Microsoft: More Lumia / Windows 10 Mobile devices with Iris scanner coming soon

Windows Hello

We reported about Microsoft making Windows 10 Mobile Get Started page live. Now one of our eagle-eye readers has found quite an interesting hint / teaser from Microsoft in the Windows Hello section on this page. Microsoft has teased that,

The Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL are ready to use Windows Hello now, and more devices that have iris recognition are coming soon.

While Insiders are naturally sick of this “Coming Soon” trademark of Microsoft, here it means we can see  Lumia Mid-rangers coming packed with Iris Scanners soon, though it may even mean some high-end devices from other vendors other than Microsoft.

Lumia 750 is supposed to come in mid-December 2015 to early January 2016 as tipped by one of our sources and Lumia 850 may come in February- March. So if more Lumias are supposed to come with Iris Scanners these two may be the prime candidates.

We really don’t have much visibility about other vendors packing their upcoming Windows 10 Mobile devices with Iris Scanners. We will keep you updated if we come to know more.


Thanks Xerex for the tip. Cheers!!
