Fingerprint Cards announced that the Oppa N3 is the first smartphone to use Fingerprint Card’s touch fingerprint sensor FPC1021.
Additionally, Precise Biometrics delivered the fingerprint algorithm, Precise BioMatch Mobile that is used with FPC1021.
“The demand for fingerprint algorithms for small sensors in mobile devices continues to increase,” said Håkan Persson, CEO of Precise Biometrics. “The fact that a leading Chinese smartphone vendor has chosen a solution with our technology is yet another proof that we are world leading within this area.”
Priced at $649, the Oppo N3 will be available in 20 regions worldwide by the end of 2014.
In addition to safely and conveniently unlocking the phone, Fingerprint Card’s touch fingerprint sensor is used to control the movable camera and to protect the photo album.
Located at the back of the phone, Fingerprint Card’s touch fingerprint sensor allows users to instantly protect their images after taking them with a single swipe.
Precise BioMatch Mobile integrates its fingerprint matching functionality into smartphones or tablets and is optimized for small sensors in mobile environments through a hybrid algorithm, which has achieved excellent test results in NIST Ongoing MINEX and MINEX II.
