The open beta version of Android 12 OS revealed that the Google Pixel 6 device can come with an under-screen fingerprint scanner. This feature was recently seen in the latest beta version of the upcoming operating system.
According to the TechRadar report, developer kdrag0n mentioned “UdfpsControllerGoogle” in the code in the second Android 12 developer preview. “Udfps” means an under-screen fingerprint scanner that suggests the feature could come for a future Pixel device. This also means that the feature was developed for Pixel smartphones, rather than being supported by the Android operating system in general.
Based on this rumor, it would be wrong at the moment to assume that Google will launch a Pixel with an under-screen fingerprint scanner. However, an important clue has been given along the way. The Pixel 6 appears to come with an under-screen fingerprint scanner and the latest iteration of the Android operating system. Previously, there were also reports that the company could use a combination of an in-screen fingerprint scanner and facial recognition system to unlock the device. Another new feature noticed in the Android 12 beta was that the company made some changes in its dark mode. Currently, Pixel devices offer a black background. But with the newer update, the background of supported applications turns gray. Considering that the darker color does not reduce the battery consumption on the OLED screen, this move is a little different. Rumors for the Pixel 6 will soon be clear.
