Iris recognition technology from Delta ID in new Fujitsu smartphone

October 28, 2015 - 

Delta ID announced that Fujitsu has implemented its ActiveIRIS technology to power the iris recognition feature of its new smartphone, ARROWS NX F-02H.

Launched by NTT DOCOMO, INC in Japan, the ARROWS NX F-02H is the second smartphone released by Fujitsu that features iris recognition technology.

The company previously introduced Delta ID’s iris recognition technology in ARROWS NX F-04G in May, making it the world’s first smartphone to offer this capability.

Delta ID’s patent-pending ActiveIRIS iris recognition technology enables users to look at their device to unlock it, as well as to authenticate mobile payments and access a range of online services.

“Our customers love the iris recognition feature of the ARROWS NX F-04G smartphone,” said Katsumi Takada, Fujitsu Limited’s head of mobile phones business unit. “Fujitsu was the first to bring the convenience and security of iris recognition to smartphones, and we are now adding it to our new Arrows NX F-02H smartphone.”

The ActiveIRIS technology combines advanced software algorithm with simple, inexpensive, easy to integrate hardware, providing fast and reliable iris recognition capabilities for mobile devices users.

“We are thrilled to see consumers adopting and using our iris recognition solution,” said Salil Prabhakar, president and CEO of Delta ID. “We believe our iris recognition solution brings the best of both security and convenience to smartphones, and smartphone enabled applications and services.”
