Huawei’s technological choice for the fingerprint sensor is going to the opposite direction than Apple’s and Samsung’s one. The Ascend Mate 7 presents an innovative fingerprint sensor developed by Fingerprint Cards, a main actor in capacitive sensing human interface solutions for consumer electronics companies.

The technical choice of Fingerprint Cards is totally different form the other’s. The fingerprint device is much more bigger and more expensive than its competitors (2.5 factor) to guarantee a better image quality. It presents a new sensing device design and structure; an innovative packaging and a different supply chain model.

The fingerprint sensor of the Ascend Mate 7 is located on the back side of the telephone and it has the dimension of 16.33×15.8 mm. The sensor is assembled on LGA packaging and incorporated within a rectangular shaped housing composed of an aluminum ring and plastic ring.

The report presents a detailed analysis of fingerprint structure and cost and a comparison with the Apple’s iPhone5 and Samsung’s Galaxy S5 fingerprint sensors.
