LG G5 rumours suggest it could be the most secure smartphone ever

If new rumours are to be believed, the LG G5 could be one of the most secure smartphones ever released. Biometric scanning represents one of the most secure ways to gain access to a phone, but rather than using a fingerprint scanner like the iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S6, the LG G5 may use your eyes.


Rumours from South Korea indicate that the new LG G5 may use an iris scanning technology developed by IRIENCE, a Korea-based biometric specialist. The report, posted on the Korean site Whowired, also goes on to suggest that the LG G5 will be able to identify different from up to 50 cm away.

LG's decision to move away from fingerprint scanners can be only seen as a good thing for the manufacturer. Phones like the Samsung S6 and iPhone 6s have made fingerprint scanning commonplace, so LG's decision to use a new and more secure technology will help the G5 stand out from its competitors.
