For its part, BQ signed on as a client of FPC last autumn, integrating an FPC1035 sensor into its BQ Aquaris U Plus smartphone.

News of the integration arrives soon after that of the new Oppo F3 device‘s use of an FPC sensor. While FPC recently predicted a short-term slump in revenues from such integrations, the company maintains that it expects to attain 95 percent penetration of its addressable mobile market by 2020.
