Pixel 6a early test shows faster fingerprint scanner than flagship Pixel 6
We are still a month away from the official launch of the Pixel 6a, Google’s upcoming budget phone, and while the phone is still not even out yet, Malaysian YouTuber Fazli Halim already has an early review out. We have no idea how he has gotten a hold of the phone so early, but even on this pre-release software, we can see that the under-display fingerprint scanner on the Pixel 6a is much faster than the Pixel 6 Pro.
Previously, Google officially acknowledged the fingerprint issue and blamed it on the “enhanced security algorithms” in the Pixel 6 series.
The hands-on video also goes over the camera on the Pixel 6a and from the few photo samples, it seems that the Pixel 6a delivers very similar colors to the pricier Pixel 6 Pro, but the amount of resolved detail is not quite as high.
