ZTE unveils flagship smartphone with EyeVerify eyeprint authentication


Chinese smartphone manufacturer ZTE unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona its latest ZTE Grand S3 flagship smartphone with Eyeverify technology, according to a report by Digital Trends.

The smartphone, which is part of ZTE’s new lineup and Grand S series, takes a photo of the veins in the user’s eye with the front-facing camera to determine a unique pattern.

If the correct iris pattern is detected, the Eyeverify software unlocks the phone for the authorized user.

It remains to be seen if ZTE will also enable Grand S3 phone owners to pay using their unique eyeprint.

The ZTE Grand S3 offers significant upgrades and new features, including a 2K display, 3GB storage, Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 16 megapixel rear camera and 8 megapixel front camera, and a long battery life.

Priced at USD $480, the Grand S3 is currently available in China and will likely be available in other parts of the world in the near future.

Previously reported, ZTE recently launched its flagship ZTE Star 2 product, a new 4G LTE voice controlled smartphone.
