iVOOMi celebrates its first year in the Indian market with the launch of its Anniversary Edition i1s with facial recognition technology, aiming to bring the much-coveted face unlock feature to the budget smartphone segment in India. The Classic Black variant of the Anniversary Edition would be available for purchase exclusively on Flipkart starting 9th March, 2018.
iVOOMi's face unlock feature uses the regular selfie camera, instead of a fancy infrared depth-mapping camera, claiming for a facial scan that is unique and relatively faster.
The company is providing a 2-year warranty on its flagship smartphones; i1, i1s, Me3, and Me3S, on purchases between 9th and 31st March 2018. The Jio Football Offer of Rs 2,200 instant cashback is also applicable on the Anniversary Edition i1s, making it available at an effective price of Rs 5,299.
Commenting on the same, Mr. Ashwin Bhandari, CEO, iVOOMi, India says, "iVOOMi has had an enthralling journey in the Indian smartphone market, with unbeatable 'Value for money' products launched throughout the year. Now that we have discovered the product/market fit and gained traction, we are set out on a path of execution. The untapped demand in the lower-tier cities is one of the key areas that the company is now focusing on"
"All iVOOMi products are backed by innovation as we aim to bring world class technology in all our offerings, and our latest smartphone, the Anniversary Edition i1s with facial recognition is another feather to the cap since we are the first to offer face-unlock feature under the 8k price segment", he further added.
