ZTE has just launched the Grand S3 smartphone with an eye-based biometric solution from EyeVerify for those who wanted to get rid of typing passwords. Called as Eyeprint ID, the biometric solution will help in unlocking the phone, at least for now.

While the company included EyePrint ID, there is no other sensor for the fingerprint scanning in the device. Moreover, there will be no dedicated sensor but something as a part of the front-facing camera, which will check the unique vein patterns in the eye. According to EyeVerify Inc., the creators of EyePrint ID, this method is highly accurate, and is a biometric technology, for smart devices that delivers convenient, secure and private authentication.

“EyeVerify is excited to launch Eyeprint ID for users of ZTE devices – enabling highly accurate biometric authentication that eliminates password pain,” said Chris Barnett, EVP Global Sales and Marketing at EyeVerify.

The blood vessels in the white of the eye is matched to authenticate and unlock the screen of the device. This is not the first place where the Grand S3 is being announced, as a domestic launch in China was already done in January, and the device also had got IF DESIGN AWARD 2015 for its top class design. According to the company, the Eyeprint ID will be used in the upcoming devices as well, and the functionality will be enhanced.

The phone is has a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and a 3100 mAh battery. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat OS, and the device has a 16-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Dual SIM support and LTE connectivity are there as well.
