OnePlus 6T Confirmed With In-Display Fingerprint Scanner, Arrives Soon

We already have Vivo V11 Pro with the similar technology, and today we have a confirmation about OnePlus 6T to come with In-Display fingerprint scanner. Now that Apple is rumored on getting the same technology ready in time for use on the handset, too.

However, just before the iPhone X launched last year, there were predictions regarding in-display fingerprint scanner, but it never happened, although Apple instead went with Face ID on the iPhone X. But Android OEMs have been in that race to preset their phones with an in-display fingerprint scanner. And they did and the newly released, ready to pre-order Vivo V11 Pro is here.

OnePlus 6T In-Display Fingerprint Scanner Confirmed

OnePlus is another company planning to introduce the same tech onto their phones and indeed set for OnePlus 6T. Oppo is another company which is Android OEM launch phones with In-display fingerprint scanner, and now OnePlus joining the bandwagon.

The company named OnePlus has already confirmed its word to Cnet that its next upcoming smartphone (aka OnePlus 6T) will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. Here’s the blog post and comments on that topic.

“We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action,” said OnePlus in an email to CNET. “By adding this feature as an addition to other display unlocking options such as Face Unlock, users will have options to unlock the display in a way that is most efficient for them.”

What are the uses of an in-display fingerprint scanner on the OnePlus 6T?


First of all, this will make it thicker by 0.45mm when compared to the OnePlus 6. Both on the plus side, the back of the phone will definitely have a unibody look as it lacks any cutout for a fingerprint scanner.

Second, OnePlus offering face unlock on its smartphones which is blazing fast, although the inclusion of an in-display fingerprint scanner will be slightly less useful especially since it is not going to be as faster as the traditional scanner or even face unlock. Rather it can be expensive enough. It will surely help in upping the cool quotient of the device which is always a welcome feature among consumers.

What’s interesting to see is how Android OEMs are offering both fingerprint scanner – in-display or otherwise, and face unlock on their devices, whereas Apple is going all in with Face ID on its 2018 iPhones and iPad Pro lineup.
