A screenshot from software for Samsung’s newly launched Galaxy Beta program shows an option in the settings screen that, when translated into English, says “Use iris,” as shown by Indian comparison shopping site PriceRaja.com.
Further, a report displaying import and export data indicates 200 iris scanners being imported into India, which could be destined for the next Galaxy Note, according to blog site GSMArena.
Similar to fingerprint based scanners, the iris scanner will require a user to first register his/her iris scan in order to be used.
There is no official confirmation from Samsung’s end regarding this. However, last month the company launched its Galaxy Tab Iris, equipped with an iris scanner.
Other rumored features include a huge 6GB of RAM, 5.80-inch QHD AMOLED screen, dual cameras and a 4,000mAh battery with fast-charging support. We also expect it will come shipped with an S-Pen stylus, running Android Marshmallow and look very similar to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
