SamCentral had recently done an APK (Android Package Kit) teardown of the newest Android Oreo beta for Samsung’s current flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 8, and discovered some very pretty interesting stuff about the Galaxy S9, which is expected to be unveiled less than a month from now, just in time for this year’s Mobile World Congress, which happens on February 26th until March 1st in the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain. Which interesting stuff exactly?
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.
Apart from officially announcing its latest phablet offering, the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung also took the opportunity to reveal that its newest smartphone will be the first Galaxy handset to feature iris recognition software as a means for unlocking a device.
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).
