New Delhi: Samsung plans to launch its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5, in April with 'iris scanning technology' in a possible competition to Apple's finger scanning tech in its latest iPhone 5S.

A report in Bloomberg quotes Lee Young Hee, executive vice president of Samsung's mobile business as saying that the phone will release in April and that it will be paired with a newer version of the Galaxy Gear smartwatch.

On the issue of eye scanner, Lee refused to confirm whether the S5 would actually come with it or not and indicated that it was still in a research stage.

Lee said the company would do improvements in terms of display and the feel of the cover in the new phone. Rumours suggest that the S5 have may have a diamond coating for the phone's body. A report in the Korean paper ETNews said that Samsung is working hard to change the external design of the S5 and that it is conducting R&D to apply the diamond metal surface treatment technology to metal cases.

Other rumours suggest that Samsung will launch a new flagship phone soon after the S5. The flagship is rumoured to be named the Galaxy F smartphone and will have a full metal body.
