OnePlus 6T will have an in-screen fingerprint sensor, OnePlus confirms

We've seen in-display fingerprint sensors on other phones but the One Plus 6T might be the phone that popularizes this technology

Note that the addition of a fingerprint reader behind the display panel will make the 6T thicker. The company has confirmed to Cnet that its upcoming smartphone will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner.

So, OnePlus' confirmation puts paid to that particular piece of speculation once and for all. While many leaks have emerged around OnePlus 6T, one of the most rumoured specification is that of the fingerprint scanner coming under the phone's screen.

In-screen fingerprint sensors have become more common on high-end devices of late, such as Huawei's Mate RS Porsche Design.

Leaked images of the alleged retail box of the phone suggested that the OnePlus 6T's design will be based on the Oppo R17 Pro with a waterdrop notch. Apple, meanwhile, isn't expected to add such sensors to the iPhone display.

As OnePlus' fingerprint sensor on the back and face unlock on the front have been effortless to use.

Meanwhile, another report also indicates that OnePlus could launch new Bullets Wireless headphones when it introduces the OnePlus 6T.

We expect to see the phone itself in November.

The company wanted to introduce the technology on the OnePlus 5T a year ago, but "the technology wasn't mature to meet [OnePlus'] standards for delivering a fast and smooth user experience".

Will the OnePlus 6T bring a minor upgrade over the OnePlus 6, or will it be something truly worth spending your money over?
