The devices each feature 5.3″ HD/IGZO TFT displays and 22.6 MPX cameras, while the FPC1145 sensor module uses what FPC calls “3D pixel sensing technology that reads virtually any finger.”

Commenting on the integrations, FPC CEO Jörgen Lantto called Sharp “one of the leading smartphone manufacturers in Japan,” adding that his team is proud the company chose the FPC1145 sensor for these devices.

As for the biometric algorithm software being used, it seems very likely that it comes from Precise Biometrics. The company issued a statement indicating that its popular Precise BioMatch Mobile technology “has through cooperation with Fingerprint Cards been integrated in two smartphones from a leading Japanese vendor.”
