According to a report recently published by the Korea Herald, Samsung is planning to introduce various improvements to the iris scanner on its next generation flagship device offering, particularly the Galaxy S9, which is rumored to make its debut a month from now.
Quite inevitably, passwords will be a thing of the past, replaced by biometric methods for identity verification. It is actually starting right now with most high profile smartphone releases featuring a fingerprint reader of some kind.
But according to an Engadget article, fingerprints are nearly not enough to ensure total protection. In this age wherein it is customary for people everywhere to save private or sensitive information in mobile devices or in cloud services, online security is more important than ever. This has prompted various service providers to continuously explore ways that are much safer than the standard two factor authentication process.
Is the world’s biggest seller of smartphones planning to integrate iris scanning technology on one of its upcoming phablet offerings? It appears so. An India based comparison shopping site called PriceRaja has a screen grab of software interface taken from Samsung’s recently deployed Galaxy Beta programs, and it reportedly shows an option in the settings screen that says “Use iris” (when translated to the English language).
