Check out Fero’s new smartphone, the ‘Iris’.

The Fero Iris is an Android smartphone that features some pretty impressive budget technical specifications with its main highlight being its Ksh. 8,999 price tag.

That said, here is what the Fero Iris has to offer.




Display Size: 5-inch

Display Type: IPS Display

Screen Resolution: 1280×720 Pixels

Screen Resolution Density: 294 ppi

Screen Protection: None

The Fero Iris has a 5-inch IPS Display with a 1280×720 Pixels resolution. The display size is smaller than the standard for budget smartphone, but I guess it’s just right if you consider its price tag.


Dimensions: 144 x 72 x 9 mm

Weight: 137g

The Fero Iris features a generic polycarbonate candy bar smartphone design.


Operating System: Android OS, v6.0 (Marshmallow)

CPU: 1.3 GHz Quad Core


Internal Memory: 8 GB

Micro SD: Yes, up to 32 GB


The performance profile of the Fero Iris isn’t striking. A 1.3 GHz Quad Core chipset powers the Fero Iris and this is coupled with 1GB RAM.

You get 8 GB of internal storage and a micro SD slot that can support up to 32 GB of memory. The highlight of the performance profile is the Iris identification tech that secures the device.

The tech scans your Iris to verify your identity and is a helpful feature but can sometimes be gimmicky.


Rear Camera: 8 MP

Secondary Camera: 2 MP

LED Flash: Yes


You get a 8 MP for general photography and a 2MP camera for your selfies. It is therefore very interesting how the iris recognition tech works with the 2MP camera.

Battery and Extras

Battery Capacity: 2,500 mAh

A 2,500 mAh battery powers the Fero Iris.


Dual SIM


The Fero Iris is a great choice if you are out shopping for a solid smartphone while on a very tight budget.
