Leak shows new fingerprint reader gesture for upcoming Nexus handsets
The leak also revealed that the navigation buttons will be refreshed with colors added to some of the symbols. Also of interest is the blue-colored phone used in the screenshot to demonstrate the new gesture. This is purportedly the 'Electric Blue' color that will be available on both new Nexus models.
Unless you've been playing Pokemon Go for the last month, and pissing off a grumpy man in New Jersey by constantly knocking on his door, you're probably familiar with the expected new Nexus handsets. Both are reportedly to be made by HTC with a plastic 5.2-inch model code named Sailfish, and a flagship quality 5.5-inch metal-clad unit code named Marlin. Both phones will have a rear-facing fingerprint scanner which should make it a snap to swipe down and check your notifications. A toggle switch allows you to disable this feature.
