Huawei Opts for Goodix Fingerprint Sensor in New P40 Series

Huawei has unveiled a new P40 line of 5G smartphones. The line includes the Huawei P40, the P40 Pro, and the P40 Pro+, each of which features Goodix’s optical in-display fingerprint sensor and AMOLED touch controller. The sensor will enable secure biometric authentication and speed up authentication times by as much as 30 percent.  

The news makes the P40 line the latest 5G smartphone to adopt Goodix’s fingerprint technology. The in-display sensor has already appeared in Vivo’s X30 series and the iQOO 3 5G, as well as OPPO’s Reno3 series and the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition. The Huawei P40 series also features Goodix’s smart audio amplifier, which has turned up in the Redmi K30 Pro.

The new phones are built with EMUI 10.1 operating system, while their 5G capabilities come courtesy of the Kirin 990 5G. Huawei went on to emphasize the phones’ Ultra Vision Leica camera system, which is available in triple, quad, and penta-camera configurations.

The P40 series reaffirms the strong business relationship between Huawei and Goodix. Last year’s P30 series also boasted an in-display fingerprint sensor, as did the Huawei Mate 20 X that debuted in August.

Huawei recently picked up a handful of prizes at the 2020 GLOMO Awards, largely in recognition of its pioneering efforts in the 5G space.
