FPC tech deployed for biometric authentication in new Xiaomi device


The new Xiaomi 8 Youth mobile device comes equipped with Fingerprint Cards’ sensor FPC1291, according to a recent announcement from the Swedish biometrics company.

Earlier this year Xiaomi also selected the FPC1291 sensor for the POCO F1 and the Mi8 and Mi8 SE smartphones.

The FPC1291 is a third-generation single-chip fingerprint sensor and was introduced earlier this year. It 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.

Fingerprints Cards recently filed a complaint with the Beijing Intellectual Property Court against Shenzhen Goodix Technology Co. and a distribution company regarding infringement of one of Fingerprint Cards’ Chinese patents.
