As soon as they were released, the fingerprint sensors of the Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro were widely criticized. The Mountain View company intends to correct the situation for the Pixel 6a.

The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro were heckled when they were released.

The Android Central site reports that Rick Osterloh, vice president of devices and services at Google, has confirmed that a brand new sensor will be installed under the screen of this model. However, he did not give any additional information on the latter. It is therefore unclear whether or not this sensor will be based on another technology.

This change does not necessarily mean that performance will be better. The hardware is not everything, and Google also needs to polish the software part and the integration of the latter with the Pixel 6a. We can also hope that some of the work done on this version can benefit owners of Pixel 6 and 6 Pro. One thing is certain, this sensor will be particularly scrutinized when the smartphone is released, scheduled for the end of July.
