We are getting some new reports about what we might see inside the next LG high-end smartphone. This phone will probably be called LG G7 and rival Galaxy S9 and iPhone 9 in 2018. The latest rumors we are hearing now is that this phone will feature an advanced all-in-one iris scanner.
This ability to be able to unlock your phone with your face is a new feature we saw with the Galaxy S8 and iPhone X. And now it looks like LG wanna jump on-board that train as well! Another cool thing with this scanner with the new patent we see is that it might work better in low light conditions than the one we find in S8 and Galaxy Note 8. And that LG might make it more advanced by making the phone user track a series of dots on the screen with their eyes to prevent a static image being used to unlock the phone. Currently you can unlock the phone sometimes on S8 if you just have an image of the person. This will add extra security feature if the dot method works for LG.
LG has a new module that can feature both a front facing camera and iris scanner in a more compact form. But it hasn’t yet been tested inside a smartphone. It really does look like facial scanner for unlocking phones will become more popular. The iPhone X doesn’t even feature a fingerprint scanner. And next year Apple will probably remove it completely from their phones. Fingerprint scanners was the big trend in 2017 phones. Even the low end Android phones all got it! I’m curious if we will see all low end phones come with facial scanner in 2019. More low end devices are getting all the cool stuff that high-end phones in the past was exclusive with.
