iPhone 6 With Eye ID Retina Scanner [CONCEPT]

Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) hasn’t revealed the specs and features of its upcoming iPhone 6. But rumor mills and supply chain sources continue to give a sneak peek into what to expect from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s next smartphone. SET Solution, a design team that recently unveiled the concept of iPhone Air and iPhone 6C, has worked out a new concept.

iPhone 6: the most secure device?

According to this concept, the iPhone 6 may sport an extremely high level of security. The device may come with Eye ID Retina scanner. If that happens, the iPhone may become the world’s safest smartphone. It would allow users to unlock their device, log into App Store, access their bank accounts and other services with the kind of security never seen before. However, if Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) integrates the eye scanner in its upcoming Galaxy S5, it may gain an edge over Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL). The Korean electronics giant is expected to launch the Galaxy S5 in Q1 2014.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) introduced the TouchID sensor with the iPhone 5S. If the Eye ID scanner turns out to be the real thing, the TouchID sensor will be gone. The fingerprint scanner in the iPhone 5S has been criticized because people leave their fingerprints on everything they touch. That could be used to gain access to their device.

The thickest point of this device would be only 3mm, with just 70 grams of weight. The video features an edge-to-edge screen with 5-inch display and TouchID sensor. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is under intense pressure to raise the bar with iPhone 6 as its rivals are catching up. And some of them have gone ahead of the Cupertino-based company in introducing new features.

Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) shares rose 0.14% to $558.30 in pre-market trading.
