SRI International (Stanford Research Institute) announced an exclusive license deal with Samsung to use its IOM (Iris on the Move) technology to Samsung for use in its mobile devices.
The first product among the list is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 tablet which will come with this technology built-in to make use of the iris recognition, hinted by SRI in their announcement.
SRI International today announced an exclusive license of Iris on the Move® (IOM) technologies to Samsung for use in Samsung mobile products. Additionally SRI has entered into a supply agreement to start production and sales of the IOM technology-embedded Samsung mobile products for B2B applications. The initial product for this supply agreement will be a customized Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 tablet with a built-in IOM iris module.
The Galaxy Tab S line up was introduced back at Mobile World Congress 2014, but we didn’t see its successor this year. The Mobile World Congress 2015 is history, but rather than the new tablets, Samsung introduced its latest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
SRI mentioned the product will be unveiled at the “SIA New Product Showcase at ISC West 2015 (the largest security industry trade show in the U.S.) and offered worldwide through SRI partners and resellers.”
We don’t know much about the upcoming product from the folks at Samsung featuring this new technology, but we’ll update you as soon as we get any other information about the upcoming Galaxy Tab S 8.4.
