Google Pixel 6 could get under-display fingerprint scanner
The Google Pixel 6 could have an under-display fingerprint scanner.
The latest Android 12 beta release contains a mention of 'UdfpsControllerGoogle' - which points directly to the feature - which was part of the com.google.android.systemui path.
As reported by XDA Developers after kdrag0n spotted the mention, this location suggests the feature is set for a Pixel phone rather than being support for scanners on Android devices in general.
Of course, this doesn't confirm that Google will definitely launch a handset with an under-display fingerprint scanner, but it seems more likely.
And with support being added in the new release, there's a chance Google could introduce the feature with the Pixel 6 - which will launch with the new software.
Meanwhile, a previous Android 12 rdeveloper preview also threw up evidence that the update could let Pixel phones be unlocked with a combination of facial recognition and and fingerprint scanner.
Android 12 isn't expected to fully launch until September, with plenty of time for changes.
