OnePlus 6T Confirmed to Come with In-Display Fingerprint Scanner

We've seen in-display fingerprint sensors on other phones but the One Plus 6T might be the phone that popularizes this technology

While smartphone enthusiasts are familiar with OnePlus phones, the masses still don't recognize the brand.

A picture of what is alleged to be packaging from the forthcoming device, expected next month, suggests that the 6T will boast an in display fingerprint sensor, and a "teardrop" notch created to take up as little screen real-estate as possible. The design could be similar to the Oppo R17 Pro, which has recently launched in China.

OnePlus pointed out that users unlock their devices "multiple times" during the course of the day. An optical image sensor and AI processor then scan the fingerprint and unlock the screen.

The OnePlus 6T rumours could turn into reality very soon, as the company has reportedly confirmed its existence.

Before the iPhone X launched past year, there were rumors of Apple working on getting the in-display fingerprint technology ready in time for use on the handset. The Face Unlocking display option will still be there, and users can choose from what are are convenient with.

"By adding this feature as an addition to other display unlocking options such as Face Unlock, users will have options to unlock the display in a way that is most efficient for them", it added. Companies such as Vivo, Huawei, and now OnePlus can get a head start by being one of the first OEMs to introduce the technology.

You just press your finger to the screen and the technology embedded embedded behind the display layer senses your print.

According to CNET, the OnePlus 6T will be 0.45mm thicker than the OnePlus 6, which had a fingerprint reader on the rear.

It seems that OnePlus wants to make the most of its deal with T-Mobile by making OnePlus 6T a device that would be hard to resist. The company also shared a teaser for the upcoming phone which suggests that it could launch on 17 October this year.
