FPC Tech Features Again in Upgraded BlackBerry Smartphone

BlackBerry has launched a new version of its KeyOne smartphone, and it once again includes a Fingerprint Cards fingerprint sensor.

FPC Tech Features Again in Upgraded BlackBerry SmartphoneThe original KEYone was launched at this year’s MWC, when it became the world’s first smartphone to feature a fingerprint sensor embedded in one of its keyboard keys. It paved the way, in a sense, for the next big embedded key deployment of FPC technology in this summer’s Modern Keyboard from Microsoft.

Like the original KEYone, the new KEYone Black Edition features an FPC1145, as well as an additional GB of RAM and twice as much flash memory. BlackBerry hasn’t yet set a release date, but says the device is coming soon.

KEYone Black Edition was launched at IFA Berlin 2017, which also saw the launch of multiple other new devices featuring FPC sensors.
