SRI International will supply iris recognition modules for Samsung devices


Iris-based scanner on a Samsung device has been rumoured for quite some time and it seems the rumour will soon turn into a reality as Samsung has signed a deal with SRI International who will supply its Iris on the Move (IOM) technology to Samsung to be integrated in its mobile devices. SRI also confirmed to start production and sales of IOM technology-embedded Samsung mobile products and the first product that will have this technology will be Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 tablet with a built-in IOM iris module.

The tablet will be showcased at the ISC West 2015 show in Las Vegas next month that will ensure faster and better iris recognition compared to fingerprint-based security.
