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

That said, we do appreciate some of the little tricks OnePlus builds into the analysis to prevent easy spoofing of Face Unlock, which the company teased in a November forum post. Adaptive model calibrations for the screen are included in this update as well as a new design for the Quick Settings and Lift up display section. Well, even though there's no information on when the Face Unlock would make its way to the OnePlus 5, it's good to see OnePlus listening to its customers and deciding to include a feature which is now only available on the OnePlus 5T. Unlike Face ID on the iPhone X, the 5T's Face Unlock only uses a regular selfie camera, instead of a fancy infrared depth-mapping camera. Meanwhile, a stable Android Oreo update has been released for OnePlus 5. There is going to be a new beauty effect available if you are in Portrait Mode too. The Oxygen launcher will also be updated with a new user-interface as well.

Separately, Carl Pei, Co-Founder OnePlus, in a tweet on Saturday that the OnePlus 5 would also get the OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock feature, one that had at launch been exclusive to the newer phone. Whether or not OnePlus takes SensibleVision up on their offer remains to be seen as the company has yet to comment on the matter. 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. 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 are dedicated to constantly optimizing Face Unlock, much like we do with OxygenOS as a whole, and this is but one example".
