Google Pixel 4 could come with Face ID-like tech
« on: January 28, 2019, 06:39:50 AM »


Whether or not it will be named after a dessert like all of its forerunners, Android Q is surely right around the corner, seemingly aiming to bring a number of new features and options to the table you’re probably going to love, as well as some that look destined for controversy.

Upon doing additional digging into that recently leaked build of Google’s next big mobile OS version, the folks over at XDA Developers may have discovered arguably the juiciest feature so far rumored to be natively integrated into Android Q.

We’re talking about pre-loaded support for “secure facial recognition hardware”, which may not sound like a big deal if you’re not familiar with the trouble companies like Huawei or Xiaomi had to go through to implement Face ID-style authentication methods on their latest ultra-high-end devices.

If Google indeed plans to finally modernize the rudimentary default Trusted Face functionality on Android, we’re likely to see an onslaught of high-end phones offering better, safer, more reliable facial recognition solutions in the not-too-distant future.
