- The screenshot posted to Twitter shows the location of the fingerprint sensor under the Pixel 6 display.
- This image was posted by the head of Google’s Android department and quickly deleted.
- It may also display the highest screen resolution of the phone.
Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be available soon. Google has announced plans for a major revamp of its flagship Pixel smartphone later this year.
We know that the Pixel 6 series will be equipped with an under-display fingerprint sensor and use the new internal Tensor processor. Now, it seems that the first time we saw the in-screen fingerprint sensor of the Pixel 6 series has been shown on Twitter.
Hiroshi Lockheimer, head of Google’s Android department, posted a seemingly innocent picture On his twitter account. His cheeky title mentions that he is trying to use the new wallpaper combination of Android 12’s Material You theme engine. As you can see in the screenshot, the fingerprint sensor icon under the device’s display is located directly below the clock widget, which gives us the first time to see how the sensor looks on the Pixel 6.
Soon after the post was posted on Twitter, Hiroshi deleted the tweet.
As we all know, almost nothing will completely disappear from the Internet.Mishaal Rahman, Editor-in-Chief XDA-Developer, Reposted a copy of Lockheimer’s deleted Twitter post In his own name.
The screenshot itself has a resolution of 1,440 x 3,200, although Later tweets clarified The screen resolution of Pixel 6 should be 1,140 x 3,120. Regardless of screen resolution, the image also shows that Verizon’s 5G network is connected to the phone.
If this is the case, Lockheimer’s deletion of his Twitter post makes sense. After all, why delete an image taken from an existing phone? In any case, we should get more official information about the new Pixel 6 phone from Google sometime later this fall.
Are you excited about the Pixel 6 series?
