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

Carl Pei, CEO of OnePlus, also confirmed the Face Unlock feature introduced with the OnePlus 5T will be soon available on OnePlus 5 smartphone.

Unlocking your smartphone with your face is the next big thing. However, the good news is that OnePlus has now confirmed that the Face Unlock feature will indeed be rolled out to the OnePlus 5.

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. "Thanks for the feedback, and merry Christmas", Pei tweeted. So, the company has made a decision to bring this feature to OnePlus 5 as well after the huge demand by OnePlus 5 users. OnePlus 5 owners, time to be happy, because OnePlus just gave you a very timely Christmas present.

OnePlus 5T was the company's first device with Face Unlock feature.

Its Official, Apple Admits To Slowing Down Older Iphones
If your old iPhone is slowing down and you think Apple's throttling could be to blame, you don't need to phone a lawyer. A second lawsuit against Apple, as reported by Chicago Sun Times , has also come into the limelight.

After two stages of Beta, OnePlus released the final version of Android 8.0 Oreo, i.e., Oxygen OS 5.0 to all its OnePlus 5 users who were waiting for the software. The feature is nowhere to be found in the changelog.

"Face Unlock makes sure it is you".

Face Unlock has been tested to only take 0.5 seconds, and has been claimed to be swifter than Face ID on the iPhone X. It is however less secure than Apple's facial recognition technology, as it only uses the front facing camera instead of a group of sensors, hence the reason why Face Unlock isn't allowed to authenticate tasks such as purchases. The update for system adds following new capabilities. Embedded with dual camera and USB Type-C charging for fast charging accompanied by a fast fingerprint scanner, the phone is around $600 which is way beyond the price mark of Pixel 2 and Samsung S8 or iPhone 8. 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.

Due to popular demand, Face Unlock is coming for the OnePlus 5.
