OnePlus has launched a new smartphone, and it once again features a biometric sensor from Fingerprint Cards. The OnePlus 3 sports an FPC1245 fingerprint sensor.

It’s good news for Precise Biometrics, too, whose Precise BioMatch Mobile algorithm software is being used with the OnePlus 3’s FPC sensor. That maintains a longstanding alliance between Precise Biometrics and FPC that has seen the companies’ technologies used together to power the biometric capabilities of many smartphones, including the Xiaomi Redmi 3S, whose integration was announced only yesterday.
