CEO explains why OnePlus 6T has an on-screen fingerprint sensor

OnePlus 6T Has Edge To Edge Display, Reveals Official Teaser OnePlus 6T teaser shows all-screen design, in-display fingerprint sensor
| 03 October, 2018, 12:42

Speaking of upgrades, the OnePlus 6T is confirmed to get an in-display fingerprint sensor technology in which the fingerprint sensor is placed beneath the screen, allowing the phone to sport a unibody design.

OnePlus's Carl Pei said previously that the decision to remove the jack has to do with adding new technology as well as improving battery life. Just like the OnePlus 6, the upcoming OnePlus 6T will also lack IP certification. As you can see in the images, the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone has been now moved under the screen, making it feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. I'm a big fan of their phones, as are many of you, but I'm OK if they want to stop acting like something they aren't.

Apart from the changes mentioned above, the OnePlus 6T is also reported to get a new screen format, with a tiny notch on top. OnePlus is talking about the in-display fingerprint scanner which the upcoming device will have.

OnePlus confirmed in previous interviews that the OnePlus 6T will have an in-display fingerprint sensor and that it'll lack a headphone jack, both representing firsts for the company. In-display fingerprint sensors are rare in smartphones now, a handful of devices from Vivo such as Vivo X20 Plus UD, Vivo X21 and Vivo Nex and OPPO R17 come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The OnePlus 6T will be reportedly powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 as it it the best processor offered by Qualcomm right now. However, the company is said to be working hard to bring wireless charging support with fast charging and less heat generation.


Other bits and pieces the OnePlus CEO touched on were regarding wireless charging and an IP rating.

Will a lack of a headphone jack, IP rating or wireless charging make you look elsewhere or is it something you'd prefer to have but not a deal breaker?

Elsewhere, not too much is known about the OnePlus 6T. That's because the parts that OnePlus won't change concern the hardware.

In fact, thanks to invites to a OnePlus event which made the rounds over the internet reveal that the OnePlus 6T may launch on the 17th of October.
