OnePlus confirms Face Unlock is coming soon to the OnePlus 3 and 3T
Great news for OnePlus users, as the Chinese handset maker has just confirmed two other of its smartphones will receive the Face Unlock feature via a software update. Although the OnePlus 5T was the first smartphone launched by the company to include this security feature, the OnePlus 5 got it as well.
Three weeks ago OnePlus announced that by popular demand, Face Unlock will be added to the OnePlus 5, and one week later delivered on that promise via an Open Beta update.
During an interview with CNET, OnePlus' co-founder Carl Pei confirmed the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T will be getting the Face Unlock feature as well. The facial recognition option will probably be added with another OxygenOS beta build in the coming days, so if you're already enrolled in the beta program, then you should be able to test it.
Referring to the Face Unlock feature coming to OnePlus 3 and 3T, Carl Pei said that “there's no reason to withhold features we can easily implement.”
OnePlus has been doing a great job supporting its portfolio of devices (both new and old) by delivering timely software updates and adding new features that are usually meant for premium smartphones.
