Last weekend, we told you that OnePlus 5 might get the Face Unlock feature with upcoming Android Oreo based beta update, however, it seems the company hasn’t added that feature with the Open Beta 1 update.
Also, as this is a beta build, you will have to flash it manually to your phone. Moreover, once you have flashed your phone with this Open Beta update, you won’t receive official OTAs anymore as far as your phone is running the beta build.
