Following the release of the iPhone X, face unlock has become a popular feature Android manufacturers include in their devices. Although, only a few ones like the Mi 8 Explorer Edition and the OPPO Find X offer the same level of security as the iPhone X.
HMD Global will be following the footsteps of other manufacturers by rolling out the feature to a number of its phones via an update according to a new report.
@deepalakshmii Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 7 plus and the new Nokia 6, as well as the Nokia 8 will get face unlock as an OTA update in the coming months

The info comes from a Twitter response to a user asking if the face unlock update is available for the Nokia 8. The official Nokia Mobile account replied that it would get the update in the coming months along with other devices. These other devices are the Nokia 8 Sirocco, the Nokia 7 Plus, and the Nokia 6.1.
If you own any of the aforementioned devices, you may want to look forward to the update when it starts rolling out. However, you shouldn’t forget that the fingerprint scanner on these devices offers a higher level of security than face unlock.
With this announcement, we expect more Nokia phones will also get the feature soon.
