OnePlus 5T is one of the not so many smartphones that offer Face Unlock, a face recognition system that adds another layer of security. Although none of its previous products had the security feature, OnePlus promised that at least one of them will get Face Unlock in the not so distant future, the OnePlus 5.
Last week, the company’s co-founder Carl Pei said that by popular demand, Face Unlock will be implemented into the OnePlus 5 software as well. True to his promise, the Face Unlock feature is now being rolled out to OnePlus 5 units enrolled in the open beta program.
Aside from Face Unlock and the December security patch, OxygenOS open beta 3 brings several other improvements and many bug fixes. You can find below the full changelog as published by OnePlus:
- Added app shortcut on Launcher.
- Added Face Unlock;
- Optimizations for vibrations;
- Fixed connection issue of 5G Wi-Fi;
- General bug fixes and improvements;
- Updated Android security patch for December.
Keep in mind that the update is pushed out in waves, so it might take a few days to propagate to all OnePlus 5 devices. It’s also worth noting that the update weighs in at 106MB, not a large download at all.
