Android 12 May Bring Face-Based Auto-Rotate Feature

Android 12 double-tap feature would include the ability to adjust the sensitivity to only recognize 'firm' taps

Google is reportedly planning to roll out a feature for its Pixel smartphones in the Android 12 that will automatically rotate the display based on a user’s face. The face-based version of Auto-Rotate to Pixel phones will use the front-facing camera to check if anyone is looking at the screen. If it detects that someone is indeed looking at the screen then it will try to determine in which way their head is turned, reports 9to5Google.

It is possible that this face-based version of Auto-Rotate could launch as a broader Android 12 feature, but for now, it will be exclusively for Pixel phones. Android 12’s developer preview release is expected to be released on February 19, while its public release is expected in early September.
