Biometrics News: Fingerprint Cards Ticks Off Latest Mobile Integrations

Sweden-based fingerprint sensor specialist Fingerprint Cards has launched a new “ticker” feature on its website that will offer a running tally of the mobile devices that have integrated its technology.

Currently sitting at 391, the ticker offers a vivid illustration of FPC’s outsized role as a provider of sensor solutions in the mobile market. Scrolling text beneath the ticker lists multiple recent smartphone integrations of FPC’s technology including the Redmi Note 7 and 8, Google’s Pixel 3a and 3a XL, and devices from OPPO, LG, and Xiaomi, among others.

The move comes after a recent Q2 update in which Fingerprint Cards showed a return to profitability after a challenging period in which the company – and its rivals – faced dropping ASPs in an increasingly saturated mobile biometrics market. Throughout, Fingerprint Cards has maintained a solid pace in getting its technology into new smartphone devices from a variety of partners, a fact that its new ticker serves to emphasize.

All that having been said, Fingerprint Cards has also lately sought to expand into new business areas, with biometric smart cards and payment cards currently representing a particularly important opportunity.

As for future news about mobile integrations, FPC has indicated that it will rely primarily on its ticker, but may issue press releases for particularly notable integrations such as those with new customers.
