TCL, a global electronics brand, launched a new smartphone TCL 560 in India. The company priced this phone at INR7999. Well, the Chinese company is more popular for its television sets but recently jumps into the smartphone segment and know enters into the Indian smartphone market this new device.

I got a chance to experience the device at the launch event in New Delhi. And,  I can say that the design of the phone is quite nice. The device comes with two colour options – Metallic Gold and Dark Grey. It’s a budget range smartphone but comes with many features especially the Iris Scanner which they called EyeVerify. This feature unlocks the phone by scanning your Eyes and works well casually.
