    A new feature that we have seen in Huawei and Honor devices, fingerprint scanner gestures, may also be making its way to the next Nexus lineup. A leaked image shows instructions for swiping down on the fingerprint scanner to check notifications. Nothing has been confirmed on this so take it with a grain of salt. I would love to see the feature on the Next Nexus however, swiping right might auto launch the camera and snap a picture, swiping up to open your favorite apps. If this does make its way to the next Nexus device it will be a stand out feature. Also did anyone else notice the new nav bar in the leaks?

    A neat trick that will add another input device without adding another actual button. This is a good thing.
