OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock Feature Coming to OnePlus 5

OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock Feature Coming to OnePlus 5”

Currently, OnePlus' Face Unlock feature is only available on their flagship OnePlus 5T.

Apart from Face Unlock feature, OnePlus has announced roll-out of OxygenOS 5.0, the company's first official Android Oreo OTA update for the OnePlus 5. However, OnePlus' use of its Face Unlock feature landed the company in somewhat lukewarm water, since a firm that specializes in facial recognition and biometric authentication technology accused OnePlus of infringing on at least one of its patents.

In a tweet that was posted on his personal Twitter account on December 24, Pei stated that the decision to add the Face Unlock feature on OnePlus 5 due to the popular demand by customers. It is not as secure as Apple's Face ID (which uses depth mapping and projection to verify your face), but it's quite faster and more flexible.

OnePlus 5 is getting facial unlock system introduced with the launch of OnePlus 5T in November.

"Face Unlock makes sure it is you". It brings features like an improved, customizable launcher, UI changes to the camera app, new beauty effects for Portrait Mode, battery optimizations, and a new "Places" tab in the gallery.

In addition to OnePlus' proprietary offerings, the OxygenOS 5.0 update for the OnePlus 5 brings all the core features.

Notable aspect of the Android Oreo is the Rescue Party feature, which helps device to recover from constant bootloops and also additional enhancement in security via Google Play Protect that checks suspicious activities and malwares in application. They include the new Picture-in-Picture mode, Autofill, notification channels, Smart text selection, among other things. Let's hope that there are no issues with the update, unlike the Oreo-based update that OnePlus rolled out for its OP3 and OP3T users that had to be recalled later. If the OTA update has arrived, it should reflect on their phones. The Calculator app on OxygenOS 5.0 will show the history of calculations.

The update is rolling out in stages and will broaden its reach in the coming days, says the Chinese smartphone brand.

It doesn't look like SensibleVision has filed a lawsuit against OnePlus yet, so we'll have to wait until that happens to get a better understanding of the company's claims.
