Samsung has launched a new tablet called the Samsung Galaxy Tab Iris. This tablet is powered by quad core processor and comes with 3G support. But the key attraction is the Iris camera on the back with built in Aadhaar authentication.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Iris features and specifications

This tablet is using Contactless technology linked with Aadhaar servers. Galaxy Tab Iris is a made in India product and the Iris feature can be useful at many areas such as banking, healthcare, security and so on.

How does the Galaxy Tab Iris feature work?

Once the Aadhaar card ID is entered, the dual eye scanners on the rear can be used to scan the user’s eye. The data collected is then verified from Aadhaar servers and the person’s identity can be quickly verified (biometric).

This biometric technology (UIDAI compliant) can come to use in many areas as it gives the company ability to securely identify the person (Aadhaar based). It’s paperless, fast and contact less.

Inside the hood the Galaxy Tab Iris is packed with quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz. It is running Lollipop with 1.5GB RAM and 8GB ROM pus micro SD card support of up to 200GB. This tablet sports a 7 inch screen with 1024 x 600 pixels resolution.
