If we’re to believe those new rumors about Android Silver, the Nexus series of devices may soon be going the way of the dodo, but with that transition not expected until sometime next year, one more Nexus smartphone could still be in the cards. We’ve heard a few stabs at what to expect from the Nexus 6, from a pared-down version of the LG G3, to something from Lenovo, and even wondered about a curved-screen handset. Today’s rumor returns to the idea of a G3-based One, and in particular focuses on the idea of the phone arriving with a fingerprint scanner.

While we haven’t talked much about it recently, early G3 rumors often referenced this idea of a fingerprint scanner. According to this source, Google’s been talking to component suppliers directly, so it’s conceivable that even if the G3 itself doesn’t arrive with a scanner, the Nexus 6 might get one – after all, we’re used to small hardware changes between these LG phones and their Nexus equivalents.

We also get into some discussion on screen size and resolution, but without specific attribution to this source, it sounds a bit too much like speculation for our tastes. But that uncertainty aside, this fingerprint idea for a Nexus phone is pretty interesting on its own. Could we see Google really integrate it with its existing services? Maybe instead of Google’s two-factor authentication sending a passcode via SMS to your phone, we could see it evolve to also take advantage of biometric tech?
