Confirmed: OnePlus 6T will feature in-screen fingerprint reader

But OnePlus, with its legions of dedicated fans, will probably be the first mainstream device boasting an under-screen fingerprint sensor. Unlike previous leaks and rumors, this time the information comes straight from OnePlus itself.

In an email sent to CNET, OnePlus said, "We unlock our phones multiple times a day and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action". I am hoping that OnePlus can pull off a miracle and improve the current state of in-display fingerprint sensor technology.

New leaks are giving us a better idea of what's in the OnePlus 6T.

With just a few months away from the OnePlus 6T launch, the company has confirmed a huge upgrade for its upcoming flagship which even the 2018 iPhones won't have. We don't yet know what will be the goal 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).

According to PConline, the 6T will also be equipped with a pop-up front-facing camera, which is slightly wider than that of OPPO Find X.

That is why the OnePlus 6T will be 0.45millimetres thicker than the OnePlus 6, the Chinese firm continued. The technology has already been seen in several flagship products such as OPPO R17 and Vivo Nex, but is a first for OnePlus.

The main benefit of the feature is that allows users to unlock the device without picking the phone up. Companies such as Vivo, Huawei, and now OnePlus can get a head start by being one of the first OEMs to introduce the technology.

The in-display fingerprint sensing functionality only works on an OLED display which remains inside below the screen and shines with a light when you place your finger building a map of your finger unlocking the device. This makes October 17 the likely unveiling date of the 6T (it is indeed a Wednesday).
