NEXT Biometrics to present fingerprint sensor on Smartphone back & other applications

Oslo, Norway -- NEXT Biometrics Group ASA will attend the major Cartes Secure Connexions expo in Paris November 17-19 to present NEXT Fingerprint Sensors in a variety of applications, including its NEXUS Smartphone design with a full-size fingerprint sensor of 12x17 millimeters on the back of the smartphone.

NEXT, the lowest-cost provider of high-quality fingerprint sensors, will be at Booth K-053 in Hall 4 of the Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center. Cartes 2015 is a global event dedicated to secure solutions for payment, identification and mobility.

NEXT CEO Tore Etholm-Idsoe said, “At Cartes we will be showing our sensors integrated in products targeting payments, governmental markets and other higher-end, quality critical applications. Included here will be a NEXUS Smartphone reference design in which we have integrated a full size sensor (12 by 17 mm) in the back of the phone. This facilitates secure and convenient use for close to a 100% of a population meeting the requirements of customers and applications that cannot allow simple pin-code or password based authentication as a back-up to the sensor.”

Radek Matyasek, NEXT’s Vice President EMEA Sales, said, “Several NEXT-enabled programs are in active development using our sensors. At Cartes we will also be demonstrating a new ‘NEXT-enabled’ product designed by a customer, targeting secure payment transactions.”
