Galaxy Note 7 iris scanner limitations disclaimer, Grace UX shown off in leaked screenshots

Galaxy Note 7 iris scanner set-up wizard, Grace UX shown off in leaked screenshots
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is slated for an official reveal on August 2, but after so many leaks in the past months, it seems as though there is little left to reveal about the new handset. We already know that the Note 7 is going to feature an iris scanner – heck, we even saw some pictures of the system in action – but this time around, we have a myriad of screenshots showing off the Lock screen and security section in the Settings app, parts of the set-up process for the iris scanner, an S Pen Air Command menu, and other portions of the new Grace UX interface.

Among the leaked screenshots is a disclaimer that outlines the limitations of the fancy new iris scanner, and it is a long one. If you were hoping to be able to unlock the device after a night of drinking, you might be disappointed, as the disclaimer states that the Note 7 might not unlock when “some parts of your irises are hidden by narrowed or puffy eyes.” Oh, well. Otherwise, the set-up process for the scanner is very straightforward – just hold the device some 10 inches away from your face, align your eyes with the on-screen markings and wait for the scanner to do its magic.

Despite the rather lengthy list of warnings, the iris scanner should work in most scenarios, and if it doesn't, you can always resort to the unlock method of yesteryear and use your finger, right?

The latest batch of screenshots also shows off the interfaces of some stock apps, the Grace UX app drawer – which features an option for persistent alphabetical ordering of apps this time around – as well as an S Pen Air Command menu, which contains a new option called Glance and a feature to record parts of the screen and turn them into animated GIFs.

Are you excited about the Note 7 and its revamped UI? Would have you preferred it if the incessant onslaught of leaks hadn't revealed so much ahead of the official unveiling of the handset? Let us know in the comments below.
