Samsung plans to introduce Note 7 iris scanner to mid range line-up in the future
It is no surprise to hear that the first Samsung smartphone to run the iris scanning technology is the just launched Samsung Galaxy Note 7 but while the premium users of this feature might be feeling on top of the world, Samsung is also looking to extend this courtesy of security boost to the mid-range Samsung smartphones in the future according to DJ Koh, the brand’s mobile division president.
This was revealed at the side-lines event held for the unpacking of this latest phablet and flagship and he has said that not only do they want to make use of the technology for just unlocking smartphones, they are also looking to integrate it into other apps so much that we would be able to use it for banking and the authorisation of other secure software.
Since there is also a plan for third party app developers to get a hold of the technology and integrate in in their own apps too, this might take a while before you start seeing it on the regular mid ranges because market factors such as fall in components’ price is bound to affect the availability but then, that is just what to expect in the long run.
Mid-range users, buckle up, the iris scanner is coming to see you (puns!) soon too.
