ZTE’s Grand S3 is one of the first smartphones in the world to offer this solution.
“We are delighted to announce our partnership with EyeVerify that brings their leading Eyeprint ID solution to the ZTE Grand S3,” said Adam ZENG Xuezhong, Executive Vice President of ZTE Corporation and CEO of ZTE Mobile Devices. “Our ZTE Grand series of smartphones is focused on offering the most secure devices in the market for business users worldwide. Coupled with EyeVerify’s leading solution, the ZTE Grand S3 represents an unbeatable option for smartphone privacy.”
Eyeprint ID offers ZTE Grand S3 users an innovative password-free mobile experience that is convenient, secure and private. The cutting-edge solution works by imaging unique vein patterns in the human eye using the Grand S3’s front facing camera.
“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 & Marketing at EyeVerify.
