Unlike the conventional fingerprint sensors, the in-display fingerprint sensor technology is embedded under the screen, making it a discreet addition without compromising on the phone design.
The company said that the technology reduces the steps required to unlock the phone, when paired with Face Unlock, the whole process is more efficient.
Speaking to CNET, the company said that its implementation of the technology - now found on the likes of the Vivo Nex and Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS - will be unimaginatively branded "Screen Unlock".More news: Hurricane Helene turns northwestward, not a threat to land
Apart from in-display fingerprint sensor technology, the OnePlus 6T is also expected to feature a new format screen with a tiny notch on top.
Has OnePlus revealed the launch date of the OnePlus 6T here? 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).
Apart from that, OnePlus 6T rumors formerly suggested that the device will house a triple rear camera setup and will reportedly launch for $550.
Interestingly, OnePlus also revealed that it originally planned to stick an in-screen scanner into the OnePlus 5T previous 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". Evidently, OnePlus has been accused of taking design inspirations from Oppo phones in the past as well. As it turns out, the OnePlus 6T will indeed use fingerprint on display, which is a relatively young technology that's pretty exciting from a functionality standpoint. OnePlus 6T will also support 5G network.
