OnePlus 6T with in-screen fingerprint sensor to launch on October 17

OnePlus 6T has in display fingerprint

OnePlus Confirms That the OnePlus 6T Will Sport an In-Display Fingerprint Reader

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.

OnePlus pointed out that users unlock their devices "multiple times" during the course of the day. OnePlus 6T users willwill the options to choose which way they want to unlock their phone in a way which is most efficient for them, or use both.

It was only last week that a leaked image of the OnePlus 6T's packaging revealed a major feature: fingerprint on display.

OnePlus also told CNET that it was planning to introduce the feature with the OnePlus 5T previous year but decided otherwise as "the technology wasn't mature enough to meet [OnePlus'] standards for delivering a fast and smooth user experience". The new flagship will be called OnePlus 6T with a lot of new changes that will make the device a substantial upgrade from the OnePlus 6. We don't yet know what will be the objective of the third camera: it could be a telephoto lens, a super wide-angle lens or a dedicated black-and-white shooter (our bet is on a tele lens). Evidently, OnePlus has been accused of taking design inspirations from Oppo phones in the past as well.

The in-screen fingerprint sensor is now available in phones from Vivo and Huawei, however sales of these are aimed at consumers in Asia. The Face Unlocking display option will still be there, and users can choose from what are are convenient with. In India, three Vivo phones are the only phones to come with display fingerprint sensing technology: Vivo X21, Vivo NEX, and the recent Vivo V11 Pro. Fingerprint on display, as some of you likely already know, ditches the dedicated fingerprint scanner and instead embeds that functionality in the display itself.

In order to add the new unlocking functionality, OnePlus claimed the design of the 6T had to be altered when compared to its predecessor.

The OnePlus 6T is billed to be unveiled on October 17.
