opt in in the setup screens or the setting menu though.

There are a couple of other regional improvements included in Samsung Internet 7.4 beta, which will not be available worldwide, such as a Trending section for users in China and some additional enhancements for Indian users.
