If you wanted to see the much awaited iris scanner of Galaxy Note 7 in action, then these leaked images will show you how advanced it really is.

Here Is How The Iris Scanner On A Galaxy Note 7 Is Going To Work

The iris scanner on a Galaxy Note 7 is said to function faster than the fingerprint scanner, but since the smartphone has not been officially released, we are not going to give into this claim just yet. If you’re wondering how the magic of the iris scanner, there these leaked are going to be your guide. According to Sammobile, a Galaxy Note 7 user needs to place the device at an arm’s length, which is approximately 25-35cm away from their face with the front side of the smartphone facing them. Furthermore, the user also needs to position their eyes in such a way that they are pointing directly towards two circles shown on the display (image given below) while the iris recognition process has started.

It’s a pretty intriguing way of unlocking your phone and we hope that it is going to present an extremely quick way of doing things. As for the remainder of the specifications, Galaxy Note 7 will be available in a variety of storage models ranging from 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. Keep in mind that you will have a MicroSD card slot for immediate storage expansion, so you can always get away with purchasing the base storage model and not worry about the slightest issue concerning low amount of storage.


The flash memory will be based on the UFS 2.0 standard, meaning you’ll get faster read and write speeds. One of the most highly anticipated rumors is a dual-camera configuration. In terms of its hardware, Galaxy Note 7 is either going to feature a Snapdragon 820 or an Exynos 8893 underneath its hood.


To top this, Galaxy Note 7 has also been reported to feature a massive 5.7-inch screen (there could be another variant) and IP68 certification, meaning that the smartphone is going to be waterproof till a certain depth. Additionally, the upcoming handset is expected to feature 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM; this will be the same amount of RAM present in Galaxy Note 5 because instead of having more RAM, Samsung will probably be thinking that adding more memory is baseless until the tech giant can get the software done right, and it will actually save the user more battery life too.
