First product launch with Fingerprint Cards’ under glass sensor

Huawei’s Mate 9 Porsche Design is the first smartphone featuring the FPC1268 and it is also Fingerprint Cards’ first market implementation of a capacitive fingerprint touch sensor under glass. As previously announced and demonstrated by Fingerprint Cards in February 2016, the FPC1268 is Fingerprint Cards’ first solution optimized for thick materials like cover glass. This enables device manufacturers to integrate fingerprint sensors in new design languages, for example completely invisible under the cover glass or used as a home button covered by glass.

During a launch event earlier, Huawei launched the Mate 9 Porsche Design smartphone featuring Fingerprint Cards’ fingerprint touch sensor FPC1268. This is the first commercial launch of FPC1268.

“This is an important milestone for us and also an acknowledgement of our team’s strong technology know-how and drive. We’ve been working hard on commercializing this product since the first demonstration at the Mobile World Congress and we’re proud to see our FPC1268 integrated in its first commercial launch”, says Pontus Jägemalm, Senior Vice President, Research & Development, Fingerprint Cards.

“With FPC1268, we’ve once again shown how our technology extends the barriers of what fingerprint sensors can enable. This is made possible thanks to our complete and holistic offering, including not only hardware, but also state-of-the-art algorithms and secure software implementations”, concludes Pontus Jägemalm.

Already received as well as expected Fingerprint Cards revenues in 2016 that relate to the sales of FPC1268 for this smartphone model are included in Fingerprint Cards’ communicated revenue guidance of 7200 – 7500 MSEK for 2016.
