OnePlus 3/3T Start Receiving OxygenOS 5.0.3 Update with Face Unlock

Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus launched their latest flagship OnePlus 6, but they didn’t forget the older ones. OnePlus has released OxygenOS 5.0.3 Update with Face Unlock for the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T. Previously, the OnePlus 3 series got the Android 8.0 Oreo update in November last year. The new update brings the Face unlock feature, previously rolled out on the OnePlus 5, in the OxygenOS 5.0 update in January. The feature has been in beta testing for quite some time, and users already know what they are getting.

OnePlus Co-founder Carl Pei, who is very active on social media about updates, has already confirmed that the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T will be getting this feature, which was first designed for the OnePlus 5T which is featured in the latest OnePlus 6 as well. The technology entirely runs on software, and there is no need for additional hardware like the Apple iPhone X.

The update will come in OTA form, and users can expect an “incremental” rollout, which means it will be available in batches. Besides Face Unlock, OxygenOS 5.0.3 improves File Manager, weather, launcher, and gallery apps. There are apps shortcuts, pop-up options, and refined shelf UI for easy navigation. The Gallery now shows a map view of the photos based on location and a new option to share photos with Shot-On-OnePlus. The weather accuracy has improved with the refresh interval option while the File Manager is refined with new categories like large files and deleted the folder for better discovery.

Users can check the update by going to Settings > System Updates. They can also download the new OxygenOS ROM from the OnePlus form and flash it according to the given instructions. To prevent any data mishap, we advise users to back up their data and at least keep a minimum 50% charge.
