CONFIRMED: The 'Face Unlock' feature is coming to the OnePlus 5

OnePlus 5 Android Oreo update

Face Unlock comes preloaded on its OnePlus 5T. Gallery also updates with the addition of "Places" tab for viewing photos on a map.

"In an upcoming update, the phone will understand whether the subject is emitting light (a phone) versus reflecting (your actual face) by analyzing shadows and bright areas". The new face unlock feature is pretty fast and the company claims that it can unlock the smartphone in 0.3 seconds. The feature proved to be so successful and popular amongst the users that the company has finally made a decision to update the software on its predecessor, OnePlus 5, and introduce the feature of Face Unlock on the previous model as well.

Carl Pei, OnePlus co-founder, on Sunday tweets: "Due to popular demand, Face Unlock is coming for the OnePlus 5".

Christmas Eve fire in Marshfield
Crews from Abington, Whitman, Weymouth and Brockton responded after the fire broke out at the facility of Chestnut Street. Three young children are without Christmas presents and their home after a fire on Christmas Eve.

OnePlus 5 users can go to Settings on their phone, tap on about device, and check for System updates. The company had promised the stable update by early 2018, but the current rollout indicates a change in schedule by OnePlus as a Christmas eve surprise to users. Talking about the camera app, it got a new user interface, and the company added beauty mode for the Portrait Mode.

The Android 8.0 Oreo updates calculator with a new "history" feature. Moreover, an alarm calendar feature has been integrated into the Clock. Users will have to download this OxygenOS 5.0 with Android Oreo update and then install on their phones. The camera app has a new UI design along with optimizations for photo quality in the OxygenOS 5.0.

The OnePlus 5T was launched back in November, just 5 months after its older flagship sibling the OnePlus 5 was launched. Perhaps the OnePlus 3T will receive Face Unlock as well? Having said that, the latest Android version is yet to arrive on OnePlus 5T, which runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box. Let's hope that there are no issues with the update, unlike the Oreo-based update that OnePlus rolled out for its OP3 and OP3T users that had to be recalled later.
