One of China’s biggest electronics manufacturers TCL Corporation on Monday launched a new TCL 560smartphone in India equipped with a unique eye-biometric verification feature.
TCL currently sells smartphones in over 170 countries (including India) in partnership with Alcatel.
Recently, Reliance Retail also launched Lyf Earth 2 smartphone that comes with retina-based unlock and a faster fingerprint sensor.
Here are the first impressions of TCL 560:
On the specifications front, the device comes with a 5.5-inch HD IPS display, quad-core processor, 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and a 5-megapixel front camera. The 4G LTE enabled device runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
To use the EyeVerify feature, go to Settings and under Lock screen tab, tap on the Screen Lock to create an Eyeprint. It takes almost a minute to capture your Eyeprint.
Now when you want to unlock the device, a small window appears on top of screen that verifies the captured Eyeprint and unlocks the smartphone in 3 seconds, approximately.
TCL 560 sports a curved design that looks elegant and is comfortable to use. While using the TCL 560, it took time to adjust to the button placement as in this smartphone, the power button is placed above volume rockers.
The IPS display delivered good brightness and contrast levels and wide viewing angles. The 5.5-inch display provides plenty of real estate to watch movies and play games, etc. The touch response is also good. The Android Marshmallow operating system felt smooth and apps open up quickly.
The 8-megapixel camera is good for shooting in bright light conditions and offers modes like HDR, face beauty, Panorama. The 5-megapixel front camera is good for selfie lovers and clicks good pictures.
