In-display fingerprint sensors are becoming more common on phones these days, so it doesn’t really come as a surprise to learn that the upcoming Google Pixel 6 could be adopting the feature as well.

This is according to a series of screenshots shared on Twitter by Android’s Hiroshi Lockheimer. The tweet was later deleted, but not before screenshots were captured and retweeted by XDA’s Mishaal Rahman. The screenshots show what appears to be the lockscreen of the Pixel 6 along with a small icon with a fingerprint design.

According to Lockheimer’s tweet, he was just showing off wallpapers, but maybe he was secretly teasing us. Also, as Rahman points out, the screenshot shows the phone connected to Verizon’s 5G network, indicating that the Pixel 6 could have support for sub-6GHz 5G connectivity.

That being said, we suppose an in-display sensor was kind of obvious. The renders of the phone that Google had previously shared did not seem to give any indication of an external sensor, but this screenshot seemingly proves it. Google still hasn’t mentioned a date of when the phone will be launched, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled.
