Fero Iris, a Ksh. 8,999 smartphone, launched in Kenya


Fero has today launched their latest offering in the Kenyan market the Fero Iris. This is after they launched their Royale series of phones last year. Fero Iris comes with a new security feature an iris scan that scans your eyes to unlock the phone.

The Iris is a 4G LTE enabled device with a 5 inch 1280*720 HD IPS+ display with 1 GB RAM, Quad Core processor and comes powered by a 2500mAh battery. It has a 2MP front camera and 8MP back camera with LED-flash, subject-tracking and auto-focus. You also get 8GB built-in storage with support for up to 32GB microSD memory card. It is a dual sim.

According to the International Data Corporation, global smartphone sales went up by 2.3 per cent to 1.47 billion units in 2016 leading to the smartphone industry tapping into advanced technologies and innovations for emerging smartphones. This explains why Fero decided to put the iris scan in its newest phone.

In a bid to enhance the accessibility of the phone to potential clients, Fero announced a partnership deal with Jumia to make Fero Iris and other Fero devices available across the country. The partnership will see consumers enjoy the phones at competitive prices.
