Forget Touch ID, the Samsung Galaxy S5 may scan your eyeballs

The future may be in your eye, not your finger
Here's something to get excited about: the Samsung Galaxy S5 could feature eye scanning technology as part of its security system.
Questions have been raised over how Samsung would respond to the TouchID fingerprint scanner Apple stuck in the iPhone 5S, but instead of going down the same route as this and the HTC One Max, the Galaxy S5 might be checking out your retinas.
The news comes via AndroidSaS, which claims the Korean firm is planning the technology for its flagship Galaxy S5, although there's no detail on how it will work.
Not set in stone
It's not exactly rocket science to assume that Samsung will launch a Galaxy S5 handset next year, although previous rumours suggest we'll get to see it earlier - potentially in January or February.
Details on the Galaxy S5 are pretty thin on the ground at the moment, but along with the eye scanner tech it might pack a 64-bit A7 processor, 3GB of RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat and 16MP camera all wrapped in a metal chassis.
We'll be keeping an eye out (see what we did there?) next year for more information.
