Google creates the Android operating system and also makes Pixel phones , and very often the former can give us clues about the latter. This is the case now, like the recently launched We could see developer beta version Android 12 to tease some Features of Google Pixel 6 .
First, according to the XDA developers ' Mishaal Rahman , lines of code in the Android 12 settings app suggest that updating software update will allow the use of a combination of facial recognition and scaOnscreen fingerprint nippers to unlock a phone, rather than one or the other.
Apparently, this doesn't seem like a confirmation of anything - but keep in mind that the only company that would really benefit from this change is the one that has been invested in both facial recognition and fingerprint scanners digital on screen.
Google does not use in-screen fingerprint scanners in its phones,but he has used facial recognition technology before. Adding a code that would allow him to use onscreen scanners alongside his current method of unlocking the phone, it could look like he's gearing up for an onscreen scanner in a future handset.
Could we see a Pixel 6 XL?
Another change brought by Android 12 is 'Silky Home ' mode, which makes menu items and entries much larger, and therefore easier to press when using the phone. 'one hand. Currently, the functionality is arguably redundant - recent Pixel phones are rather small, and the phone brands that have big-screen phones mostly already have their own one-handed modes.
But there are rumors that this feature could set the stage for a Google Pixel 6 XL. Pixel phones accompagborn the 'XL ' brothers who had larger screens than their counterparts, but since Pixel 4 XL we haven't seen any, with the data Pixel 4a and Pixel 5 not having siblings on the big screen.
Silky Home with a Google Pixel 6 XL would allow people with small hands to enjoy the big screen, without having to use both hands to navigate the interface. This rumor is dubious and could better be classified as "extrapolation" than as a feature leak, but it is very possible.
The Google Pixel 6 series is expected to debut towards the end of 2021, but as the year progresses we should know more about it.r future Google smartphones, so stay tuned to TechRadar for all the coverage.
