For many surprises, the Samsung Company announced the first product authentication by the iris analysis. It's the Galaxy Tab Iris, a tablet announced by the South Korean giant on Wednesday.

The tablet will cost about $ 200, but it will be sold only in India, as the Samsung Company aims to bring the tablet to government and business sector in the region.

The Galaxy Tab Iris uses a scanner to analyze the user's eye and authenticate as a user and owner of the tablet, the financial companies and organizations that need to verify the identity of the users are those who use the tablet, says the Samsung Company.

In addition to the functions for companies, the Samsung Company announced a development kit for the developers to create applications that take advantage of the Iris reader.

In the spec sheet, the Galaxy Tab Iris is not the most powerful, but it has needed a quad core processor 1.2GHz, runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, the front camera is 5 megapixels, 1.5 GB of RAM, internal storage of 8 GB and a micro SD card support up to 200 GB. Its battery is 3,600mAh, and everything is inside of a body of 327 grams.

The Samsung company didn’t say if the iris recognition of its new Galaxy Tab can be used as the authentication mode for purchases on the Google Play Store or the web sites already running Android Pay, and also in the phablets, besides this novelty and as already appears in the Dutch web GalaxyClub.nl, the Samsung company has already set what it will be its technology to scan the iris or retina, or at least in their mobile, the components that will be part of this special sensor that will recognize the user not by its face, but by the unmistakable mark that it's the iris of the person. This will allow things like that, to get in front of the mobile, this is able to recognize and unlocked it, asking password when you are not the user and there are others.

You can see in the document as the components "Samsung Iris" and "Samsung Eyeprint" includes, because don’t forget that the Korean company also has much of its business as a supplier of components, even its bitterest rivals it could be Apple.

Usually, such innovations appear first on the Samsung devices, as might be the Note 6 for later, after a reasonable time, it were offered to other manufacturers to create their own devices.

So far, the company hasn’t confirmed anything about its next phablet that remains a mystery, but points to a size of 5.7 inch, QHD screen on a single display device curve, instead of the dual launch there was last year with the Galaxy S6 Edge Plus Note 5. It will not miss the S Pen, for which it also have been possible the developments as it could be an articulated body and the possibility that this Note 6 to be the first that it will have a RAM of 6 GB shuffled, whose modules begins to market the Samsung company.
