    I don't know about the technology more but it's similar to what iPhone X has

    second thing they their self said it's little less secure than FP
    ps : I would not trust this in NFC payment or any other thing, moreover if Apple's face id (after this much of trust they removed fp) can be fooled then it may be easy in case of 5t

    They are not using dot projection technology that is for sure. Then it must be regular facial recognition already available via Smart lock which is way less secure. It can be fooled with just even a photo of your face.

    As they have said, Face recognition will only work to unlock phone but will to be able to be used to buy stuff. It is mainly there to make it convenient to unlock phone when it is on the table.

    It's nothing like the iPhone X, it uses a 3d scanner to map your face. 5T uses the front camera to map 100 points on your face in 2d and yeah it's not secure at all.

    Far from it. Face ID relies on special hardware that senses your face's 3D configuration. Face Unlock is just face recognition like Trusted Face. I still believe it is Trusted Face but without the need to swipe to unlock.

    Are we expecting the same feature to be implemented on OP5, where we won't have to swipe up using the face recognition ??

    You don't need it as you have a front facing fingerprint sensor ffs

    if someone can use my photo to unlock the phone, what is the point to using this function. it is no secure at all.
    why oneplus still put this on the phone ? it is they want create user database for some reasons ?

    Its using just the front cam. Not very secure, therefore payments, etc will continue to rely on fingerprints as identification.

    Nothing special.Its the same facial recognition present in smart lock. Just front camera and a bit modification of lockscreen so you wont have to swipe up when phone recognises you.

    - it uses front camera to take a photo of your face
    - the photo is sent to FBI
    - An FBI employee receives the photo
    - He hands over the photo to a sketch artist
    - sketch artist draws the image in a large canvas
    - The canvas image is scanned and emailed in the Prime minister's office in your country.
    - A secretary in the office receives the scanned photo
    - She sends the photo to the governor of your state
    - The state governor's secretary sends the photo to every police stations in your state
    - The police officers compare the sketch to their database of faces.
    - If a match found, the police officer verifies if there is any criminal record against you.
    - if no criminal records found, the police officer sends a approval letter to the governor's office
    - Governor's office forwards the approval letter to prime minister's office.
    - Prime minister's office forwards the same back to FBI.
    - FBI forwards the approval to Chinese embassy.
    - Chinese embassy forwards the approval to Oneplus
    - Oneplus reviews the approval and needs 2 witnesses from Oppo and Vivo to sign the approval paper.
    - Finally they unlocks the phone via remote access.

    it's nothing u can even activate it on your current 1+5 under security. The only difference is you have to swipe up to get to the home screen. i've tested it and it is working very well... very fast even in low light.

    they might have done some tweaks on the OP 5T to it, but I am sure we will see videos on YT of ppl unlocking it with a brick, a piece or rope, a dirty sock and a rabid raccoon in a few days.
