Bluboo Xtouch Handset Features Advanced Fingerprint Scanner, Supposedly Stronger than Touch ID

Bluboo Xtouch is a new handset that’s going to have a very powerful fingerprint scanner, apparently more powerful than those of the iPhone 6s and OnePlus 2, according to their press release. The device is pictured below.


Bluboo integrates the fingerprint scanner within the Home button, the physical button below the screen. The novelty here is the multiple uses of the sensor, including the unlock from screen standby mode, plus the app lock/unlock. The same sensor can open the background menu with a long touch and finally authenticate the user with the usual gesture.

We don’t have other details about the Bluboo Touch, but if the render above is to be taken into account, the handset will have stereo speakers at the bottom, what seems like an USB Type C port and a very narrow screen bezel. Bluboo claims this is a flagship, so I expect solid specs on board.
