ZTE Grand S3 comes to market with eye-based security
Posted on 2-Mar-2015 10:59. | Tags Filed under: News.

ZTE's new flagship device, the ZTE Grand S3, will be launched with a pioneering eye-based biometric solution from EyeVerify.

The solution, Eyeprint ID, allows users a password-free method of unlocking the Grand S3, offering an enhanced level of privacy and security to the device. 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.
Prior to its debut at Mobile World Congress 2015, the ZTE Grand S3 was initially launched domestically in China on January 17th, 2015. The Grand S3 received an iF DESIGN AWARD 2015 in recognition of its top-class design, which is based on ZTE’s ‘minimalist design philosophy’.

Eyeprint ID will feature in upcoming devices in ZTE’s Grand series, and will soon be integrated with mobile payment and other applications. The enhanced privacy offered by Eyeprint ID™ positions devices in ZTE’s Grand series among the most secure devices for business users in the market.

To date, devices in ZTE’s Grand series have sold more than 5 million units globally, including the Grand S, Grand Memo, Grand Memo 5S, Grand S2, and Grand X Max in the United States. The original ZTE Grand S and Grand S2 first appeared at CES 2013 and 2014 respectively, with the Grand S representing the first Grand series device made available in the U.S. market in 2013.
