The concept involves an iris reader that operates in junction with Smartphone camera through a ‘filter changing’ method, reports ETNews.

A visible ray filter and infrared ray filter are installed inside the module and they are automatically switched depending on filming mode, staff told the website.

CrucialTec said a smartphone manufacturer can reduce production cost by third through the method and added that this module will use less space.

Earlier this month, Samsung deployed iris recognition technology on its Galaxy Note 7, but using a module devoted to the biometric security method.
