OnePlus 3, 3T get Face Unlock with Android Oreo update

By : |November 30, 2017 0

OnePlus 5T has a lot to boast about and tempt OnePlus’ fans to upgrade to the latest flagship. But if you can’t upgrade, worry not because you could still get some of those features. Wondering how? While the previous OnePlus iterations namely 3, 3T and 5 can’t get their bezels off like 5T but they can surely have 5T’s Face unlock feature. Yes, you read that right.

With the new Android Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.0 update, OnePlus 3 and 3T have received the face unlock ability, which means that same will hold true when OnePlus 5 starts getting Oreo update.

Notably, the feature works as flawlessly as it does in the latest flagship. To enable the face-unlock feature in the OnePlus 3 and 3T devices running on the Android Oreo operating system: Go to Settings and look for ‘Security & fingerprint’ option. Under ‘security and fingerprint’, there is another ‘Smart Unlock’ tab that will take you to five options including ‘Trusted face.’

While the feature works under most lighting conditions and is as swift as OnePlus 5T, it doesn’t take you to home screen after unlocking your phone which means you will have to swipe up from the lock screen to get there.

While OnePlus 3 and 3T have already got notifications for Android Oreo update, OnePlus 5 got its first Oreo beta on Monday, which you can grab directly from the company right now. As for the just-announced OnePlus 5T, it should get the update early next year.
