TCL 560 with iris scanner launched at Rs. 7,999

TCL has launched its first smartphone in India, the TCL 560, at Rs. 7,999. The phone will be exclusively available via Amazon starting July 5. The phone sports a 5.5-inch HD display and is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 2GB of RAM. The device is equipped with a 2500mAh battery and offers 16GB of built-in storage. The phone sports 8MP and 5MP cameras and supports 4G. The device also runs Android Marshmallow v6.0 out of the box. However, the highlight of the device is its iris recognition technology, which the company calls EyeVerify. The system can unlock the device by scanning the user’s eyes instead of traditional unlocking methods such as a PIN or even a fingerprint scanner. 

Currently, one of the few companies to offer an iris scanner on a smartphone is Microsoft with the Lumia 950 and the Lumia 950 XL. However, both these devices are flagship devices and are priced accordingly. A few months back, Samsung offered the technology on a comparatively cheaper device called the Samsung Galaxy Iris Tab. However, the introduction of such technology in devices priced below Rs. 10,000 should help spread the technology even further.
