One of the original features of the recently introduced smartphone OnePlus 5T is Face Unlock, which allows you to unlock the device with the help of face recognition of the user. Later this way of biometric identification will be transferred to the previous model – OnePlus 5. This information was sounded on Twitter by the co-founder of OnePlus Karl Pei.
Carl Pei tweeted”
Due to popular demand, Face Unlock is coming for the OnePlus 5. Thanks for the feedback, and merry Christmas! 🎅🎄🎁”
Pei noted that this function is praised by “mass demand”. Therefore, it was decided to implement it in the smartphone OnePlus 5. He did not share any information about the timing of the release of a software update for this model, which will add support for Face Unlock.
We add, in the smartphone OnePlus 5 is available the function of biometric identification with the help of a fingerprint scanner, integrated into the Home button. The function of Face Unlock can not be called extremely safe, as it sometimes works on other people’s faces. Therefore, in OnePlus 5T it is used only to unlock the device, not to confirm payments or other important transactions.
