Fingerprint Cards confirms its FPC1511 sensor included in Samsung Galaxy A10s


Fingerprint Cards has confirmed that the company’s FPC1511 fingerprint sensor is being used in the new Samsung Galaxy A10s smartphone. The Swedish biometrics firm first hinted at this deployment in an August statement.

According to today’s announcement, Fingerprint Cards has already received purchase orders for more than ten million sensors. Released last June, the FPC1511 is a fourth-generation capacitive fingerprint sensor that is smaller and more cost effective than previous generation sensors.

“We are proud of the fact that our technology is included in this smartphone,” says Christian Fredrikson, Fingerprint Cards’ President and CEO. “Fingerprints has earlier delivered sensors for a Samsung notebook, but this is the first time that our products are used in a Samsung smartphone.”

The company noted that it is also working on an additional production project that will likely lead to Fingerprint Cards’ biometric technology being included in another upcoming smartphone model from Samsung.

In Fingerprint Cards’ May 2019 earnings report, Fredrikson said that the company is planning a new sensor generation based on the FPC1511 that will be a major part of the company’s portfolio of capacitive sensors for 2019. Fredrikson also noted that the generational change to the FPC1511 should also drive higher profitability for the company.

Earlier this year Fingerprint Cards surpassed one billion sensors shipped.
