OnePlus 5 Comes with Android 8.0 Oreo Update

OnePlus 5 Face Unlock

Android 8.0 update comes along OxygenOS 5.0 with a size of 1.5GB and it includes the December security patch along with a handful o new features. Perhaps the OnePlus 3T will receive Face Unlock as well? Well, even though there's no information on when the Face Unlock would make its way to the OnePlus 5, it's good to see OnePlus listening to its customers and deciding to include a feature which is now only available on the OnePlus 5T. Meanwhile, a stable Android Oreo update has been released for OnePlus 5.

For those unaware, OnePlus 5T comes with 16MP snapper having Sony IMX370 sensor and additional software that allows the device to have "face unlock" feature with a record 400ms speed. There is going to be a new beauty effect available if you are in Portrait Mode too.

OnePlus 5 owners have already had an exciting end to the year, since OnePlus started rolling out Android Oreo to the slightly older phone, so Face Unlock is another cherry on top. This is definitely good news to owners whose handsets just received the Android Oreo treatment in time for Christmas.

The update also brings optimisations for Shelf and one can upload a photo through Shot on OnePlus. In addition, the firmware contains a proprietary shell Oxygen OS, which makes the operation of the smartphone easier and more comfortable due to the minimalistic interface and a very large number of settings (however, the MIUI from Xiaomi they are still much larger). However, OnePlus' use of its Face Unlock feature landed the company in somewhat lukewarm water, since a firm that specializes in facial recognition and biometric authentication technology accused OnePlus of infringing on at least one of its patents.

After Apple introduced the FaceID with the iPhone X, the facial recognition suddenly became a thing.

Meanwhile, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, in a Tweet, has confirmed that OnePlus 5 will soon receive the Face Unlock feature, which is now available on the OnePlus 5T. OnePlus is also bundling the device with a special Star Wars themed cover.
