ZTE Blade S6 software update enables iris scanner called Sky Eye
The ZTE Blade S6 has received an update today that adds iris scanning capabilities to the phone. A new feature called Sky Eye, which was not available for the phone out of the box, is the main reason for the 25.40MB update. With Sky Eye, you can use the distinctive patterns of the iris in your eye to unlock the Blade S6 in your hand.

ZTE recommends that you clean out the cache memory on the phone before installing the update, or else the feature will not install properly. In addition, ZTE suggests that you be on a Wi-Fi connection and have your battery charged to at least 30% before starting the updating process.

The ZTE Blade S6 features a 5-inch 720 x 1280 resolution screen. That works out to a pixel density of 294ppi. Driving the handset is a Snapdragon 615 SoC, which contains an octa-core 1.7GHz CPU and the Adreno 405 GPU. 2GB of RAM is included along with 16GB of expandable internal storage. A 13MP camera is on back with a 5MP snapper in front. Keeping the phone powered is a 2400mAh battery and Android 5.0 is pre-installed. Running on top of Android is the MiFavor 3.0 UI.

While we haven't seen any directions on how Sky Eye works, we would imagine that the front-facing camera is used for the feature.

Thanks for the tip!
