Redmi Note 5 Pro has started receiving Face Unlock feature via an OTA  software update. At its launch in India last week, Xiaomi promised that it will roll out the feature for the Redmi Note 5 Pro through an update by the end of March, but it has now released the update early to please initial buyers.Redmi Note 5 Pro is Xiaomi’s first smartphone in the country to get the Face Unlock feature.

However, it is certainly not as secure as the fingerprint scanner. Xiaomi India’s Lead Product Manager Jai Mani at the launch event elaborated the artificial intelligence (AI) tweaks empowering the Face Unlock. “Our face detection algorithm scans facial features in roughly 500 milliseconds using a high accuracy matching mechanism,” said Mani.

Xiaomi is bringing the Face Unlock feature through the MIUI v9.2.4 NEIMIEK update that comes in 1.6GB. The new software update also includes camera improvements and stability optimisations. Although, as per Xiaomi Product PR Lead Clinton Jeff, the update will be available out of the box for customers who ordered the Redmi Note 5 Pro through its first flash sale earlier this week, you can manually check its availability by going to the Settings System updates option or by using the Updater app.

Phone will be available for flash sale on Flipkart and Mi.com in 28th February, 12.00pm onwards
