Iris scanners can be as fast as fingerprint scanners (video)


The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL both have Iris scanners, which I think is felt by most of our readers to be a second best option to the face scanners on Windows Hello laptops and the very fast fingerprint scanner of the iPhone 6S.

In the above video we however see a demo of the technology on a Fujitsu smartphone, and it should be clear from the video that it can in fact be an extremely fast way of authentication.

Now of course the actual implementation on the Lumia 950 and 950 XL is not guaranteed to be as rapid, but the technology clearly has the potential to be, and with a bit of optimization it could very well make fingerprint scanners look like yesterday’s technology.
