    Although we are understandably skeptical of the included leaked images in this report, it was definitely worth sharing in case they are legit. Supposedly, these images confirm that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will include Iris Scanner security technology built into the display.

    The report includes several leaked pics that support its claim. One shows the iris scanner tech (shown above), while the others simply show off the usage instructions displayed on the device and a boot screen to "enhance" its validity (shown in the thread below). We only have to wait until August 2nd to find out for sure if this report is accurate.

    What do you folks think? Is this a tech that is just a bit ahead of its time, or will it be the right moment to surprise the world with it?

    I can completely understand fingerprint readers as they are on the object you are using to unlock your phone. I just have a feeling this will be one of those technologies that does not take off, unless it can unlock your phone as quickly as using a fingerprint.

    I work for a school district and one of the kids has a device for tracking eyes. He has no use of his limbs so the device tracks his eyes to use the computer in front of him. The device isn't very powerful. An entry level device with a case that has the eye tracking hardware in it. It was eerily accurate and precise. I have no doubt this kind of tech will be put into devices that aren't necessarily for public use. Medical devices, security devices.

    I completely understand that they tech can be accurate but in terms of phone usage where the primary goal is to be secure but also to access the device as quickly as possible, I would just venture a guess to say that when the finger you use to turn on the device also unlocks it would be a faster option then an iris scanner. They already do use this technology in use for security.
