A screenshot just tweeted by Hiroshi Lockheimer, Google’s SVP spoils (and confirms) the fingerprint sensor under the display of the Google Pixel 6.
Hiroshi Lockheimer, SVP of Google for Android, Chrome OS, Google Play and…, shared a fun experience with the Material You Android 12. The Material You changes the colors on the software interface to match the set wallpaper, Lockheimer showed how his phone was perfectly “recolored” to match a photo of an airplane engine, selected from his photo gallery personal.
Unfortunately, we can’t tweet you, as it was deleted not long after it was posted. To get started, the screenshot shows the Android 12 lock screen with the fingerprint symbol on the screen just below the clock. This almost certainly indicates a device with an under-display fingerprint sensor. Also, by downloading the original uploaded screenshot, it quickly turned out that it was taken on a device with a resolution of 1440×3200.
It is possible that this combination of specs is a coincidence, as there are actually some devices that have an Android 12 Beta build available and have roughly the same specs, such as Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, OnePlus 9 Pro and Oppo Find X3 Pro. However, the main theory is that this screenshot was captured on the next one Pixel 6 Pro, given the numerous Google-style icons on the screen.
Earlier this month, Google confirmed that the Pixel 6 series would have an under-display fingerprint sensor. As for the display, Google shared that the Pixel 6 would have a 1080P display while the Pro model would have risen to “QHD +”.
The new Pixels are missing less and less will arrive shortly and we don’t see that we can get our hands on it anytime soon.
