Google worked on face unlock for the Pixel 6 duo, but it missed the deadline

Google flip-flopped on the face unlock/fingerprint reader debate, but seemingly settled on having a physical fingerprint reader. Then Pixel 6 and 6 Pro leaks promised the return of face unlocking, only for the official unveiling to make no mention of it. That may have been a last minute change.

XDA Recognized Developer Freak07 spotted some relevant source code in the Pixel 6 series kernel. Back in July there was a patch that reduced power usage during face unlocking, a feature code named “Tuscany”.
