Asian brand UMi has just unveiled the Iron Pro smartphone, pictured below and packing a metallic chassis, plus an iris and fingerprint scanner. This device is priced at $179 and it comes with some pretty good specs.
They include a 5.5 inch Full HD display, a monoblock design (a single piece of aircraft grade aluminum) with a waistline of 7.9 mm and a weight of 148 grams. This model runs on an octa core MediaTek MT6753 processor and also comes with 3 GB of RAM, Android 5.1 Lollipop and support for a wide range of ROMs. The handset offers support for a variety of ROMs, like CyanogenMod and MIUI, thanks to the UMi Rootjoy feature.
Security is taken care of by a fingerprint sensor at the back, which only requires 0.32 seconds to unlock the device. The iris scanner is called Eyeprint ID and uses the veins in the eyes to recognize the user. This one is a dual SIM nano SIM device, with 4G LTE connectivity and 16 GB of storage. Dual band WiFi is here as well and integrated within the back we find a 13 megapixel camera with Sony IMX 214 sensor.
For selfies we get an 8 MP front shooter and the battery here is a 3100 mAh unit.
