Samsung to bring iris scanner to the mid-range Smartphones this year



Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 7 smartphone with upgraded specs and new features. One of the most awaited in this smartphone is the Iris scanner and it is officially out now. The iris scanner works perfectly and it is expected that the technology will get better with constant updates. It is also one of the very few smartphones to have it and it is expected that other high-end smartphones in future will also have it.

But in case if can’t afford one of the flagship smartphone from the company then you are not completely out of luck. Yes, Samsung is expected to bring the Iris scanner to some of the other mid-ranged smartphones as well. This will happen once the costs are controllable. According to DJ Koh, president of the samsung’s mobile division, it took about 3 years to for the compay to develop this technology and he also stated that out of all the other biometric security systems, iris scanning is the most secure.

As we all know that the iris scanner in the smartphone is not there just to unlock the smartphone, but it can also be used for unlocking a locked folder or even can be used to access password protected websites etc. He also stated that they want to connect it throughout other apps as well via third party APIs. Mobile banking in future might be see large transactions happening through this secure system for authentication.

Hence through cost controlling with all these, eventually this new technology might also hit the mid-ranged smartphones as well so that the experience will be same across the range of devices. It is reported that Android is weak in terms of security and the company wants to make it better using their software to overcome this image. Note that Samsung developed it’s own mobile security platform called Knox and have implemented the fingerprint since the Galaxy S5. Stay tuned for more info on this.
