China-based consumer electronics company Xiaomi has once again opted for a Fingerprint Cards (FPC) fingerprint sensor for a new smartphone. The Xiaomi Red Mi Note 3 Quanwangtong, a CDMA version of last fall’s Red Mi Note 3, again features an FPC1035 fingerprint sensor.
It’s good news for Precise Biometrics, too, as the company’s Precise BioMatch Mobile technology is once again providing the algorithm software powering the smartphone’s scanner. Over the past year Precise Biometrics has enjoyed many such integrations via its partnership with hardware maker FPC, and these will likely continue to boost revenues for both companies.
For FPC, this latest integration further solidifies the company’s leading position as a sensor supplier to smartphone OEMs. The last year has proven so successful for the company that its stock has outperformed all others on the European market, and in recognition of this success the company has now been nominated for the Telekom Prize, an award given by Swedish newsletter Telecom News for companies performing well in the telecommunications industry.
