Did OnePlus just reveal the 6T launch date?

"This will make it not only the first OnePlus phone with the technology, but also the first phone to have it that is widely available in the US too".

One of the most radical changes the device will sport will be the in-display fingerprint sensor.

Which OnePlus 6T Feature 2018 iPhones Misses Out On?

The technology means that the OnePlus 6T will be slightly thicker (0.45mm) than the current OnePlus 6, but we'll have to wait until next month to know full details of the handset.

OnePlus 6T will have a design very similar to the new Oppo and Vivo smartphones like Oppo R17, Oppo F9 Pro and Vivo V11 Pro. OnePlus 6T users willwill the options to choose which way they want to unlock their phone in a way which is most efficient for them, or use both. Image credit CNET We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action. This update comes as CNET reported being contacted by OnePlus, who have confirmed that the Chinese smartphone maker is working on a fingerprint scanner under the display, that will be activated by the "Screen Unlock' feature". I am hoping that OnePlus can pull off a miracle and improve the current state of in-display fingerprint sensor technology. But whatever: To the user, they will be pressing their finger on the display to unlock the phone.

Despite it's Western name, OnePlus is actually a spin-off brand of Oppo - a sister company of Vivo.

You just press your finger to the screen and the technology embedded embedded behind the display layer senses your print.

In order to add the new unlocking functionality, OnePlus claimed the design of the 6T had to be altered when compared to its predecessor. The company also shared a teaser for the upcoming phone which suggests that it could launch on 17 October this year.
