Precise Biometrics and FPC fingerprint technology integrated in new Nexus smartphones


Fingerprint Cards (FPC) and Precise Biometrics have partnered to integrate their respective fingerprint recognition technologies integrated into two of Google’s two Nexus smartphones.

Precise Biometrics’ fingerprint recognition product for mobile devices, Precise BioMatch Mobile, and FPC’s touch fingerprint sensor FPC1025, have both been integrated in Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P — manufactured by LG and Huawei, respectively.

The Nexas devices are the first smartphones to use Google’s new Android 6.0 Marshmallow release, which integrates fingerprint sensor capabilities.

The smartphones also include Android Pay, the new payment service that authenticates the user’s identity via a fingerprint sensor for secure and convenient mobile payments.

Sales from the FPC1025 for this smartphone model are included in FPC’s previously reported revenue guidance of approximately 2,500 MSEK (USD $295 million) for 2015.

“Google powers a majority of the world’s smartphones with its Android operating system and these new Google Nexus devices are the first smartphones to integrate Android 6.0 and its integrated support for fingerprint sensors,” said Jörgen Lantto, CEO of FPC. “We are proud to have collaborated with Google, LG and Huawei to enable the integration of fingerprint sensors in Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P. FPC1025 supports 360 degree finger rotation capability, fast response time and industry leading 3D image quality.”

Additionally, the integration will generate license revenue for Precise Biometrics starting from the third quarter 2015, with the value based on the number of sensors FPC delivers to the mobile phone manufacturer.

“We are very proud of the confidence the company has shown to us by integrating Precise BioMatch Mobile in two smartphones,” said Håkan Persson, CEO of Precise Biometrics. “These are the first smartphones based on the operating system Android Marshmallow, which strengthens our position as the leading supplier of fingerprint software for mobile devices and gives us good prospects for continued positive market development among other vendors.”

Previously reported, Fingerprint Cards (FPC) partnered with Precise Biometrics to integrate their respective fingerprint technologies in ZTE’s new Android smartphone, the Axon Mini.
