“Special feature down, smartphone down”, this ought to be the best description of fiercely drastic smartphone contest in domestic China, which means any brand new launch has to own something special to distinguish itself. So far, UMI IRON is able to make itself stick out of the crowd by unprecedented eye unlock function.
Although UMI IRON Smartphone is still far and away from reaching us(some said that it is available on 20th, July), however, surely you may wonder and come out questions like “How it work?”, “Is it better than fingerprint ID?” or something, so, UMI hereby sent us a clarification about this feature today.
The first issue UMI clarified is that their eyeprint identification is exclusive. Unlike some smartphone with eye unlock function already, it uses a special system called “Eyeverify ID” from service of security expert rather than requiring any specific hardware or gadget to make the difference between users.
Meanwhile, we are told how it work as well. This distinctive Eyeprint ID is able to differentiate different users by recognizing an unique vein pattern of the eye. Besides, it works perfectly even though when people verifying their eyes with contact lenses put on.
As you can see screenshots from Eyeprint ID system, it appears nothing hard to set up this function and take a fully advantage of. Besides, UMI also gives their solution to address eye unlock function being used in dark place– use the ambient light sensor and set up screen brightness to “automatic” so that an ideal brightness will be given to the system, allowing normal availability.
Of course, we will give it a go and test security difference between fingerprint and eyeprint identification later, what’s your expect towards this functions and UMI IRON?
