Galaxy Note 7 iris scanner quick and handy in this video

The much rumored-about Galaxy Note 7 has a much rumored-about iris scanner that adds on to the security layers that Samsung has already implemented on previous phones. While it does scream of Windows Hello and of the Axon Elite from ZTE, checking out this footage from Chinese video-sharing site Miaopai seems to tell a quick story.

That said, we can’t verify if it works the way a good iris scanner should, blocking out the contents of the phone from people whose irises don’t match the owner’s. Only one person got their hands on the supposed Note 7 in the seven-second video.

A quick look at the beginning also shows Samsung’s Always On display as part of a new “Grace UX” said to be rolled out with the Note 7’s launch on August 2.
