Pixel 6 Pro was supposed to come out with Face Unlock, then Google changed its mind

The Face Unlock on the Pixel 6 Pro (here our review) is one of the most debated topics of recent months. It comes, maybe yes, no, but there are hopes.

Now the 9to5Google site has found that Google had effectively intention to launch the device with the face unlockthen change your mind at the last minute. According to the site, in fact, the Pixel 6 Prowhich is equipped with an 11.1MP front-facing camera with an “ultrawide” field of view of 94 degrees (compared to 8MP and 84 degrees on the Pixel 6), despite the absence of dedicated hardware it would have made it possible to guarantee reliable recognition

But in what way? The merit would be of Tensor chip, which would allow the recognition of faces quickly and punctually even without IR cameras, point projectors or other. Really Google had distributed del advertising material which leveraged functionality, as seen in an announcement by a German distributor (even if he incorrectly referred to the Pixel 6) and in an advertisement for a British telephone operator. Then nothing more was known, but as we have seen it seems that Google has no intention of definitively abandoning the road, at least for next Pixels.
