Goodix will continue to provide fingerprint sensors for OPPO phones. The company has announced that OPPO’s Reno5 Series will be the latest to use the Goodix optical in-display fingerprint sensor for authentication.
The in-display system has previously appeared in the Reno3 Series, the Reno4 Series, and the Reno Ace, in addition to the OPPO K5 and the Find X2 Series. The Reno3 hit store shelves a year ago, while the Reno4 arrived in June.
The Reno5 Series will also take advantage of Goodix’s audio technology. The devices will feature the company’s latest Smart Amplifiers, as well as the VoiceExperience solution. In that regard, the Reno5 will once again be echoing the Reno4, which similarly featured both technologies. The Reno3, on the other hand, offered capacitive in-ear detection capabilities.
In the meantime, Goodix has taken other steps to diversify its product portfolio. The company is hoping to make inroads in the automotive industry after acquiring Germany’s Dream Chip Technologies, and recently deployed its heart rate and blood oxygen detection sensor in a new smartwatch from realme. Goodix previously acquired NXP’s voice and audio business in 2019, and has since gone on to achieve multiple commercial deployments with OPPO and other smartphone manufacturers.
