One glance is all you’ll need to unlock this ‘iris-scan’ smartphone

339503-fujitsu-arrow

A new Japanese smartphone, which is the first device to ever own an eye scanning feature to enable activation, is about to hit the shelves.

The Arrows NX F-04G from fujitsu comes with a first of its kind iris recognition system that will allow users to unlock the device, sign into apps and even authorise payments, the Independent reported.

An infrared LED works in tandem with the phone’s front-facing camera to illuminate the structure of the coloured part of your eye, and snap a reliable likeness.

Much as with fingerprint scanners on current mobiles, you need to train the system by looking at animated circles on the screen until the software makes a decent individual match, and then the more you use it, the smarter it gets.
Owners of the phone, which goes on sale in Japan later in May, will already benefit from support from the likes of Google, PayPal and Microsoft’s payment systems on top of many more thanks to the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) authentication standard to which the iris recognition system conforms.

Motorola Moto G (3rd Gen) spotted on Flipkart..!!

moto-g-2nd-genquad-core-processor

Motorola’s Moto G series has proven itself worthy over the years, offering users a great Android experience without breaking the bank. It’s been awhile since the Moto G (2nd Gen.) made its way to the public, and it looks like we’re finally starting to hear some rumors regarding the next handset in the G line. The Moto G (3rd Gen.) recently made a quick appearance on Flipkart’s website, though not much information was given about the handset.

The Motorola Moto G (2014), could now have an advanced 4GT-LTE variant featuring a better battery.

Android Police has spotted the device listed on Motorola’s official Brazilian web portal. This could possibly be the third-gen Moto G and could provide a more intuitive experience than the current Moto G (2014).

As per the latest listing, the new Moto G has the following technical specifications:

5in display with 720×1280 pixels resolution; enclosed within Gorilla Glass 3
Android 4.4.4 KitKat operating platform
1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor
1GB RAM
Dual SIM-card support
16GB internal storage
4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi and micro USB connectivity
2390 mAh battery

The above aspects are similar to the current second-gen Moto G smartphone, except for the former’s 2390 mAh battery.

Moto G (2014) features a 2070 mAh battery

The current Motorola Moto G (2014) is available in the 8GB internal storage variant in the US only.

The dual SIM card support that is expected to be offered by the next Moto G could fluctuate based on the geographical region of the smartphone’s release.

The pricing and release date of the third-gen Moto G are yet to surface.

ASUS ZenFone 2 Review: Ugly Duckling, But a Marvel In Performance

asus-zenfone-2-1

If someone were looking for a smartphone in 2013-14, at Rs 20,000 to 25,000, that could stand up to the Android flagships, there really wasn’t much on offer. Either you had to settle for a ‘dated’ flagship device or cut corners on one of the key areas like the processor or the camera. The Android landscape has seen a metamorphosis in the last 12-18 months. Established players have slipped, while newer brands like Xiaomi and OnePlus have stolen the thunder with clever, disruptive strategies. ASUS joined this innovative band that have redefined the smartphone value proposition with a set of three devices that had a huge impact in 2014; not just in India but in quite a few global markets. The ZenFone 2 is ASUS’ big roll of the dice for 2015 and it aims to better what the ZenFone 4, 5 and 6 achieved last year.

The ZenFone 2 is actually four devices that straddle price points between Rs 12,999 and Rs
22,999. That’s no easy task, given that the customer profile and expectations vary from one
price point to the other. The differences are mostly in the hardware spec sheet – the display
resolutions change and so do the processor/RAM, presenting ASUS with an unenviable
communication challenge. We put the top-end – ZE551ML under the scanner; this variant’s price point puts it head to head with the OnePlus One. The ZenFone 2 continues with the same brushed metal finish that set the first generation of ZenFones apart; it might be plastic but it’s ‘posh’ plastic. The power button sits rather awkwardly on the top of the device while the volume rocker moves to the rear (à la LG) just below the dual LED flash and the camera lens. We would have liked to see ASUS go the whole hog and move the power key to the rear as well. Overall it’s one of the best looking devices in the sub Rs 25,000 segment; especially the elegant slate grey option.

