This year will not go down in history as the year of mobile innovation. True, there has been more focus on augmented and virtual reality. While there are some interesting signs, dual cameras and modular phones are features that, although novel in practice, have not proven to break much new ground.
The technology industry goes its own way. “Wow” factor is decisive to impact customers, but it only works once in as many times. It’s something you get used to – it helps separate ostentation from the real presentation at smartphone launch events. I came to London thinking it would be exactly this exercise of separation which would have to be carried out during Galaxy Unpacked. I expected to see an updated S7, with a couple of enhanced features and characteristics leaked a few months ago. This was the case in part, and yet I found an innovative product, especially with its emphasis on security.
A new level of biometric security
Ah, security, the subject of recurring conversation. With many people using a 1234 PIN number, there are many for whom it is not a concern. But considering that it is now possible to tap into fingerprint scanners with a printer that and companies know more about us from data that our own families do, Samsung has decided to bring biometric security to another level.
The Galaxy Note 7 is able to read the pattern of the iris through an infrared sensor installed in the front of the phone. This method prevents the possibility of tricking the device with a printed photo or other method. My colleague Shu explained this in detail with his hands-on review.
We must remember that, even though the Note range has become quite popular among the general public, these devices are deeply related to the professional user, so this layer is not only innovative but appropriate for the concept of this phone.
