We have no idea how Google will take advantage of the Pixel’s new Pixel 2 fingerprint sensor to unlock your phone or perform a variety of other tasks, but it’s definitely something we’re looking forward to.
Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 Plus owners will have the option to toggle the fingerprint sensor off during the pre-order process.
This means if you buy a Pixel 2, you can opt to not enable it and it won’t work on your phone.
You’ll also need to make sure you’re signed into your Google account.
Pixel owners can opt out of fingerprint sensors in their phones from the settings menu, and the fingerprint sensors won’t be enabled on any Pixel 2s.
As you can see above, you’ll also be able to disable the fingerprint reader in your phone if you want to disable it entirely.
Google has also announced a handful of Pixel 2 accessories, and we’ll have more info on those in the coming days.
The company is also adding a number of new Pixel devices, including a new $349 wireless speaker, a $150 case, and a $50 battery case.
Pixel devices and accessories will be available starting October 2.
