Fingerprint sensors on their way to more smartphones

Mikael Ricknäs | June 23, 2015
Cheaper sensors and broader software support will make fingerprint authentication more accessible to app developers and service providers.

Many of the more established vendors, such as LG Electronics and Sony, are still on the fence. HTC recently launched the One M9+ for the Chinese market.

Mobile payments will likely help fuel the availability of fingerprint recognition on more devices.

If Google wants its upcoming Android Pay service to take off, it needs to convince more vendors to integrate the technology. Allowing Google to offer the same functionality as Apple Pay. Just adding fingerprint recognition to this year's Nexus smartphones won't be enough. The same goes for Samsung. If the company wants Samsung Pay to be successful, more devices than the Galaxy S and Note products have to equipped with the technology.
