Google Nexus 6Google Nexus 6 which was announced back in October is a beast when comes to specifications. It comes with high-end specifications and huge 6 inch screen. One of the missing feature in the Nexus 6 is the presence of Fingerprint sensor, which already comes in Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

Fancy dimple on the back of Nexus 6 could have featured Fingerprint sensor, but due to Apple, Motorola had to drop the idea, revealed Dennis Woodside.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Dennis Woodside, former CEO of Motorola said:

The secret behind that is that it was supposed to be fingerprint recognition, and Apple bought the best supplier. So the second best supplier was the only one available to everyone else in the industry and they weren’t there yet.

Authentec is the best supplier of the fingerprint tech which was acquired by Apple and there were no alternative suppliers which could provide the quality fingerprint sensors. So Google and Motorola decided not to use the fingerprint sensor in the Nexus 6.
