Ulefone has released a few details on the fingerprint recognition technology the company has used in its upcoming Ulefone Be Touch smartphone.
First off, the Be Touch is the first Chinese brand smartphone to feature a front-facing fingerprint sensor incorporated into its front home button akin to the ones used by Samsung and Apple as all the other Chinese brands such as Huawei use rear-mounted fingerprint sensors on their devices.
The company has also developed what it calls its uTouch technology for its fingerprint sensor. The technology allows for 360-degree full angle fingerprint detection with a response time of only 0.5s making it extremely easy and reliable to scan one’s finger into the sensor no matter how the user is holding the device.
uTouch, with its multi-level encryption, not only lets users unlock their Be Touch but also supports locking and unlocking of applications. The company is also working on new applications for uTouch as the development of fingerprint identification software for Android continues.
Early in the development of the Be Touch, the company had initially opted out of using fingerprint recognition technology due to its bad performance. More specifically, slide fingerprint identification technology proved to be too slow and unreliable. But the company ended up developing its uTouch technology even though it would be more expensive and difficult to manufacture.
Other than its uTouch fingerprint recognition technology, the Ulefone Be Touch also features a 5-5.inch screen with a display resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels, a MediaTek MT6752 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, microSD card expandable storage support up to 64GB, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, a 13-megapixel Sony IMX214 back-illuminated rear camera, 4G FDD LTE support, and the company’s Quick Charge technology.
The Ulefone Be Touch is now available for pre-order at some online retailers such as Geekbuying.com, Gearbest.com, and Coolicool.com for a price of $219.99.
