TCL, one of China’s largest mobile manufacturers, is set to launch a smartphone in India in the coming weeks, with biometric authentication in the form of an Iris scanner. The smartphone will be powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core processor, and also sport a curved display. TCL has claimed that the phone will be a delight for selfie lovers, pointing to a decent front-facing camera. However, there is no further information available about the device.
TCL presently sells smartphones in over 170 countries including India, and is now expected to launch a new brand in India under its partnership with Alcatel in the first week on July. TCL is internationally ranked 10th out of 12 companies that sell smartphones, according to IC Insights. The company also sells other electronic gadgets and appliances as air conditioners, washing machines and television sets. TCL has already introduced smartphones under the Alcatel OneTouch brand in India.
Alcatel launched its OneWatch in India last year exclusively through online retailers. It also launched the Alcatel GoWatch at IFA 2015. The Alcatel GoWatch features heart rate sensors, gyroscopes and accelerometers, and boasts of dustproof, shockproof and waterproof ratings.
