OnePlus 5 officially gets Face Unlock feature, OnePlus 5T users can now test Android Oreo under Beta

OnePlus has been improving its record by delivering timely updates and providing more features to its users. The company recently rolled out the stable version of the latest Android Oreo for its last year's flagship devices OnePlus 3 and 3T. After the successful rollout, OnePlus is now working on bringing the Android Oreo update to its current flagships which include OnePlus 5 and 5T.

OnePlus has finally started rolling out the first Open Beta update for the OnePlus 5T. The ROM weighs in at around 1.61 GB and brings Android Oreo along with a few other additional features to the table. As the ROM is in Beta, we would not recommend users to install it on their daily driver as it is not stable and might have a few bugs here and there. However, people who are really excited about Android Oreo and cannot wait for the stable version can head over to to install the Open Beta.

OnePlus 5 will soon be getting Android Oreo with Face Unlock feature as a stable build. It will be interesting to see how well will the Face Unlock feature perform on the OnePlus 5
