galaxy tab irisAccording to a report from the other day, it was rumored that Samsung could introduce an iris-scanner to the Galaxy Note 6. This is thanks to several trademarks that Samsung had filed that made references to iris. However as it turns out, Samsung had other plans and have since launched the Galaxy Tab Iris.


Note that this isn’t some high-end Android tablet, but rather from what we can tell, it is a rather low-end device but we guess that’s not really the point. According to Samsung, this has been designed for use in the Indian government and enterprise, such as in banking and eGovernance services.

According to Samsung, “The easy-to-use biometric technology, currently incorporated in the Galaxy Tab Iris will help India spread its Digital India vision of providing technology so that every citizen of the country can have access to financial inclusion benefits. The solution will support government benefit programs and enable banks and financial institutions to streamline the process of an individual’s authentication, regardless of language and literacy barriers.”

The tablet will feature a 7-inch 1024×600 display, a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1.5GB of RAM, a 3,600mAH battery, and Android 5.0 Lollipop, but we suppose the main highlight would be its iris-scanning technology. Now it is possible the tech could still make it to the Galaxy Note 6, although by now we have to admit we are a bit skeptical.
