Fingerprint Cards: FPC awarded new DW win by major Chinese Tier 2 OEM

Press release published at The Swedish Wire
Fingerprint Cards' swipe sensor technology has won another smartphone design-win (DW)* from a major Tier 2 smartphone manufacturer in China.

Fingerprint Cards (FPC) has earlier announced multiple smartphone DWs in China as well as other Asian countries. This new Design Win is for an Android smartphone model with a Chinese Tier 2 smartphone brand which in 2012 sold +10 million smartphones. The smartphone is scheduled to be launched in the end of 2013. Due to the prevailing competitive situation, the mobile phone manufacturer wants to remain anonymous until further notice.

Johan Carlström, President and Chief Executive Officer of FPC, comments:
"China is now the world's by far largest market for smartphones, with a forecasted sales volume of +440 million units in 2013. Chinese brands already account for a market share of more than 50% in the domestic market. We are delighted to announce this new smartphone design win from a Tier 2 Chinese smartphone brand in this most vital market. Due to our world-leading capacitive fingerprint technology, image quality and superior power consumption, FPC is now established as the leading alternative for fingerprint sensors in smartphones and tablets. We expect several additional design wins in China and other parts of Asia in the coming months."

*FPC definition of Design Win (DW): The decision by a device vendor (OEM or ODM) to start development of one or several commercial product(s) incorporating FPC's technology into such new product(s).
