Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ new Samsung smartphones we will see in 2018 we are rumored to get a 3MP iris scanner to more easily be able to scan your eyes.
Right now I am sometimes using the 2MP iris scanner on my Galaxy S8 and it’s true that it doesn’t always work so good. Sometimes it really takes a long time for it to detect your iris. And many times it barely even works. The S8+, Galaxy S8 and Galaxy Note 8 all had a 2MP iris scanner. With this new phone they would bump it up to 3MP which is 50% more detail it can get and it will make it work so much better and faster! This will mostly be great for people that wear eyeglasses, moving their eyeballs, dark environment or too light environment.
Samsung want this process to unlock your phone in less than 1 second. As we know right now the Samsung fingerprint scanner can unlock phone in 0.1s. But I bet Samsung is working hard at improving the speed even more. Face scanners is getting more popular. Samsung first have an option to unlock phone with Iris another is that it scans for your Face. Unlock with face seems to be faster. But I bet iris scanner is more safer.
Apple is moving towards unlock phones with face too with their latest iPhone X. it seems like unlock with face will be the large thing in 2018. And that we will more move away from unlock phones with fingerprint or PIN code. Eventually we will probably have our phone unlocked the moment our body touch the device. It’s going to be interesting what other cool things that we may see in phones 2018. 2017 was the year we saw many dual camera phones and all-screen display smartphones.
