A Samsung Patent Comes to Light Illustrating a New Multi-Camera Iris Recognition System

On June 15 Patently Apple posted a report titled "Samsung's New York Event in August to Introduce the Galaxy Note 7 with Iris Scanning Security." That particular news stemmed from a Korean press report which was somewhat supported by the fact that Samsung had also interestingly filed for "Galaxy Iris" and 'Galaxy Eyeprint' trademarks recently. Samsung has been working on an iris scanner since at least 2014 and we reported in another report in June that Samsung had been working with 'lndustry Academic Cooperation Foundation – Yonsei University' on a next generation iris scanning technology. This week another patent-pending invention from Samsung surfaced at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office showcasing a new kind of triple-camera system to accommodate iris scanning.

Samsung's patent FIG. 1 presented below is a diagram illustrating an example of an image processing system including an iris recognition system. Keep in mind that this isn't a design patent so don't get caught up in the chunky form factor appearance. The patent figure is only of value emphasizing the iris processing system coming to the Galaxy Note or other Galaxy line devices.
