Discovering newer measures to keeping our devices secure is one thing mobile phone manufacturers have taken into great consideration. We have seen picture passwords work, fingerprint sensors work too, but the Iris scanner takes the trend into a whole new level.

Microsoft initially launched the feature on the Microsoft Lumia 950 and 950 XL. Here, Samsung has replicated the feat in a tablet called the Samsung Galaxy Tab Iris. This tab was built in partnership with the government of India for the “Make for India” program.

The tab itself  carries basic specs:

  • 7-inch, 600 x 1024 pixels
  • Quad-core 1.3 GHz quad-core chip.
  • 1.5 GB RAM, 8 GB of expandable storage.
  • 5 MP auto-focus rear camera.

This tablet is priced at about $199. Hopefully, Samsung will incorporate this feature in a new high end phone soonest.
