If rumours are to be believed, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, which is the name we now believe the Note 6 will be given, will see the company again demonstrate its ability to pack in as much as possible into a smartphone. It could make it the biggest, best and most powerful smartphone yet.

Not content with just having a front-mounted fingerprint sensor, it seems the Korean tech manufacturer is now looking to build a Mission Impossible-style eye scanner into its next big mobile device. 

A leaked screenshot showing beta software in Samsung's Galaxy Beta Program has revealed a new option in the security and privacy settings. This option, translated, says "use iris".

Although hardly definitive and difficult to verify as genuine, it's not the only indication that Samsung is going to use your eyeball to unlock your next phone.

An Indian site, Zauba, regularly showed lists of products imported into its homeland. One particular shipment document revealed Samsung has sent 200 units of an "IRIS CAM" from South Korea to India, for use in a mobile phone of some kind. 

While it might be jumping to conclusions somewhat, there have been previous rumblings online that Samsung's next big S-Pen equipped smartphone will have an eyeball scanner.

And although it may seem as though it would be a pure gimmick with the sole purpose of giving the Android phone-maker bragging rights over its rivals, there's evidence to suggest that an iris scanner would be far more accurate, and more secure than a fingerprint sensor. 

Previous rumours have suggested Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 6 / 7 at an event on 2 August, exactly one month before IFA conference kicks off in Berlin.

Other rumoured features include a huge 6GB of RAM, 5.80-inch QHD AMOLED screen, dual cameras and a 4,000mAh battery with fast-charging support. We also expect it will come shipped with an S-Pen stylus, running Android Marshmallow and look very similar to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
