Android 8.0 or Android Oreo is the latest Android Operating System from Google and is now available on most of the budget as well as flagship phones. While companies are working to bring Android Oreo to their supported devices, Google is working on its next Android Project to be called Android P.
Earlier, we have seen that Android P would have a really cool UI that would help it to be more fluid than Apple’s IOS and now Android P is said to have a native Iris Scanner.
Till now Iris Scanner is available in Samsung’s latest Flagship Phones like Galaxy Note 7, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9 Plus, but now this would not be the future. Google is planning to give an inbuilt Biometric API that will support Iris Scanning technology and enables different manufacturers to embed an Iris Scanner in their devices.
As per an Android Police report, many commits were found to have been submitted to the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) and they include iris identification as a biometric security method.
By the inclusion of HAL Interface, Iris Scanning will standardize how will Android Framework work with Iris Scanners.
Google is expected to announce this new feature of Android P at Google I/O 2018. We can say that probably next generation Pixel phones would have an Iris Scanner and can be used to unlock the device. This feature would reduce the security flaw with the ordinary face recognition system and can not be easily fooled by photo, twins etc.
