This one article from several where they claim we get an update to the face unlocking software. 

@HMD_Laura ; Can you check with HMD when we get the promised update? 

Thank you. :)

    Nokia 4.2 is the first one with the face unlock.
    Maybe next months the other model also will receive it.

    Empty promise for the Nokia 8 to get anything other than the smart unlock face unlock. It just doesn't have the hardware to do it securely. No depth hardware to map a face and no infrared illumination to illuminate a face in lowlight.

    Face unlock seems to work OK for me on my Nokia 8 (on 5.150 Pie)

    I've set it up via Settings, Security & Location, Smart Lock, Trusted Face

    (Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're all referring to...)

    Trusted Face is not the same as Face unlock. Take a look the video I shared

    Smart Lock, Trusted Face
      is good enough.  I do not need more.

    Yes, it works, but it's not a safe feature.  :#
    HMD will use its own technology.    :)
    Read the article:

    On Nokia 8 works, you are not with the same phone.

    Not the same phone and that's disabled by an admin so it DOES work.
