Google nixed the fingerprint scanner on the Nexus 6

On one of the earliest rumor articles regarding the recently launched Google Nexus 6, a number of things were predicted that have been realized by Motorola (the maker of the phone, if you didn’t know) – this includes the gigantic 5.9-inch screen, the codename “Shamu” (the whale), the November release, and that it would come with what is now Android 5.0 Lollipop.

That said, there might already be a new update soon, coming to Nexus devices first of course.
