Latest OnePlus 3 and 3T update brings Face Unlock, new app shortcuts design, more
OnePlus promised to bring Face Unlock feature to both the OnePlus 3 and 3T smartphones and even did that via an open beta update that users could install if they wanted. However, the latest OxygenOS update makes the feature available to everyone owning either of the two OnePlus smartphones.

But Face Unlock is not the only new feature introduced in the latest OxygenOS 5.0.3 update for the OnePlus 3 and 3T. The Chinese company added the May security patch as well, along with improvements to Launcher, Gallery, File Manager and Weather apps.

Launcher
  • Refined Shelf UI design
  • New design for App shortcuts
  • Supported more options when long pressing an icon
Gallery
  • Places: a map view of photos by location
  • Supported sharing photos to Shot-On-OnePlus
  • Added "Recently Deleted" collection
File Manager
  • Added “Large files” category
Weather
  • Added new widget for Launcher
  • Improved the positioning accuracy
  • Adjust refresh interval for weather information update

OxygenOS 5.0.3 update is delivered OTA (over the air) in waves, which means it will reach a small number of OnePlus 3 and 3T owners in the first few days, but a broader rollout afterward will bring it to more users.

Got it yesterday. Face unlock works but not as fast as the 5 or newer. Still on Android 8.0.0 though.

Android 8.1 will arrive in June or July on 3/3T, as promised by Oneplus.

May I ask where you're from? Or what country you used with your VPN? I tried Germany, Canada and India with my VPN app, as these usually received the update among the first, but no such luck this time... Thanks in advance.

Oxygen updater notified me about the update. But if you're on 3T, I think it will take some time. I'm on OP3

Good to see OnePlus still supporting the 3/3T. I was a little concerned after they dropped support for the OnePlus 2 so abruptly.
