Samsung Galaxy Note 6 release may see Iris scanner
Both Apple and Samsung have long been rumoured to be working on an Iris scanner to be fitted to the company’s flagship smartphones, but so far nothing has been seen and instead owners have been using their fingerprints to unlock handsets. Now it seems that the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 release may finally see an Iris scanner.
We have heard already that the upcoming Galaxy Note 6 could feature some ground breaking specifications, and now following some trademark filings in Europe an Iris scanner looks a step closer to the smartphone market.
The company has filed for two trademarks in Europe with one being “Samsung Iris”, and the other “Samsung Eyeprint”. This seemingly means the company is about to introduce the technology into one of its flagship handsets making the Galaxy Note 6 the likely candidate.
Other rumoured specs include the 6GB of RAM we spoke about earlier along with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 processor. There has been talk of 3 Note 6 models with one being the Note 6 Lite, which will have a Full HD display instead of a Quad HD with a resolution of 2560 x 1440.
