OnePlus 6T Confirmed to Launch in October with In-display Fingerprint Unlocking

OnePlus 6T in-display fingerprint scanner

One of the most radical changes the device will sport will be the in-display fingerprint sensor.

We have already seen the likes of Oppo and Vivo launch phones with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The technology comprises an optical sensor embedded underneath an OLED panel, which illuminates and reads the user's fingerprint when they place their finger on the display.

Leaked images of the alleged retail box of the phone suggested that the OnePlus 6T's design will be based on the Oppo R17 Pro with a waterdrop notch. And it looks like OnePlus will finally hit this milestone with the 6T. Let us know your thoughts in comments below. The company also had to tweak the internals to accommodate the finger-on-display technology, making the OnePlus 6T design slightly thicker than the OnePlus 6, according to a news report in the CNET.

We noticed a slight uptick in OnePlus 6T rumors in the past few weeks, but it was hardly surprising, considering that we expect the Chinese smartphone maker to unveil its second handset of 2018 in the second half of the year.

Pence told Sunday's edition of CBS' Face the Nation that he hasn't polled staffers about the opinion piece because "I know them". Many senior officials in the Trump administration, including a majority of Cabinet members, have also denied being the author.

OnePlus pointed out that users unlock their devices "multiple times" during the course of the day.

OnePlus will launch its next flagship phone 'OnePlus 6T' on October 17.

The Face Unlock feature works fine with all the flagship phones, but still many opt to have a fingerprint sensor.

The in-screen fingerprint sensor is now available in phones from Vivo and Huawei, however sales of these are aimed at consumers in Asia.

Interestingly, OnePlus also revealed that it originally planned to stick an in-screen scanner into the OnePlus 5T past year, but left it until now because the tech "wasn't mature enough to meet [OnePlus'] standards for delivering a fast and smooth user experience". Now that it is going to be included in the 6T means a slight redesign of the phone.
