Face Unlock is not available in all regions due to governmental policies and privacy laws. Unless and until they make amendments, it won't be available for those regions. There are many countries that support Face Unlock. India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, France, Poland, Greece, Italy, and many more.

Cheers! :-)

Buy a global version that has it if offered, maybe that would work.

I think I have answered your same question on April 6, 2019. I'll just attach a screenshot of that conversation here.



Other companies may not have as much restrictions as Xiaomi as I had explained in that comment (refer attachment). If you think about Huawei and recent news, you'll know.

Adding to #8 comment, Head of POCOPHONE Global mentioned that they need to send field tester and test before they enable it so the features can work properly jn that region. But since people has to go each country it takes long time so they are adding country gradually.
