It seems that there are some ideas that Google I wanted to have in the Nexus 6, who were left in the dark. All leaks that appeared were serving on Shamu, before becoming an actual product: anticipated that it would be a phablet, which would appear in November, and that shows Android L.
But there was one detail that was almost confirmed that it would come with it, and did not appear in the final version. We speak of the fingerprint sensor, growing in popularity among Asian companies, marketed with guarantees by Apple.
Something similar happened with the “double-tap” to awaken, which disappeared from the code in the last minute. Returning to the subject that concerns us, the people of Ars Technica has been investigating. in the source code for Android, and it has found evidence that the sensor would be in the new phone.
Not only that, Google was – and we assume that it is – working on APIs or official development tools for manage this section into the Android system. But in late August of this year there was a request for removal of development on Nexus 6. You have the test here.
We consider that the “shamu: remove fingerprint support”, implies that prototypes of Motorola that was being developed, had fingerprint sensors. Reported that they were signed by the company Validity Sensors, now owned by Synaptics.
I do not think that anyone will change your opinion about Nexus 6 by the presence or absence of a fingerprint sensor, but they are stories that we like to know, and which invite us to think that it is a feature that It will be important in future iterations of the system, and therefore, in the next Nexus.
