More and more OEMs today are moving towards including a fingerprint scanner in their flagship smartphones, and now it looks like ASUS is going to join.
According to people in the taiwanese supply chain, ASUS is expected to include their own fingerprint scanner technology into the upcoming ZenFone 3 smartphone. The manufacturer of the fingerprint scanner is rumoured to be Elan microelectronics which is also based in Taiwan.
The same sources then went on to say that ASUS expects to ship around 30 million handsets next year despite immense amounts of competition by other OEMs based in China.
The ZenFone 3 itself is expected to be launched around the same time as last year with a potential announcement during CES/MWC 2015.
