Fingerprint Cards introduces new optical in-display fingerprint sensor


Fingerprint Cards today announced the launch of its first optical fingerprint sensor, FPC1610, designed to be mounted under the display of smartphones.

According to the announcement, the new FPC1610 sensor brings superior image quality for higher biometric performance and features a very slim form factor, enabling the sensor to be placed between the battery and the display giving customers more design freedom without impacting the thickness or battery size of the device.

“We are very proud of the launch of our new FPC1610,” commented Ted Hansson, SVP Business Line Mobile at Fingerprint Cards. “Its strong differentiators will give us a unique position in the growing in-display fingerprint sensor market.”

FPC1610 prototypes are now being evaluated by smartphone manufacturers and the company expects the first smartphones using FPC1610 to be launched in 2019.

The Swedish biometrics firm has had a eventful February. Fingerprint Cards posted its 2018 year-end results, introduced an enrollment demo for biometric payment cards and launched a biometric software platform that along with its T-Shape sensor will power Gemalto’s dual-interface biometric payment cards.
