A new leak points to the Google Pixel 7a getting face unlock capabilities.
This would presumably be in line with the Pixel 7’s camera-based solution.
The Google Pixel 7 series landed with face unlock support, marking the first time since the Pixel 4 range that a Pixel phone had face unlock capabilities. However, this feature used the selfie camera rather than more secure, dedicated hardware.
Now, frequent tipster Snoopy Tech has posted a screenshot on Twitter that seems to confirm the presence of face unlock on the Google Pixel 7a. Check out the low-resolution image below.
