Capacitor vs Cordova

We are starting a new ionic project. I came to understand that ionic is now recommending capacitor instead of cordova to build application.

My application has the requirement of touch id, face id and native storage. I can see these libraries readily available in cordova.

If i choose capacitor, do we have capacitor plugins correspondingly?. Since capacitor is pretty new, we are concerned about using it for our application. Can i proceed with capacitor or cordova ?

You can always use Cordova plugins with Capacitor if there are no Capacitor-specific ones for what you need.
