This was revealed by Dennis Woodman, former Motorola CEO, in an interview with The Telegraph. He said, “The secret behind that is that it was supposed to be fingerprint recognition, and Apple bought the best supplier. So the second best supplier was the only one available to everyone else in the industry and they weren’t there yet.”

He added that adding a fingerprint scanner on the Nexus 6 “wouldn’t have made that big a difference” anyway.