ASUS manages to cram in a 5.5-inch touch screen, by tweaking the screen to body ratio (72% on the ZenFone 2), thus making it a touch easier for one-handed navigation. At 170g, it’s certainly not feather light. The display packs an impressive 403 pixels per inch (1920x1080p). But the display is not the only improvement; ASUS ups its camera game with a 13MP shooter that gets a boost with its PixelMaster 2.0 and Pixel merging technology. The improvement is evident in low-light scenarios and we also like the ‘depth of field’ and Super HDR modes that give this shooter some serious zing. The 5MP front cam comes with a Selfie-Panorama option just in case you need to get your extended family into one frame. The ZenFone 2 takes the selfie obsession to new levels with a snap-on ‘lolliflash’, an external accessory that makes your selfies prettier with cosmetic add-ons. It’s one of many accessories that ASUS has crafted for the phone.

336822-asus-performance

The ZenFone 2’s biggest claim to fame is its 4GB of RAM, becoming the first smartphone to achieve this distinction. The generous dollop RAM combines with a 64-bit Quad Core Intel Atom Processor (2.3GHz). Intel and ASUS have transitioned their long running relationship in the personal computer space to the smartphone arena and the results on the ZenFone 2 suggest that they are on a strong wicket. Our AnTuTu benchmark tests gave the ZenFone 2 a score of 43335, just a shade under the OnePlus One but significantly higher than the Xiaomi Mi4. The PCMark work performance score was an equally impressive 5693; higher than the Xiaomi Mi Pad and the Samsung Galaxy 6. The ZenFone 2 is ridiculously fast whether you are switching tasks or
jumping from one web page to the next.

ASUS’ custom Zen UI gets a slight facelift to complement Android 5.0 (Lollipop), it’s not eye candy but we like the uncluttered and minimalist design. We were impressed with the ASUS ZenFone 2. It’s largely a workhorse phone that can handle almost any task you throw at it, thanks to its zippy processor and 4GB RAM that always has abundant ‘free space’ in reserve. The design language is elegant and yet there is no wow element that will make heads turn. Add a solid camera and a 3000 mAh battery that doesn’t tire easily and you have a successor to the first generation of the ZenFone that could ring the cash registers for ASUS yet again.

Cyanogen Taps Truecaller in Effort to Build a Better Mobile OS..!!!

sy

                 Cyanogen’s newest partnership will ensure you know exactly who’s calling you next time an unfamiliar number pops up on your phone.

The company announced on Friday a new deal with Truecaller, which will embed its technology in forthcoming Cyanogen phones. The service has a database of 1.6 billion phone numbers, which can help you to find out if that call is coming from a telemarketer or not.

Google has a similar capability with its Nexus phone dialer, which is exclusive to its own devices. Facebook also recently released its own dialer named Hello, which has similar capabilities to Truecaller. However, it’s designed more for tying your phone connections more closely with Facebook listings.

Cyanogen is all about giving users control and putting the “personal” back into mobile computing. As with any app we make available through our operating system, you have the choice to use or uninstall an app based on your individual preferences. From a development perspective, we’re continuing to work hard in building an open platform vision that surfaces the best experiences through more seamless integration.

With Truecaller you’re also able to block unwanted numbers and report those who repeatedly pester you to the service. The partnership keeps true to Cyanogen’s new-found religious principle of trying to excise every last bit of Google from Android.

Why this matters: Cyanogen is still trying to bump up its feature set as part of its Google-free Android variant. It recently announced a partnership with Microsoft that will see Outlook, Bing, and other core services installed on new devices. Despite all the anti-Google rhetoric coming from the Cyanogen camp, the real telltale sign of success will be shipping devices that consumers want to buy, and then supporting them with proper updates while maintaining app compatibility.
