Pixel 8 Pro could feature an ultrasonic fingerprint sensor

Google is said to be testing a new Pixel phone with the model number G10, according to developer Kuba Wojciechowski. This is the modified Pixel 7 Pro that the company is testing, and it has a Qualcomm Ultrasonic fingerprint scanner.

This could be used in next year’s Pixel 8 Pro and should offer a faster unlocking experience compared to the Pixel 7 Pro which still uses an optical fingerprint scanner when other flagships from Samsung, vivo and iQOO have moved to ultrasonic.

The prototype has the same 6.7-inch (3120 x 1440 pixels) screen, but this is from BOE. This could go well with the new fingerprint sensor. This also reveals 155mm x 71mm height and width for the phone that is exactly the same as the Pixel 7 Pro.

The Pixel G10 model has a code name “gepard,” which is the German word for Cheetah, that is the code name for the Pixel 7 Pro. We should know more details about this device in the coming months.
