Report: Force Touch, fingerprint sensors to be popular features on 2016 Android smartphones
The fingerprint sensors will become extremely popular as mobile payment services like Apple Pay, Android Pay and Samsung Pay start taking off. Taiwan based integrated circuit designers are expected to greatly benefit from the increasing demand for the biometric feature. The fingerprint scanners are used to verify the identity of a person making a mobile payment.
Unlike the fingerprint scanners, which can be found on mid-range Android handsets, Force Touch should remain a feature found on high-end Android units in 2016.
