The feature proved to be so successful and popular amongst the users that the company has finally made a decision to update the software on its predecessor, OnePlus 5, and introduce the feature of Face Unlock on the previous model as well. That's especially true if you own the original OnePlus 5 smartphone-which came out all of five months before the OnePlus 5T and lacks the latter's Face Unlock feature.

Meanwhile, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, in a Tweet, has confirmed that OnePlus 5 will soon receive the Face Unlock feature, which is now available on the OnePlus 5T.

Pei has not mentioned when the feature will be rolled out to the device in his tweet, but it shouldn't be too far off once the final version of OxygenOS 5.0 is rolled out for the OnePlus 5.

It's not surprising that OnePlus is capable of bringing Face Unlock to OnePlus 5 via a software update.

OnePlus 5 gets OxygenOS 5.0 update with Android Oreo and here's how to install. It also adds beauty effect for Portrait mode. It is based on Android 8.0 Oreo and includes the Android security patch update for the month of December. There is a Parallel Apps feature to let users have multiple accounts for apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and LinkedIn. The camera app has a new UI design along with optimizations for photo quality in the OxygenOS 5.0. Also, there is a new design for Quick Settings panel and Lift up display as well as an "Adaptive model" screen calibration and system-level optimisations for Wi-Fi and Battery Saver. Apart from this, users will get all the major Android Oreo features including picture-in-picture mode, auto-fill feature, notification dots, smart text selections and more.

Though the Android Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.0 is an incremental update and is rolling out in batches, you can check its arrival on your OnePlus 5 manually.

At the time of launching the OnePlus 5T in November, OnePlus announced that it will bring Android 8.0 Oreo to OnePlus 5 sometime in early 2018. This is would ultimately help the company incline more buyers. Then again, the 5 doesn't have the 5T's sleeker-looking 18:9 display, and their dual-camera systems differ quite a bit too.
