After, has finally received its anticipated Android 8.0 Oreo-based OxygenOS 5.0 update. According to the changelog, the optimizations are made to the Shelf feature which works same as the Google Now on Pixel launcher.

A camera is used for providing images to the facial recognition software where the display operates in a first mode for displaying images to a user and in a second mode for illuminating the user's face for detection by the camera. The feature uses over 100 identifiers to uniquely identify your face, and while it isn't touted to be as secure as the fingerprint sensor at the back, it doesn't get fooled by a photograph. There is a Parallel Apps feature to let users have multiple accounts for apps such as Facebook, WhatsApp, and LinkedIn. In addition to the OxygenOS 5.0, the OnePlus 5 will also be updated with the Android security patch for the month of December.

SensibleVision CEO and co-founder George Brostoff in an email statement to a blog, My Smart Price claims that the OnePlus might have taken the liberty of using his company's facial recognition technology for the OnePlus 5T, but he is ready to resolve the issue amicably by holding a private one-on-one meeting without legal experts. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0, NFC, GPS / A-GPS and USB Type-C (v2.0).

That said, there was no word on whether Face Unlock would be rolled out to older OnePlus smartphones like the OnePlus 3 or 3T. If the OTA update has arrived, it should reflect on their phones.
