In the last month, OnePlus announced that due to the high demand the company would bring the facial recognition system to OnePlus 5. One week later, the promise was fulfilled through a release containing the feature, available to all OP5 enrolled in the beta program.
Carl Pei also mentioned that bringing the Face Unlock to OnePlus 3/3T was in the company’s plans, during an interview given to CNET. The new security feature probably will be added in the coming days, as usual, in a new beta release of OxygenOS.
When asked about the reason for bringing one of the OnePlus 5T major novelties to the previous models, the OnePlus Co-Founder simply stated:
“There’s no reason to withhold features that we can easily implement.”
There’s nothing that we can say other than praising the Chinese company for such a feat. It’s not every day that we see a manufacturer giving so much attention and support for old released models. Of course, this should be a standard for manufacturers, but it doesn’t happen often. For that reason, thumbs up for OnePlus.
