With Google partnering up with Motorola for last year's Nexus 6 launch, we saw a device that was quite different from previous Nexus smartphone launches. Firstly, the device came with a heftier price tag, which led several loyal Nexus fans to question whether Google itself had given in and was trying to become a part of the flagship race. Well, that's all in the past, and speaking of the past today we've managed to get our hands on several Nexus 6 prototype images that show the device with a fingerprint sensor.
Here's A Nexus 6 Prototype With A Fingerprint Sensor For Your Pleasure
Prior to its launch, we saw several quarters speak up about a fingerprint sensor on the Nexus 6. But owing to supplier issues, the plan was scrapped and we saw a device without a fingerprint sensor on board, which makes the Nexus 6 somewhat handicapped when competing with current Android flagships. After all, specifications play a very important role in the Android world, and nearly every top tier Android smartphone has a fingerprint sensor as well.
But looking at the pace things are changing, Google itself is evolving with Android M now expected to introduce several critical new features into the mix. Google's latest Android will be coming with native fingerprint sensor support on board, something which should further boost more and more smartphone manufacturers to introduce the much popular feature in their devices. And since this year's Nexus also appears to be coming with a fingerprint sensor, we'd say that the item was on the software giant's mind for quite a while.
Nexus devices have always been popular with die hard Android fans owing to the pure version of Android they carry, which provides the best experience to some. And while the Nexus 6 might become a thing of the past soon, its interesting to take a look at what may have been nevertheless. Thoughts?
