Synaptics Natural ID fingerprint sensor selected for Huawei Changxiang 6S

January 4, 2017 - 

Synaptics announced Huawei has selected Synaptics TouchView TDDI and Natural ID fingerprint sensors for their new Changxiang 6S smartphones.

TDDI provides high-performance touch and display for the Changxiang 6S while Natural ID manages secure biometric user authentication.

The Natural ID fingerprint sensor is embedded on the back of the Changxiang 6S, enabling users to easily unlock the phone using their finger and securely access applications and data or conduct secure mobile transactions.

Huawei’s new smartphone uses Synaptics SentryPoint security suite with Quantum Matcher technology.

Synaptics TouchView TDDI combines touchscreen controller and display driver IC (DDIC) technologies into a single chip.

The TDDI solution featured on the 6S supports its 5.0-inch screen and HD resolution, while the RAM-less reduce system costs and is ideal for value/volume-based amorphous silicon (a-Si) smartphones.

“Huawei is a cutting-edge industry leader and Synaptics is very pleased to have been selected to be the industrys first triple-play provider of fingerprint sensors, touch controllers and display drivers on the new Changxiang 6S smartphones,” said Anthony Gioeli, vice president of marketing for Synaptics’ biometrics product division, and Tim Vehling, vice president of marketing for Synaptics’ smart displays division. “We very much look forward to building on this innovative design and together deliver high-performance, highly secure human interface solutions that benefit users globally.”

Previously reported, Synaptics released a new multi-factor biometric fusion engine to ensure convenient security on smartphones, tablets and notebook PCs.
