    Hi everyone,

    Why did we bring Face Unlock to the OnePlus 5T? We wanted to give our users a quick and convenient alternative to the fingerprint scanner. And it's become a fan-favorite of the entire OnePlus community. Face Unlock's appeal was broader than expected! Calls to bring Face Unlock to other OnePlus devices prove this.

    We've heard your calls to bring Face Unlock to other devices. We’re happy to share that Face Unlock is coming to the OnePlus 5. Since this news got out, we’ve received a ton of comments and questions. So, we would like to take a minute to tell you a little more about our plan to bring Face Unlock to the OnePlus 5.

    Face Unlock will first make its way to the OnePlus 5 through an upcoming Open Beta build. Consider it an early test run. We'll work out any remaining kinks and take time to work through your feedback. Then we will release Face Unlock to OnePlus 5 users worldwide in an Official Release build.

    You all inspired us to bring Face Unlock to the OnePlus 5. When you share your thoughts and feedback, you impact how we build and maintain our devices. In the spirit of building together, we’d also like to ask our OnePlus 3 and 3T users: Do you want Face Unlock too?

    Let us know in the comments below with your thoughts. Thanks for your feedback. We can’t wait until you get your eyes on Face Unlock. ;)

    Never Settle.

    A thread with nearly 50 pages might give you a hint: https://forums.oneplus.net/threads/face-unlock-voting-for-3-3t-users.727864/

    Just out of curiosity: Are you getting ready for legal action against OnePlus?

    The face illuminating feature, the tech SensibleVision claims to have patented, was implemented on 4.7.6.

    Hey @Carl

    Thanks for the update, I'm sure OP5 users will be happy - well, we read it on your Twitter account.

    It works really well on the 5T, perhaps the biggest surprise of the phone for me. You guys are going to love it.

    OP3/3T users speak now - not in a "yes" thread. ;)

    Yayyy, it's coming soon, now OnePlus 5 will be better than 5T, front facing FP plus Face unlock :p

    Why leave OP3/3T users behind, make it available for OP3/3T too!

    I just don't get why do people need both. Sure, Face Unlock works quite well, but I wouldn't use it if I had a front facing FPS.

    Lol, I was just being Sarcastic, it's a must have feature for some OnePlus 5 users, not sure why when you can simply touch the FP to unlock instead of tapping / clicking a button and then smiling :rolleyes:

    Personal opinion: No Go ahead.
    Coz i don't want the mobile to unlock when i just want to see the time or dismiss some notifications. So the face unlock now has an option if i want to disable direct unlock.

    An option to disable the vibration while unlocking the device through fingerprint scanner. That's what i really want. Got it.

    Yes, I would be happy if I get the face unlock feature in my OnePlus 3T. I hope you bring it, thank you.

    For me ,it's a NO.
    I don't wanna be a isheep for now.
    But if you can do then do it , so we can survive the pile of useless/ whinning threads asking for it.

    And my vote goes to under screen FP scanner:cool:.
    In future rather than face id

    So don't use it....it is the same as you accidentally touch the scanner and oh no it's unlocked by touching

    Definitely a yes for face unlock on the 3/3T, it's a nifty little feature to have given the hype.
