Iris recog­ni­tion tech­nol­ogy has also been used in smart­phones. Sam­sung Elec­tron­ics Co Ltd launched its lat­est big-screen smart­phone the Galaxy Note 7 with a curved screen and iris-recog­ni­tion tech­nol­ogy in Au­gust, but it was forced to re­call the phones due to bat­tery prob­lem.

Amer­i­can pro­fes­sional rat­ing or­ga­ni­za­tion IBG said the iris recog­ni­tion mar­ket is grow­ing at 30 per­cent a year, and the mar­ket value will reach more than $10 bil­lion in the next five years.

Sun Zhenan, a re­searcher at the Chi­nese Academy of Sci­ences, said iris recog­ni­tion tech­nol­ogy is def­i­nitely safer than face recog­ni­tion and fin­ger­print recog­ni­tion, but glass eyes and con­tact lenses could af­fect the process.
