The Swiss-listed chipmaker saw its profits balloon after it supplied the optical sensors for Apple’s iPhone X.
Reuters reports that Swiss-listed semiconductor manufacturer AMS is eyeing a secondary listing in Hong Kong over the next 12 months.
AMS saw its profits balloon to over US$174.6m (141.1m Euros) after it supplied the optical sensors for Apple’s iPhone X which debuted facial recognition features in its popular phone series late last year.
The chipmaker plans to diversify its portfolio beyond Apple as it announced that it has snagged a 3D sensing deal from an undisclosed Asian smartphone maker.
