LG and Samsung have always been the rivals, mostly because both belong to a similar country and both compete in quite similar industries. Both make smartphones, TVs, refrigerators, etc and both are pretty good at it. While in the smartphone industry Samsung might have flushed LG when it comes to the sales and market share, LG still makes great phones. Its latest flagship phone LG V30 is a testament to How good LG is at designing beautiful phones.

Yes, Samsung has been ahead of LG in the design department and the camera quality for the last two or three years, however, LG has also been catching up. With the LG V30, has narrowed in on Samsung. The V30 has a slightly better design than the Note 8 and Galaxy S8. The camera quality and the screen quality is a little behind that of Galaxy S8 and Note 8, but it surpasses them in the Audio quality.

Now, LG has submitted a patent for IRIS recognition. With the release of the LG G7 getting near, the iris recognition technology involved in the LG patent may become a G7 new feature in 2018.

The patent document states that the IRIS recognition sensor will come with a few extra security features such as the sensor can adjust the accuracy according to the change in the environment. The recognition speed will depend on the distance between the eyes and the phone.  IRIS recognition function will successfully work in any light condition. In addition, there is news that LG G7 will also create multiple scan points, to prevent others from using the photos to deceive the system.

IRIS recognition is a form of biometrics technology which is based on iris identification in the human eye. The first phone including an IRIS scanner was released by Fujitsu in May 2015, however, Samsung improved and made it mainstream by including it in the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 followed by the Galaxy S8 and Note 8.

We are not sure if LG might be able to perfect the technology soon enough to include it in the G7 but they have filled the patent which means they are interested in the technology. If not in the LG G7, we will see the technology in the next V series LG flagship LG V40 or whatever name they give it.
