Samsung wants to keep it simple. The company is cleaning up its line of flagship smartphones so users now have three choices: a Galaxy, a Galaxy Edge or a Galaxy Note. Samsung launched the new Note 7, on Tuesday which looks a lot like Samsung’s previous plus-sized smartphones . Coming in with a 5.7-inch Quad HD resolution display, the Note 7 is Samsung’s answer to beat the 5.5-inch iPhone 6S Plus.
Note 7 includes several unique features such as an iris scanner, which allows users to unlock the phone with their eyes. It also comes with a waterproof stylus, a built-in program to make GIFs and a series of features which make the device super secure. It comes in four colors: black, gold, silver and blue coral.
The iris scanner is probably the most buzzed-about feature to land on the Note 7, but Samsung isn’t the first to use it as a biometric security. Fujitsu, Alcatel and Chinese manufacturer ZTE already make phones with similar technology.
So how does it work? Samsung has added a new infrared camera that scans your eyes using infrared light emitted from the LED on the front of the phone.
