Here’s the first look at Samsung Galaxy Note 7’s iris scanning technology


Last updated: July 14th, 2016 at 07:46 UTC+02:00

Samsung is yet to unveil the Galaxy Note 7, but various features have been leaked already. One of its most interesting features is an iris scanner that is said to authenticate a user faster than the fingerprint sensor found on Samsung smartphones. Now, images have been leaked that showcase how this iris recognition system works on the Galaxy Note 7.

As you can see in the pictures below, a Galaxy Note 7 user has to place the device at an arm’s length (25-35 cm away) from their face with the screen facing towards them. Also, the user needs to position their eyes in such a way that they are pointing directly towards two circles shown on the display while iris recognition process is underway.

We currently have no information on whether Samsung’s iris recognition will work as widely as Google’s Nexus Imprint system with third-party apps and for Google Play Store purchase authentication. Do you think it’s an intuitive way to authenticate a user?

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 7 on August 2. The device is expected to feature a 5.7-inch QHD curved Super AMOLED display, a 12-megapixel primary camera, a 5-megapixel secondary camera, the latest Exynos or Snapdragon processor, 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, a microSD + UFS hybrid memory card slot, IP68 certification, and a 3600mAh battery
