OnePlus also confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will be available on T-Mobile, marking the first time a OnePlus phone is sold by a USA carrier. OnePlus today officially confirmed to CNET that the OnePlus 6T will, indeed, ship with an in-screen fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus" tweet, which gives a teaser video of this feature, was posted with the statement "Incoming: "Top Secret Message". I am hoping that OnePlus can pull off a miracle and improve the current state of in-display fingerprint sensor technology.

The inclusion of Screen Lock will bring OnePlus in line with other Chinese manufacturers like Vivo, Oppo and Xiaomi to launch an in-display fingerprint sensor. It will rely on Face Unlock and the new tech in-display fingerprint sensor instead to lock/unlock the phones. But whatever: To the user, they will be pressing their finger on the display to unlock the phone.

The in-display fingerprint technology was first introduced by another Chinese smartphone brand Vivo.

"It's fast, looks great and has a very nice display which offers a brilliantly bright and sharp viewing experience".

The in-display fingerprint sensing functionality only works on an OLED display which remains inside below the screen and shines with a light when you place your finger building a map of your finger unlocking the device.

'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'.

In order to add the new unlocking functionality, OnePlus claimed the design of the 6T had to be altered when compared to its predecessor.

Since 2016, OnePlus has taken to releasing two flagships every year and this year will be no different, as the OEM plans on launching a direct successor to the OnePlus 6 soon, in the form of the OnePlus 6T.
