OnePlus 5 Oreo Update Will Bring Face Unlock

One of the features the OnePlus 5T brings other than a new display is Face Unlock. This is an alternative biometric security to fingerprint scanning and one of the praised features of the phone due to its speed.

A couple of days ago it was reported that the feature will not be available on the OnePlus 5. However, fresh details say the device will get Face Unlock when it receives its Android 8.0 Oreo update.

The feature is already available on the Android 8.0 Beta 2 update for the device. One user who has gotten the beta update has been kind enough to share screenshots. At the lockscreen of the image shared, there is now a prompt that asks to use Face Unlock or enter password. One of the screenshots also shows that the beta update comes with October’s security patch.
