Fingerprint Cards (FPC) and Precise Biometrics are providing the fingerprint technology for the new Motorola MOTO Z and MOTO Z Force smartphones and also for Sharp’s new flagship smartphones AQUOS ZETA SH-04H and AQUOS Xx3.
Both devices use Precise Biometrics’ algorithm solution for fingerprint recognition in mobile devices, Precise BioMatch Mobile. The fingerprint algorithm is based on Precise Biometrics’ standardized extractor and matcher technology, which is ISO 19794-2 compliant.
The MOTO Z and MOTO Z Force devices feature Fingerprint Cards’ touch fingerprint sensor FPC1035. The two new Sharp smartphones have FPC’s sensor FPC1145 mounted on the side.
Jörgen Lantto, CEO of FPC, comments: “Sharp is one of the leading smartphone manufacturers in Japan and we’re proud that they selected FPC1145 for their latest flagship smartphones. FPC1145 offers secure and convenient user verification, it’s an optimal combination of sensor size and performance”.
