How to enable FaceID Unlock on any Xiaomi Device like Redmi Note 4 This feature is originally and officially came from Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 pro but thanks to XDA Junior Member shubhandu, for porting FaceID for Xiaomi Redmi Note 4.

While Android has a basic implementation of facial authentication, it wasn’t until the iPhone X that the feature started to gain traction. Various OEMs, including Huawei and Honor, have been working to bring their own version of the feature to their devices. Meanwhile, unofficial solutions are bringing Face ID-like unlocking to even more smartphones. 

XDA Junior Member shubhandu, with assistance from oc01 and Barnum on, was able to port Face Unlock from the Redmi Note 5 Pro to the Redmi Note 4. So far, the developer has tested it on the latest Stable MIUI V9.2.1.0.NCFMIEK (MIUI9) and Developer Rom 8.2.8 (MIUI9), but a forum member says it worked for him on China Stable as well.

The mod comes in a flashable ZIP file that you’ll have to install via TWRP (or any other compatible custom recovery). After it’s installed, you can simply boot back into Android to see the feature.

It doesn't work on MIUI8, Kindly update it to the latest firmware and flash this.

For custom roms either this function is already there( if it's not why are you still on it, come back to stock guys, it's quite nice here.) or you can use the Trusted Face Unlock from Google( For near vanilla roms).

Regarding any other device, I really don't know.
