Sweden’s Precise Biometrics has revealed that its algorithm solution for fingerprint recognition in mobile devices, Precise BioMatch Mobile, has through cooperation with Fingerprint Cards (FPC) been integrated in a new smartphone, the Lenovo ZUK Z2.

The company has also signed a license agreement with Taiwan's EOSMEM 
for licensing of Precise Biometrics’ algorithm solution for Precise BioMatch Mobile.

The license agreement will generate royalty revenue based on sales of fingerprint sensors from EOSMEM that includes Precise BioMatch Mobile. Royalty revenues are volume dependent and cannot be forecasted. The agreement includes a limited initial fixed fee for the right to integrate and use Precise Biometrics’ software, which will be recognized starting from the second quarter 2016.

“EOSMEM is a new interesting sensor vendor and we are looking forward to our collaboration. Our partnership further strengthens our local presence in Asia and our position as the leading supplier of fingerprint software”, said Håkan Persson, CEO of Precise Biometrics.

Late last month, FPC revealed that its touch fingerprint sensor, FPC1155, featured in the device.

The device also features a a Snapdragon 820 processor and a massive 6 GB of RAM.

The Zuk Z2 launched in China at a CNY 1,800 price point, which would translate to roughly $275 or €245 based on current exchange rates. It has a slightly smaller display than the Z2 Pro - 5-inch instead of 5.2-inch - with the same full HD 1080p resolution and 2.5D curved glass. On the other hand, the Z2 Pro has a 3,100 mAh battery, while the new Zuk Z2 packs a larger 3,500 mAh unit.
