Fujitsu handset uses iris scanning for mobile payments authentication

13 May 2015  |  8297 views  |  0 Woman with shopping bag

Japanese telco NTT DoCoMo and handset maker Fujitsu have unveiled a smartphone that authenticates users for mobile payments by scanning their irises.

While Apple, Samsung and others have embraced fingerprint recognition, Fujitsu's Arrows NX F-04G is the world's first smartphone that authenticates its owners by checking their eyes.

Once they have registered their iris patterns by staring into two animated circles on the phone screen, users can unlock their devices and confirm mobile payments with a glance.

The technology meets the Fido (Fast IDentity Online) UAF 1.0 standards backed by the likes of PayPal and Google.
