Pinoy tech brand Starmobile introduced its first fingerprint sensor-enabled smartphone, the Starmobile UP Sense. This device promises improved security by allowing users to lock their phone and control access to their apps and files through their own fingerprint.
But how exactly does this make the UP Sense more secure? Think of it this way: if something bad happens and your smartphone gets lost, anyone who picks the phone up won’t get to mess with the original user’s personal data. It helps ease any worried consumer’s mind when they think about the value of their privacy.
Speaking of which, the fingerprint sensor won’t just deter thieves trying to get to your data. It even makes sure that friends and family members borrowing the phone won’t fiddle with private documents. Basically, the Smartmobile UP Sense ensured that personal data won’t be tampered with, no matter how hard they try.
But it doesn’t end there: there’s also the convenience of opening a lock screen with a single tap. Gone are the days of the memorized pass code, or scrambling to form the correct pattern to unlock the phone. The UP Sense, with its fingerprint sensor system in place, allows consumers to access everything with a single touch.
In terms of specs, this dual-SIM Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphone comes with a quad core CPU that can handle a wide array of apps and media. For the selfie lover, there’s an 8 megapixel rear camera with flash, topped off by a 2,500 mAh battery that can reach up to 12.5 hours talk time or 13 days standby time. Meanwhile, the storage is expandable to 32GB.

The Starmobile UP Sense will be available in Starmobile concept stores, kiosks, and authorized resellers nationwide next week, priced at Php 4,290. For even more info, be sure to check out www.starmobile.com.ph or log on to facebook.com/starmobilephones.
