LG has not had a very happy year when it comes to their phones. While the V20 promises to be a great phone, the G5 was a sales failure despite being technically capable. With LG dumping the modules idea they are looking for other ways to innvoate and set themselves apart from the pack. Today a Korean news site is reporting that the G6 will have iris recognition.
Using a module integrated into the front facing camera LG plan to show this off in the coming days, and have it launch on their phones in 2017. While it is not known for sure whether it will arrive with the G6, it is suspectd that it will.
With iris scanning apparently a lot more secure than a fingerprint reader (one in a million fingerprints versus one in a billion iris scans), LG hope to make the G6 one of the most secure phones available, with information pointing towards it being used for payment services as well as unlocking.
Samsung have previously used iris scanning with their devices with some success. LG are hoping to build on this and hopefully have some success with the G6.
Have you used iris recognition on a phone before? How did you find it? Would an iris scanner be a spec that may sway you one way or the other when considering your next phone purchase?
