LG’s next flagship is rumored to land in the market early next year and if we weren’t excited enough, here’s more exciting news pouring in. As per latest reports, the LG G7 will be sporting iris scanner and to everyone’s surprise, will be supporting augmented reality much like what Apple unveiled with its iOS 11 this year.
Although rumors about LG bringing iris scanner in their flagship phone have been circulating since 2015, it looks like the tech giant might actually bring in the feature this time. We are well past the age when pass codes were the only security mode for a smartphone. It’s about time for LG to push for iris scanner because biometric recognition is increasingly becoming a part of flagship smartphone these days. Back in 2016, LG was supposed to bring in their next flagship equipped with IRIENCE technology. But, of course, that didn’t happen. Now rumors suggest that LG is looking forward to catching up with the rest.
In October last year, LG unveiled an all-in-one iris scanning module but refused to tell if they’ll use the technology on their smartphone. When the LG G6 was launched earlier this year, to several fan’s disappointment, it didn’t sport a fingerprint scanner, so we are looking forward to the technology in the LG G7. LG is supposedly also working on an artificial assistance for the next G series phone.
There are also reports that LG is working on augmented reality tech that sparked rumors that the upcoming LG G7 will support the technology. The news comes in the wake of the unveiling of iOS 11 that brought ARKit, an unparallel augmented reality experience to both iPhone and iPad.
For most people, the first encounter with AR came in the guise of a game – Pokemon Go, last year. Since then a lot of developments have been made in this field. Google launched Tango AR, an augmented reality computing platform back in 2014. As per a new report, the technology will soon be available on mobile platforms on a wider scale. The Asus Zenfone AR is a result of Asus taking advantage of the technology. As for whether we are going to see AR tech in the LG G7, it’s up for discussion until LG actually rolls out the LG G7 early next year.
