Faster face recognition

- To increase security, allow your device to take its time and thoroughly scan your face by leaving the Faster recognition option off.
Alarm notifications on the AOD (Always On Display)
An adjustment has been made to prevent rare instances where an alarm related notification does not appear on the AOD while device is idle.
Navigation bar Show and hide button updated to interact with a double tap
On the previous software update, users were given a new option to turn off the navigation bar to maximize their view of the screen (by toggling the small, round lock / unlock button shown on the lower left side of the navigation bar).
With this update, users can double tap the lock / unlock button (instead of a single tap) to prevent any accidental or unintentional change in the navigation bar configuration.
