Xiaomi selects third generation FPC fingerprint sensor for two new smartphones


Fingerprint Cards announced that the Xiaomi Mi8 and Xiaomi Mi8 SE feature its third generation fingerprint sensor, the FPC1291.

The FPC1291 sensor was introduced earlier this year and comes in different variations for different top layers, such as ceramic or glass and, according to the company, will simplify the design process for OEMs.

“We are very happy that Xiaomi chose our product for their new smartphones, and also very proud to show that time to market from commercial sample to launched smartphone is just three months,” commented Ted Hansson, SVP BL Smartphone at Fingerprint Cards.

In the Swedish biometrics company’s latest annual report, CEO Christian Frederikson said that one of FPC’s priorities is developing its ultrasound in-display fingerprint sensor, which will scan a user’s fingerprint when placed anywhere on a smartphone screen.
