Fingerprint Cards sensors featured in many smartphones introduced at MWC


Fingerprint Cards has revealed that it provides the fingerprint sensors embedded in several smartphones launched by OEMs at the recent Mobile World Congress 2018.

Biometric capabilities of the MediaPad M5 and M5 Pro launched by Huawei at the event are powered by FPC1145, and the ZTE Blade V9 was launched with the FPC1228 sensor. LG launched its K10 and K10+ with FPC1028 at MWC 2018, along with the V30S with FPC 1035.

Additionally, a still-unnamed major Japanese OEM launched two new smartphone models with the FPC1075 sensor integrated, according to FPC. Sony launched its Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact at MWC 2018, among major Japanese OEMs.

Although the company expects its sales from areas other than capacitive fingerprint sensors for smartphones to double to 10 percent of its revenues in 2018, FPC recently announced the launch of its third-generation single-chip FPC1291 sensor.
