OneOlus 5 gets Face Unlock feature via OxygenOS open beta 3

OneOlus 5 gets Face Unlock feature via OxygenOS open beta 3

After releasing Open Beta build with Face Unlock feature, for OnePlus 5, the company will work on any "remaining kinks" based on user's feedbacks.

The response has been largely affirmative, with most users eager to get Face Unlock on board the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, in a forum post on Thursday, detailed how the Face Unlock feature was a much requested one by OnePlus 5 users.

Red Dead Redemption 2 Release Date May Have Been Leaked
Using this logic, it seems possible that Red Dead Redemption 2's release date could be June 8 or certainly right around that time. Granted it was off by a few days at the time, but had the correct time frame according to popular gaming forum ResetEra .

Now, it looks like the company might be looking at bringing the feature to OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T smartphones too. Rolling out as an incremental over-the-air (OTA) update, the new version brings assistive lighting for the preloaded Face Unlock feature and includes various performance improvements and fixes, as well as the December Android security patch. In addition to this feature, this third Open Beta for the OnePlus 5 adds an app shortcut for the Recorder app on the phone's launcher. Once enabled, the new option lights up the screen to make your face visible to the front camera of the OnePlus 5T. Following this, OnePlus will push the official release of the Face Unlock to all OnePlus 5 units. OnePlus 5T is a mid-cycle upgrade to OnePlus 5, which was launched by the company in June. However, it is important to understand that the feature designed by OnePlus is not as secure as Apple's Face ID as it doesn't use techniques like depth mapping and laser projection that the latter uses to provide a safer experience. The OnePlus 5T is typically unable to recognize me, so I tend to use the fingerprint sensor or PIN instead in these conditions.

The final Android Oreo release for the OnePlus 5 is due in early 2018. And now, the new tweak is seemingly created to make that compelling feature better than before. Also, it enabled users to upload their photos directly to Shot on OnePlus.
