Tweet from Samsung hints at possible retinal scanner in upcoming device, possibly Galaxy Note 4


That fingerprint scanner on your device is so last year.

These days, it’s all about retinal scanners.

Yep, you heard right. A tweet sent out by @SamsungExynos today mentions security features “unique to us.” What does that mean, exactly? Well fortunately for us, the picture accompanied by the tweet provides a hint or two.

We can expect a retinal scanner to be in the Galaxy Note 4, which could be released at IFA 2014 in September. Along with the rumored retinal scanner, the device is expected to feature a 5.7-inch QHD display, Exynos 5433 octa-core processor, Mali-T760 GPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 16-megapixel camera and Android 4.4 KitKat. A Snapdragon 805 + Adreno 420 GPU variant would also be available.

    Are you kidding me, that would be an iris scanner. Do some research before you publish…
