    You may be wondering now that if things had gone so far, then why Motorola skipped the fingerprint sensor on the back of the display? Allegedly, the former CEO claims that the manufacturer of the fingerprint sensor had been bought by Apple just a few weeks before the device went for final scale mass manufacturing. This was a deterrent for Motorola as the fingerprint sensor manufacturer in question was the best manufacturer of these hardwares.

    Despite the leaks though, tech analysts at Gizbot still have a question left unanswered. If Google and Motorola had planned to integrate the sensor in the device, they would actually developed a software to make is usable. Remember that unlike Android M, Lollipop doesn't have native fingerprint support. The developer needs to tweak the software to make the fingerprint sensor usable.
