Confirmed: OnePlus 5 will soon get OnePlus 5T's Face Unlock feature
According to OnePlus' co-founder Carl Pei, “by popular demand, Face Unlock is coming to the OnePlus 5.” It's yet unclear when the new feature will be enabled, but it shouldn't take too long for OnePlus to make the necessary changes.
In the same piece of news, OnePlus 5 has just received the highly-anticipated OxygenOS 5.0 update based on Android 8.0 Oreo. Still, the official changelog doesn't mention anything related to the Face Unlock feature.
Even so, it's nice to know that OnePlus is taking customer feedback into consideration and adds new features and improvements when they are asked by a large number of OnePlus fans.
