The Google Pixel 6 may feature the ultra-wideband (UWB) technology, according to new information from 9to5Google and XDA Developers’ Mishaal Rahman.
I’ve just been informed that Google is testing support for Android 12’s Ultra-wideband (UWB) API on “raven”, one of the code-names that could belong to the GS101-powered next-gen Pixels.

Google added APIs to support UWB sensors in January. Android 12 code suggests only system apps will be able to access UWB features. No current Nest product offers the UWB tech, so it’s not clear how the new smartphones would use the tech. There is no evidence that the company is working on a smart tracker.
