MWC 2017: Google’s budget Android One GM 6 series with fingerprint sensor launched

Search engine giant Google, in collaboration with General Mobile (GM), has launched the feature-rich Android One GM 6 series at the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 in Barcelona, Spain.
The highlight of the GM 6 is its security feature. It is the first-ever Android One series to house the fingerprint-sensor security. It is said to come with a response time of 0.2 second and a low false-rejection ratio. The GM 6’s bio-metric scanner is placed on the front-panel’s physical home button, unlike in the Google’s Pixel phone models, where it is found on the back, just below the camera module.

With the incorporation of the fingerprint sensor, GM 6 will have two layers of security — the other being the pattern/four digit pincode.
