OnPlus 5T's 'face unlock' feature is coming to OnePlus 5

OnePlus 5 Comes with Android 8.0 Oreo Update

Popular Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has announced that it will extend the face recognition feature to their popular OnePlus 5 model. However, OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock feature is limited to software and will be available on a wider scale. It is not fair for OnePlus 5 smartphone owners to be devoid of this particular feature.

Then there is a new design for quick settings and lift up display. OnePlus will likely need to test its code with the (slightly) different hardware on the OnePlus 5 to find any differences or tweaks that need to be made, so we're likely looking at a few weeks or perhaps months before it rolls out. While OnePlus 5T comes incorporated with the face unlock feature, its sibling OnePlus 5 doesn't.

After a not-so-long wait by Android standards, the OnePlus 5 has started to receive the Android Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.0 OTA update. The default Camera app has received an uplift with a new UI design, optimisations for photo quality, and a beauty effect for the preloaded Portrait mode.

There is a new history feature for calculator, and the gallery has a new tab named "Places" that allows you to view photos on the map. There is also a Shot on OnePlus section, which is where you can upload your photos through.

Besides what was revealed in the forum, in a separate announcement, Carl Pei, OnePlus co-founder, revealed in a tweet that the OnePlus 5 would also get the OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock feature. Well, faster than Face ID on Apple's iPhone X. However, it's certainly not as secure as the Face ID, which is one of the reasons why it can not be used for payment authorization.

After Apple introduced the FaceID with the iPhone X, the facial recognition suddenly became a thing. While the biggest news of 2017 was related to the removal of Touch ID on iPhone X and the arrival of Face ID systems on this iPhone and upcoming devices by Apple. We also do not know if this feature will also come to older OnePlus devices as well.
