A new sensor model from Fingerprint Cards is getting its debut in a newly announced OPPO smartphone: The OPPO A79 features an FPC1228 fingerprint sensor.
Part of the FPC1200 series first launched in early 2016, the sensor is designed for implementation under a glass or ceramic surface. Fingerprint Cards says the new FPC1228 is its smallest sensor designed for under-glass applications, and that its pixel area is the same as its more traditional FPC1028 sensor model.
“Thanks to the next-generation pixel technology available in the high-end under-glass series and world leading algorithms, the footprint has been minimized while maintaining excellent biometric performance,” the company asserted in a statement.
The OPPO A79 is not the first OPPO device to feature an FPC fingerprint sensor; in fact OPPO is a regular customer of FPC’s, with this past summer’s OPPO F5 having represented its most recent integration of FPC tech before the announcement of the A79.
