Panasonic India, a leader in global innovation and technology, today announced the official roll-out of ‘Face Unlock’ feature through an over the air update(FOTA) for their existing and new users on its Award Winning Best Camera Smartphone Eluga Ray 700.

In order to enable the feature, the user needs to download the latest update and simply needs to access the ‘Face Unlock’ feature in Phone Settings menu. The user can then launch it to register his/her face for the first time; once the facial characteristics are registered, the user can use it to unlock the phone by exposing the display towards his/her face. 

The Face Unlock feature is an AI-enabled feature and provides safety to the user by preventing fake events like unlocking through face image - digital or print, unlocking with face with closed eyes etc. It is not a forced application and the user may choose to use Fingerprint sensor or other conventional ways to lock/unlock the device.

Talking about the update, Mr. Pankaj Rana, Business Head – Mobility Division, Panasonic India, said, “Face Recognition has now become a new trend of securing authentication for smartphone phones. Through this feature, the user can simply unlock their smartphone just by looking at it and the response is quick with an accuracy rate of over 95% when compared to a PIN or fingerprint sensor. We are planning to introduce this feature in some of our upcoming smartphones as well.”
