Samsung Galaxy Note 6 could feature iris scanner, IP68 certification

Samsung Galaxy Note 6 could feature iris scanner, IP68 certification

Enough has been said about the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 already, despite the dust barely having settled after the launch of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. It’s probably because rumors suggest the Note 6 could be launched considerably earlier than usual. Today, more information on the upcoming phablet has leaked online.

The most interesting titbit in today’s leak is the possibility of the Note 6 featuring an iris scanner, as Samsung recently imported an ‘iris cam’ component to India for testing. The Galaxy Note 6 isn’t mentioned in the import listing, but if Samsung is testing an iris camera/sensor it could make its way to the sixth Note flagship. There have been many rumors of iris-based security features on Samsung devices, but none have materialized till date.

The other part of the leak is a bit unsurprising. According to SamMobile, the Note 6 will come with IP68 water and dust resistance similar to the S7 and S7 edge. It would make the Note 6 the first Note device to be resistant to water, though again it wouldn’t exactly be too unsurprising to see whenever the device makes an official appearance. Nothing is certain at this point as things can always change in development, so it’s best to take everything with a pinch of salt.
