There were rumors about bringing the Face Unlock feature on the OnePlus 5 device with the stable Oreo update, however we are unable to figure out this new Face Unlock feature on the second Oreo Beta update.

Although the OnePlus 5T was launched last month and is the current flagship smartphone in the Chinese company's line-up, OnePlus hasn't forgotten about buyers of its previous smartphones.
