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.
