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!!

    if Microsoft won’t release that would be drawstring effect on lumia 750 & 850 fans I personally feel that’s unfair hope both these 2 phones are going to be released

    npu any news about lumia 750 & 850 ???

  • awaid

    I am not sure but npu says these two phones are going to be released and an otg cable for 750 is also available and the a testing of 650 and 750 in India is underway

    Daniel Rubino says his info still is there are no mid-rangers coming. Are your sources still standing behind their claims on 750/850?

  • awaid

    I am worried that both these phones are going to be released ???? because sleaksnow said that 650 is going to be the last 5″ inch phone from Redmond giant but never heard of 750 and 850 for quite a while

    550 is there for 640 replacement then why again 650 but no word about 750 and 850 lumia that’s so unfair
