Just found a hidden folder on my Samsung S4 mini
.faceRectImg (inside. SCG)
I contains extracted image from every pictures I have in my phone, even those not taken by the stock camera...
The extracted portions are faces only...

Pretty weird...
Anybody has this too?

Phone is bought in USA...
Any link?

Well maybe this is from a face recognition app. I think samsung has such thing included in stock. Maybe it's only a temporary folder.

Not sure if Lenovo camera is the culprit.
I have a hidden folder named ".face" in the internal sd card with all the faces from my photos. I don't have the Lenovo camera installed.
I have the stock camera and MotionShot and MotionGraph from Sony.
