Is reliability important? Pixel 6 and 7 fingerprint scanner can be accelerated by front camera

August 22, 2022, 09:45

Google fails to implement the owner recognition functions in Pixel smartphones in any way: the Pixel 4 line suffered from bugs in the face scanner, and in the Pixel 6 it was completely turned off, replacing it with an extremely unsuccessful fingerprint scanner. The Pixel 7 series is already on the way, which by and large will be a minor upgrade of the “sixes”, and therefore Google is expected to at least fix “childhood sores” – primarily identification systems. But, judging by the new data from the publication 9to5Google, the richest corporation is again unable to cope with its own technologies.

It is reported that Google intends to resort to a very original method of unlocking smartphones. Instead of simply installing a high-quality and fast fingerprint scanner in the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro, the company is designing a special algorithm that will reduce the fingerprint recognition threshold (and therefore the response speed) if the front camera recognizes the owner. It is worth emphasizing that there is no talk of the return of Face Unlock: the front camera will only be an auxiliary system. True, this raises fair questions about the reliability of such a bundle, because it is not difficult to deceive a face recognition system, and a low demand for fingerprint matching can open the way for attackers.
