TCL 560 with Iris Scanner launched in India for ₹7999

Chinese manufacturer TCL has launched its first smartphone in India. The TCL 560 has been launched in India for ₹7999 at an event in New Delhi.


The main highlight of the TCL 560 is its Eye Verify technology. This technology makes use of the Iris Scanner of the device to authenticate the user. As obvious, the front camera is used to authenticate the user by scanning the retina after which the device is unlocked.

The device is powered by Snapdragon 210 SoC which is paired with 2 GB RAM and Adreno 304 GPU. It flaunts a 5.5-inch HD display and packs a 2500 mAh battery. The TCl 560 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Inlife UI on top of it.

The Indian smartphone market is constantly evolving and the young generation understands technology, consumers are looking for unique smartphones with advanced features and high standards to gain the maximum experience. Our strong in-house research and development team have helped in customising the smart phone especially for such consumers.
