To the moment of their presentation, Samsung said that in the future will integrate the cited reader of iris also in models of range average. A made that could spread to the rest of manufacturers to adopt the same solution of security. However, when expected to happen?
While previously there had been attempts by some firms, fingerprint sensor not standardized are as security system until Apple introduced it in your iPhone 5s. Subsequently be imposed in an important volume of smartphones Android. Will the same with released by Samsung Galaxy Note 7 iris scanner happen?

Chips two-in-one, the key
The answer to this question well it can have Downwoon Anatech. This company works to integrate on a same module front camera and infrared transmitter chip. And that, according to its leaders, this measure will allow to reduce 30% of this type of component costs. A factor vitar mid-range adopt this type of biometric sensor without both the final product price and the profits of the firms. And is that currently, as happens in the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, the emitter of infrared for allow the reading of the pattern of the iris of the eye of the user is independent, something that carries a surcharge that well is can profitable in a team premium with price superior to them 800 euros, but not in a model of low cost.
According to forecasts by Dongwoon Anatech, they plan to enter the module’s front-facing camera and infrared from next year chip, so it is expected that later, this solution and own increase in the volume of orders for the component allow its adoption by more economical terminals.
