OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock feature is coming to OnePlus 5

OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock feature is coming to OnePlus 5

"Face Unlock" is one of the key differentiators between the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T apart from the "near bezel-less" design along with the 18:9 aspect ratio on the 5T.

The OxygenOS 5.0 update has added Places tab inside Gallery to enable you to view photos on a map.

Soon after the debut of OnePlus 5T in late November 2017, the Android flagship was praised by critics and fans for offering face unlock feature for less than the half the cost of Apple's fancy and expensive iPhone X.

International Business Times India Edition has reached out to OnePlus for comments via email and we are yet to get the official response.

Based on some reports posted to reddit, this OnePlus 5 update may be the same sort of Nougat-Oreo mishmash that the OnePlus 3/3T was updated to. However, the new software update will be made available for global users within the next few days. 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 alarm calendar feature in the Clock app. The feature is definitely not foolproof but it has already proven to be the fastest face unlock system on a smartphone right now. The company also said during the launch that the face unlock feature is not as secure as finger print and have to depend on finger print scanner for payments.

It is to be noted that the OxygenOS 5.0 update has been pushed via OTA on an incremental basis.
