OnePlus 5 Getting Face Unlock Security Feature Due To 'Popular Demand'

SensibleVision illumination patent Face Unlock confirmed for OnePlus 5

After the installation, your OnePlus 5 device will be updated to Android Oreo 8.0, which is the latest Android platform. This means that your OnePlus 5 would receive the new update sometime in the coming days.

Last month it was speculated that OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock feature could be coming to its predecessor, the OnePlus 5, in a future update.

Over the weekend, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei took to Twitter to announce to the company's fans that the OnePlus 5 is getting the Face Unlock feature OnePlus introduced with the OnePlus 5T.

Pei has not mentioned when the feature will be rolled out to the device in his tweet, but it shouldn't be too far off once the final version of OxygenOS 5.0 is rolled out for the OnePlus 5. The user interface of the camera has been refreshed with a new design with enhancements to photo.




The OxygenOS 5.0 update has added Places tab inside Gallery to enable you to view photos on a map. There were several surprises in the form of the Essential phone and how can we forget the OnePlus company for providing us with reasonable phones which features equivalent to that of high-end phones. The update additionally comes bundled with the December Android security patch. There is a Parallel Apps feature to let users have multiple accounts for apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and LinkedIn. Users would also observe a history feature in the Calculator app and an alarm calendar feature in the Clock app. 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.

OnePlus' facial recognition doesn't use 3D mapping of face but instead relies on existing smartphone sensors and front-camera. Users will have to download this OxygenOS 5.0 with Android Oreo update and then install on their phones.

One of the underdogs was OnePlus 5T which came with a reasonable price tag with features that were beyond our expectations.

Users can check for the latest update by going to Settings System updates.
