With the combination of a special software and and the smartphone’s built-in camera, veins can be detected in visible light, giving it the ability to detect the vein pattern. The app can also check the palm pattern.
Each person’s hand veins has a unique pattern that can’t be easily copied. This added feature really improves the phone’s security.
