Biometrics changed the way we use smartphones, but they are not something revolutionary. Being able to unlock your smartphone with fingerprint is convenient, but it has become so commonplace that the function is no longer stands.

This summer one of the most innovative mobile operators in the world, the Japanese NTT DoCoMo, plans to release a phone with a built-in iris scanner. That’s right – the technology to scan the iris, which are often seen in science fiction movies will become available to us or at least for Japanese consumers as the beginning.

The phone of NTT DoCoMo is actually made by Fujitsu and named Arrows NX F-04G. Its scanner iris recognition will replace passwords put on their phones and can even be used to make payments when purchasing from your smartphone.

But how does the recognition of the iris of the eye works? The smartphone uses front infrared camera and infrared LED light to illuminate the eyes of the user to check their unique pattern of the iris. The device works with Android Lollipop 5.0, has 32 GB storage space, 3 GB RAM and 5.2-inch display with QHD resolution.

Unfortunately Arrows NX F-04G will probably only be available in Japan. Chinese company Vivo also launched smartphone with iris scanner (X5 Pro), which was presented yesterday. Other companies such as Samsung are also working on similar technology for smartphones, but there is no evidence when we will see such a product.
