Japanese electronics major Panasonic on Wednesday officially rolled out ‘Face Unlock’ feature for its Eluga Ray 700 smartphone in India.
Facial recognition on Panasonic Eluga Ray 700 will be available through the latest software update for the smartphone. In addition to face unlock, Eluga Ray 700 users can also use the fingerprint sensor for unlocking the smartphone.
“Face Recognition has now become a new trend of securing authentication for smartphone phones. Through this feature, the user can simply unlock their smartphone just by looking at it and the response is quick with an accuracy rate of over 95% when compared to a PIN or fingerprint sensor. We are planning to introduce this feature in some of our upcoming smartphones as well,” said Pankaj Rana, Business Head-Mobility Division, Panasonic India.
Panasonic launched Eluga Ray 700 along with Eluga Ray 500 in India last September. The smartphone is priced at Rs 9,999.
