The many lenses on the front increase the odds of the iris scanner making it on to the final release of the Galaxy Note 7 and a previous leaked image of a supposed face plate for the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 also seemed to confirm this.

The iris scanner is not a new thing in the smartphone world with a number of manufacturers looking at the added security of eye scanning technology (The Lumia 950XL had an iris scanner). However the fingerprint scanner seems to be the sensor of choice for the most recent slew of phones but perhaps the iris scanner will be the next step as others follow in Samsung’s footsteps.
