Galaxy Note 7 has been rumored to feature an iris scanner in numerous hardware leaks. We haven’t actually seen a smartphone demonstrate such a security feature and we’ll definitely be pleased to see a Galaxy Note 7 unlock its home screen with it. Now, we have a leaked front panel that is supposed to belong to the upcoming phablet, so bask in these images to make an idea of what to expect from the inbound flagship.

Galaxy Note 7 Front Panel Shows The Highly Anticipated Security Feature – Looks like Samsung Is Only Prepping A Curved Screen Version Of The Smartphone

When we last reported that Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 was only going to be available in the curved screen variant, it was a pleasant surprise for us, because this would be the very first Galaxy Note to sport such a screen and with the upgrade, bring forth a slew of changes that will allow massive levels of productivity for the end user. Now, with the leaked front panel, you can clearly see that the glass is bending from the sides, indicating that Samsung is clearly intending to make this smartphone its best one yet.

Additionally, the top section of the panel shows several circular cutouts, and we reckon that one of them is going to be for the iris scanner. We cannot comment on how fast the security feature is going to be. With fingerprint scanners evolving to such a point that they take a fraction of a second to unlock the phone, an iris scanner still has to be tried and tested.

As for the remainder of the specifications, Galaxy Note 7 will be available in the following storage models:

  • 64GB
  • 128GB
  • 256GB
Here’s How An Iris Scanner On A Galaxy Note 7 Works

The flash memory will be based on the UFS 2.0 standard, meaning you’ll get faster read and write speeds. As for the different colors models, Galaxy Note 7 is expected to come in the following:

  • Black
  • Silver
  • Blue

One of the most highly anticipated rumors is a dual-camera configuration. Aside from this, we reported that the upcoming device had its renders uploaded showing that the device features a curved display that practically melts to the side of the phone, giving you an illusion that the device is a bezel-less one. Now, the thing that is confusing us the most right now is what sort of chipset is going to be present inside Galaxy Note 7.

To top this, Galaxy Note 7 has also been reported to feature a massive 5.7-inch screen and IP68 certification, meaning that the smartphone is going to be waterproof till a certain depth. Additionally, the upcoming handset is expected to feature 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, because there needs to be some level of difference between this one and its smaller brothers. Furthermore, the incorporation of an iris scanner is also said to be a part of the smartphone’s configuration, and why would it not? One sad revelation of the smartphone is that it will only be packing a 3,600mAh battery, which is the same capacity as a Galaxy S7 edge.

Overall, we’re expecting tremendous potential from the upcoming smartphone? Do you guys share a similar opinion? Let us know what you think.
