Google says the slow fingerprint scanning on its flagship Pixel 6 is the result of ‘enhanced security algorithms.’
The Pixel 6 is Google’s latest version of its flagship line of phones and features the company’s Tensor system on a chip (SoC). The new phone offers performance on par with the fastest Android phones, but the speed of the in-screen fingerprint sensor is not one of the phone’s highlights. Users have reported slower than normal speed, compared to other high-end devices.
According to Google, the slower speed is the result of enhanced security.
