New OnePlus 3/3T OxygenOS beta build brings Face Unlock

OnePlus 3 & 3T confirmed to get Face Unlock feature in an upcoming software update

The Open Beta version 30 which comes with the features isn't now available through the company's official website.

Shortly after OnePlus confirmed the OnePlus 3/3T will be getting Face Unlock support, a new OxygenOS beta build has been made available for the devices, and it contains exactly that. It also includes bug fixes and optimisations. The company is rolling out updates to those with Open Beta builds of Oxygen OS. Other security methods include screen lock via password or pattern. Further, the new OxygenOS Open Beta versions come preloaded with OnePlus Switch app to enable backup and restore. Both the new Open Beta versions have optimisations for logic managing high-power consumption applications as well as a more intelligent background application management solution. Other apps such as Clipboard, File Manager, and Dialer have also been improved with some new features. The auto folder tagging feature automatically names new folders when the user adds apps that are similar.

House Republicans questioned Apple for slowing older iPhones
When Apple admitted it has for years been secretly slowing down old iPhone batteries, lots of customers were understandably annoyed.

Considering the fact that the OnePlus 3 and 3T do not have the same camera systems as the OnePlus 5 and 5T, it'll certainly be interesting to see how the Face Unlock feature will perform on these older flagship phones. Once again, you will see the new Launcher on these devices and updated apps.

Despite some of the new features and advancements, the new OxygenOS Open Beta versions are still meant for testing purposes as they include some known issues as well as various hidden bugs.

The latest beta update also brings OnePlus Switch application, which makes it easier for OnePlus users to transfer phone's data from one OnePlus device to another. Therefore, you should proceed only if you are ready to accept the potential risks just for sake of testing the new features.

If you do not feel like downloading it OTA, the update should also appear on the OnePlus support website at some point in the near future. You can download the build for your OnePlus device via the brand's site.
