Nexus 6 Fingerprint Scanner KILLED By Apple


Nexus 6 Fingerprint Scanner KILLED By Apple


Dennis Woodside has showed the Nexus 6 may have had a fingerprint scanner if it wasn’t for that pesky Apple


The Nexus 6 is according to the Moto Y 2014, smartly, type of, and just like the Moto Y 2014 it options a fantastic H image at the again of the software. But this indented emblem has a again tale and it wasn’t placed there simply to hold the Motorola branding. 

No. According to Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside that little indent at the again of the Nexus 6 used to be firstly intended to deal with a fingerprint scanner however the advent used to be stopped as a result of Apple had purchased the arena’s highest fingerprint popularity corporate. 

“The mystery at the back of that may be that it used to be intended to be fingerprint popularity, and Apple purchased the most productive provider. So the second one easiest provider used to be the one one to be had to everybody else within the business they usually were not there but,” the Motorola CEO advised The Telegraph.

The corporate Woodside is relating to is AuthenTec, an organization Apple purchased in 2012 with a view to enlarge its fingerprint generation inside of long run iPhone fashions, beginning with the iPhone 5s, from 2013 onwards. 

There are different gamers out there, that is why you spot different, non-iPhone handsets rocking fingerprint scanners. But –– no less than in line with Woodside –– Apple has the most productive generation inside of its iPhones and iPads recently to be had. 

The BIG take care of Apple’s TouchID is, in fact, Apple Pay –– the corporate’s subsequent actually gargantuan money cow –– and this used to be the purpose Apple used to be running against all alongside. Now to be had in the United States, Apple Pay is rising abruptly, and that is spectacular given simply how unresponsive shoppers basically were approximately cellular bills on the grounds that, smartly, eternally. 

And this is our verdict on Google's recent handset from our Nexus 6 Review:

"The Nexus 6 nonetheless has a few those USPs, granted, however shall we now not child ourselves right here: most of the people purchased the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 as a result of they presented all of the fundamental, center parts you sought after from a telephone at an overly agreeable worth. The handset’s have been modest, no frills-taste devices however they labored smartly and gained over a large number of enthusiasts. People appreciated the entire ethos at the back of Google’s Nexus handsets and looked as if it would determine with what they stood for. It didn’t topic that the digital camera used to be somewhat squiffy or the battery lifestyles wasn’t so nice or it lacked LTE since the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 nonetheless presented such very good worth for cash.

"The Nexus 6 isn’t a nasty handset, even though: it’s simply disappointing to a dyed-in-the-wool Nexus consumer like myself. O had top hopes for this handset –– much more so while A noticed the specifications and that Motorola used to be in control of designing and construction it. But after checking out O used to be left with a sour style in my mouth. Google turns out to have overlooked what made the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 unique –– what separated them from each and every different general Android handset available on the market. It’s type of like while a band you in point of fact like will get somewhat of consideration after which, in a bid to attraction to much more other folks, augments it sound, attempts to do an excessive amount of and finally ends up with an album that lacks a large number of what made them just right within the first position... kind of just like the Kings of Leon."
