Fingerprint scanner on the $150 Bluboo Xtouch goes up against Touch ID and the OnePlus 2's scanner
The Bluboo Xtouch also features a fingerprint scanner, a feature you wouldn't expect to see on a $149.99 handset. According to Bluboo, the scanner takes only .3 second to unlock the phone. The company produced a video showing that the Xtouch fingerprint scanner is faster and more accurate than Touch ID on the Apple iPhone 6, and the front-facing fingerprint scanner on the OnePlus 2.
Bluboo even slows down the speed of the video twice in order to show you that its fingerprint scanner does beat Touch ID by a fraction of a second. The phone comes with a 5-inch screen carrying 2.5D glass, and a resolution of 1080 x 1920. That works out to a 441ppi pixel density. Powering the device is a MediaTek MT6753 SoC, featuring an octa-core CPU. 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM is inside, along with 32GB of expandable native memory.
On the back of the phone is a 13MP camera, employing Sony's IMX214 sensor. An 8MP front-facing camera snaps selfies and handles video chats. A 3050mAh battery is under the hood, and the rear panel is made using a 3D printer. Android 5.1 is pre-installed.
