OnePlus 5 to Get Face Unlock Feature

OnePlus 5 Face Unlock

That said, there was no word on whether Face Unlock would be rolled out to older OnePlus smartphones like the OnePlus 3 or 3T. It is not fair for OnePlus 5 smartphone owners to be devoid of this particular feature. Also, there is a new design for Quick Settings panel and Lift up display as well as an "Adaptive model" screen calibration and system-level optimisations for Wi-Fi and Battery Saver. Gallery also updates with the addition of "Places" tab for viewing photos on a map.

OnePlus 5 owners have already had an exciting end to the year, since OnePlus started rolling out Android Oreo to the slightly older phone, so Face Unlock is another cherry on top.

The Face Unlock feature of OnePlus 5T received good feedback from reviewers and users across the globe.




The news was announced by OnePlus yesterday and the update should already be available for some users.

One of the underdogs was OnePlus 5T which came with a reasonable price tag with features that were beyond our expectations. There is also a Shot on OnePlus section, which is where you can upload your photos through. Furthermore, alarm calendar feature has also been updated in Clock. It is less secure, so the company is not offering it as a security option in Payment processing. We have basically told you all of the most important features coming in this update, but there are even more you will have to check out once you install the update.

Face Unlock has been tested to only take 0.5 seconds, and has been claimed to be swifter than Face ID on the iPhone X. It is however less secure than Apple's facial recognition technology, as it only uses the front facing camera instead of a group of sensors, hence the reason why Face Unlock isn't allowed to authenticate tasks such as purchases. And soon they will be able to, according to OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, who made the announcement on Twitter. Let us know in the comments what you think about the OnePlus 5 device and the new update to OxygenOS 5.
