Will OnePlus 5 also gets Face Unlock?

Beijing: One of the most-coveted features of OnePlus latest flagship — “Face Unlock” will be rolled out to the slightly older OnePlus 5 via a software update, according to the co-founder of the company.

“Due to popular demand, โ€˜Face Unlock’ feature is coming for the OnePlus 5. Thanks for the feedback,” Carl Pei, co-founder, OnePlus, tweeted from his official @getpeid handle recently.

However, he did not mention a timeline for the release or whether there will be any functional differences.

Earlier in June, the Chinese handset maker had launched OnePlus 5 in two variants — 6GB RAM and 64GB internal memory and 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage in India for Rs 32,999 and Rs 37,999, respectively.

The device is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.
