Eye scanning tech coming to Galaxy S5?

We’re only just introducing fingerprint scanners into our smartphones with Apple’s iPhone 5s and the HTC One Max, but Samsung literally has its eye on the next big thing – eye scanning.

AndroidSaS reports that the Korean manufacturer will be including eye scanning tech in the unannounced Samsung Galaxy S5. Take it with a pinch of salt for now, but this would be a pretty big leap over the current finger-based security system.

Those of us with memories that last more than two years will recall that the S2 had a face scanning system. It wasn’t the most accurate or helpful of features, and eventually disappeared, but this could bring it back with a vengeance.

Right now it’s thought that the S5 will be getting a reveal early next year. This is due to reportedly slower than expected S4 sales. And, don’t worry, it’s rumoured that it will also have a fingerprint scanner too. Phew.
