Iris recognition firm Delta ID has revealed that its new solution, version 3.0 of its ActiveIRIS technology, is powering the iris scanner of Fujitsu's latest smartphone, the arrows NX F-01J launched by NTT DOCOMO in Japan.
The arrows NX F-01J is the third arrows smartphone to include iris scanning technology, after the arrows NX F-04G and F-02H in 2015.
Delta ID says the latest version 3.0 of ActiveIRIS technology significantly enhances the usability and reliability of iris scanning.
Citing independent tests, it says users found the new iris scanner in the arrows NX F-01J almost two times faster than the one in F-02H, with near perfect – 99.7% success rate indoors, and above 90% success rate in challenging conditions such as outdoors, in very bright sunlight.

"We are impressed by the significant enhancements in usability and reliability in the latest version of Delta ID's ActiveIRIS technology, which offers users exceptional performance in the arrows F-01J."
