OnePlus 6T to Include an In-Screen Fingerprint Reader
OnePlus says its next phone will allow people to unlock their phones by placing their finger directly on the display. The in-display fingerprint reader is expected to appear on the OnePlus 6T due later this year. Several devices already offer this feature, such as the Vivo 11, but they are reserved for overseas markets. By using a reader that's embedded in the display, OnePlus can recoup space in the chassis for other components. Even so, the 6T will be slightly thicker than the 6 as it moves the fingerprint reader from the rear to the display. "We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action," said OnePlus 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." Earlier this year, OnePlus said its next phone will be sold by T-Mobile, its first such carrier distribution deal in the U.S. The OnePlus 6T will likely make its debut in October.
