According to 9to5Google, Google will be adding a facial recognition system Android Q which is to debut later this year. The said facial recognition system will be on par with Apple Face ID and such development is to reduce the variation of facial recognition system on the market today from each manufacturers.
One of the developers from XDA discovered the relevant source code in the system which suggest Android Q will be able to support facial recognition hardware to offer greater stability. The face recognition could be used to login Google accounts and would offer more versatility, application wise.
As the new Android Q is expected to prevail on this coming Google I/O, it is unsure whether Google will bring this into official release note. But if it’s released, there will be greater security being implemented to a unified system instead of vast fragment system that varied across manufacturers.
