Fingerprint Cards biometrics now integrated in 500 mobile devices

Fingerprint Cards has reached a milestone 500 integrations of its biometric technology in mobile devices, with the announcement that the Vivo Y30 Standard integrates the FPC1540 biometric sensor.

The company reached 400 biometric device integrations in late-2019, and FPC’s technology is now found in nine of the top ten smartphone OEM brands. The company also notes that 80 percent of all smartphones sold feature native biometrics, and the ratio of smartphone models launched by the top ten Android OEMs in 2020 including capacitive fingerprint sensors has increased from 2019 to 60 percent.

“Our technology continues to make the lives of hundreds of millions of people safer and more convenient. This is a significant milestone for Fingerprints and a marker for the biometrics industry, as biometrics is now a natural and trusted technology for many of us,” comments Ted Hansson, SVP Business Line Mobile at Fingerprint Cards in a press release celebrating the achievement. “Our capacitive fingerprint sensors continue to gain momentum in the smartphone market, where our trusted solutions are enabling innovation and differentiation for mobile OEMs.”

Five smartphones have been launched by LG with biometrics from Fingerprint Cards, the K52, K42, K92 5G, Q61 and K51S, according to a Tweet. The Realme 7, Realme Narzo 20 Pro and Realme X3 smartphones have also been announced as implementing FPC biometrics this week, along with the Oppo A92, A92S and A72 5G.

FPC has also been making gains in the PC and biometric payment card markets.
