Google is still looking to add face unlocking to the Pixel 6 Pro.

The fingerprint sensor seemed uninteresting to anyone who tried it. It was not equipped with a face to unlock feature either. Although marketing materials leaked before launch indicated that face unlock could at the very least be available to users of the Pixel 6 Pro, there was no evidence of it at launch. A report by 9to5Google (citing the source) claims that Google intends to add face unlock functionality to Pixel 6 Pro. Pixel 6 Pro and maybe even before when the following Pixel feature drop is expected to launch in June.

The most interesting aspect is that hardware-wise, both the Pixel 6 and the Pixel 6 Pro are identical in front-facing cameras. However, it appears that only the Pro will have face unlock. There’s no additional equipment for facial scanning, like Google’s Soli technology that was first introduced with the Pixel 4, nor is there an IR camera. Both models have somewhat different front-facing cameras, including that the Pixel 6 packs an 8MP camera while the Pixel 6 Pro packs an 11MP camera.

However, they’re both cameras with no other hardware. However, the report by 9to5Google clearly states that Google plans to introduce it exclusively to Pixel 6 Pro only.

The possibility is that Google works on face unlocking for at the very least, at least the Pixel 6 Pro is corroborated by XDA Recognized Developer Freak07, who noticed a new feature that is related to the feature within the Power HAL configuration file that is included in Android 12 QPR3 beta 1.1. Google’s internal codename to face unlocking for the Pixel 6 Pro seems to be “Tuscany,” and the company is trying to optimize the power consumption of its devices.

Also, 9to5Googlealso reports that Google has stopped support for face unlock on Pixel 6 Pro. Pixel 6 Pro right before launch, which means that it was in place and was working by the time. This is consistent with documents leaked to the media that we’ve had the chance to view, which indicates that the change was extremely last-minute. We’ve seen a few indications of it appearing on users’ devices, indicating that something humorous was going on with Google.

The in-display fingerprint scanner is the sole biometric authentication option on the Pixel 6 series, and it seems like it will remain similar to the standard Pixel 6.
