Add value for smartphone consumers with security and NFC-based use cases


With 1.3 billion units sold and a growth of more than 27% year-on-year in 2014, the smartphone market has set a new record. The number of smartphone manufacturers has also dramatically increased, making this market one of the most competitive worldwide.
