Fingerprint Cards (FPC) announced today that an unnamed Japanese OEM has launched two smartphone models featuring its side mounted sensor FPC1145.
According to the FPC website, the FPC1145 is an evolution of FPC1140 and is recommended for side-mounted button integration with navigation. It is capable of more than 10 million finger placements and withstanding daily wear-and-tear.
The Swedish high-tech company recently announced that the Honor 8 Smart and the Honor 6X devices feature touch fingerprint sensor FPC1025, the Oppo A59s features touch fingerprint sensor FPC1245 and the FPC1145 touch sensor has been deployed in the recently launched SK telecom smartphone, Luna S.
Last month it was revealed that a Chinese firm approached Fingerprint Cards this summer about a potential acquisition that is likely to increase FPC’s current market value of SEK 33 billion (US$3.87 billion), according to a Betaville report that cites three sources familiar to the matter.
Fingerprint Cards will publish its interim report for the third quarter 2016 on Thursday October 27, 2016 at 07:00 CEST. A webcast and telephone conference will be hosted by CEO Christian Fredrikson and CFO Johan Wilsby the same day at 15:00 CEST.
