Fero Unleashes An Iris Scanner Smartphone And Other Feature Phones
A lot of innovation goes into the production of smartphones, over the years we have seen all kind of innovation in terms of design, performance, storage and quality of the camera. As a matter of fact, it got to a point where we could predict what next, because mobile phones had for a long time been competing and making improvements by basically changing the versions of operating system, increasing the storage capacity and the number of pixels of the camera, nothing out of the ordinary.
For most technological lovers we have been waiting for the “it” factor, an innovation that will be launched into the smartphone industry and revolutionise the entire industry as we know it. I have personally been waiting for the hologram technology to be in cooperated in the smartphone industry but I guess I won’t be getting that anytime soon, well unless of course in a Hollywood movie.
We are however getting something that had for a long time only existed in movies. Forget the finger scanner that recently got integrated into most of the midrange devices. Today saw Fero, a leading mobile brand launch a range of devices with some of the best features yet in the smartphone industry. One of the major key concerns for most mobile phone users is the security feature of the phone because a personal cell holds a lot of what many consider to be private. I guess it’s about time we come up with an adage that goes, “show me your phone and I will tell you your character. That said, Fero has today launched its first smartphone in the Kenyan market with a security feature that allows the users unlock their phone with their eyes and voice.
The latest addition to the growing collection of Fero smartphones is the new Fero Iris. The most outstanding feature of the Fero Iris being the Iris technology or what I like to call Unlock- your- phone-with-your-eyes feature. It comes with a 5-inch HD display with a 1GB RAM. The Fero iris is 4GLTE enabled which allows fast internet speeds with an 8MP camera at the back and 2MP at the front. The 5-inch display provides the user with an impressive visual performance with superior imaging technology that provides improved clarity, lighting and beautiful vivid colours.
Along with the launch of the Fero Iris comes a range of other feature phone and smartphones. One among them being the Royale A1, with the Royale A1 your voice is literally its command. Users will be able to unlock their phones with their voice. It is embodied in a cool classic design. It comes with a 5000mAh battery with a fast charging technology. It comes with a 5MP camera in front and 8MP back camera. The front camera comes with a flashlight. The internal storage capacity is 8GB with a 1GB RAM.
A feature phone selfie series makes part of the newly launched lot of Fero mobile phones. There is the 1.8inch F1805 (S), 2.4 inch K2401 (S) and 2.8inch K9 powerhouse. These ranges of Fero phone have an extended battery life with crystal clear display and feature touch keys. The revolution we have all been waiting for in the mobile technology industry could just be here with us.
The L100 is incredibly fast with incredible features at the most incredible price. The 5.0 inch HD IPS screen comes with Dragontrail glass protection and a 2350 mAh battery. The phone has a 5 MP Camera at the front and also a 5MP camera at the back.
