Considering the LG G4 isn't even fully released yet, it's probably too soon to be looking at LG G5 rumors, but when they are this intriguing we can't help but share them. Supposedly, the fifth generation LG G Series device will include some high tech security that sounds too good to be true. Instead of the "potentially soon to be retro" fingerprint scanner, LG is planning to equip the G5 with a biometric iris scanner for security.
The intel revealed indicated that LG has been working directly with a company called Irience in order to push this technology quickly to market. The source also revealed that LG has already completed the hardware module for the device, and is simply polishing the algorithms which will increase the recognition range from 12in (30cm) to a solid 20in (50cm).
This seems like something out of a Sci-Fi movie, but would be incredible if true. Of course, we will have to wait and see how accurate the technology is before passing judgment. What do you folks think? Would this be useful cool tech or just PR fodder?
