Beijing, Dec 26, 2017: One of the most coveted features of OnePlus latest flagship — “Face Unlock” will be rolled out to the slightly older OnePlus 5 via a software update, according to the co-founder of the company.

“Due to popular demand, ‘Face Unlock’ feature is coming for the OnePlus 5. Thanks for the feedback,” Carl Pei, co-founder, OnePlus, tweeted from his official @getpeid handle recently.

However, he did not mention a timeline for the release or whether there will be any functional differences.

Earlier in June, the Chinese handset maker had launched OnePlus 5 in two variants — 6GB RAM and 64GB internal memory and 8GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage in India for Rs 32,999 and Rs 37,999, respectively.

The OnePlus 5 is powered by octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.

The smartphone features 16MP+20MP rear dual-camera combination and a 16MP front shooter. The company had claimed that OnePlus 5 has the highest smartphone camera resolution yet.

The device is fueled by 3,300mAh battery that lasts up to 20 per cent longer than its predecessor OnePlus 3T.

There is also a fingerprint scanner which doubled up as a home button and can unlock the phone in 0.2 seconds. (IANS)

OnePlus among top 5 premium Android OEMs in Q2 2018: Report.

Driven by strong sales in India, China and the UK, Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus entered the top five premium Android Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) globally, in the second quarter of 2018, said a report on Wednesday.

According to Hong Kong based Counterpoint Research’s “Market Monitor Q2 2018” report, OnePlus was one of the fastest growing brands in the $400-$600 price segment as the global premium smartphone segment grew faster (+7 per cent) than the overall smartphone segment (-1 per cent) in the second quarter of 2018.

The premium segment, which consists of devices above $400, accounts for one-fifth of the global smartphone market.

“In India, it (OnePlus) surpassed Apple and Samsung to become the number one premium smartphone OEM during the quarter with a strong 40 per cent market share. It was also amongst the top five premium smartphone OEMs in France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Sweden and the UK on account of strong initial sales of OnePlus 6,” the market research firm said in a statement.

Around 40 OEMs compete in the premium smartphone segment worldwide, out of which the top five players account for almost 88 per cent of the sales.

In the $800+ price segment, Apple dominated with 88 per cent share during the second quarter.

“In the $600-$800 segment, Apple and Samsung alone contributed to 85 per cent of shipments, while Huawei trailed by a big margin,” Counterpoint added.
