Pixel 7 Front Camera Could Lay The Foundation For A New Security Feature

Developer Kuba Wojciechowski recently published a series of tweets revealing details they allegedly found in Google’s code, and the most interesting tidbit is the alleged use of an 11MP Samsung 3J1 sensor for the front-facing camera of both Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro models. Last year, only the Pixel 6 Pro got such a camera, while the Pixel 6 got stock with an 8MP sensor. Not only does this enable 4K video recording for selfies, but it also sets the stage for a future Face Unlock feature.

The Samsung 3J1 features a Dual-Pixel Autofocus (DPAF) that is commonly used for portrait modes or bokeh effects. It can, however, also be used for more accurate and secure Face Unlock, something the Pixel phones have been lacking for a few generations now. The Pixel 6 Pro also had DPAF, but making it available for both Pro and non-Pro models this year suggests that Google will be making that security feature a standard. Different Android manufacturers have their own Face Unlock implementations, but not many have the same reliability as Apple’s Face ID.

The tipster also claims that the upcoming Pixel tablet will use the same 8MP Sony IMX355 sensor for both the front and back cameras. This sensor has been on the market since the Pixel 3 in 2018 and is sadly nothing to write home about in this day and age. This only reinforces the expectation of the Pixel tablet as more of a mobile smart display than a tablet that can compete with Apple’s and Samsung’s best.
