Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Could Feature Retina Scanner with Enhanced Security


Samsung’s next generation flagship phablet, the Galaxy Note 4 will arrive sometime in September at the IFA 2014 tech show. In the meantime, the device is subjected to a plethora of rumors and gossips. The latest one comes in from the official Twitter account of Samsung Exynos and the tweet reads “Security can be improved using features unique to us. That’s what we envision. What would you use?” Also, there is a picture that shows a giant eye on the display.

From the image, it is clear that it shows what is called a retina scanner, but it does not clearly mention that the device is the Galaxy Note 4. However, the incorporation of a retina scanner could be a massive distinguisher only for the upcoming phablet and it will make the device more secure than a fingerprint scanner that came along with the Galaxy S5.

Besides showing a device with a giant eye on its screen, the image also shows how the retina scanner will come to use when paying bills online. While a fingerprint scanner is also secure with a process to verify the identity, there are ways to defeat it, but a retina scanner is harder to crack making it more secure.

While we cannot conclude anything with just an image leak, we will perhaps get to know more information when the Galaxy Note 4 is unleashed in September at the IFA 2014 show in Berlin.
