However, according to company's statement, the technology was not ready then, therefore it was delayed until now. The new smartphone will come with in-screen fingerprint sensor, a new technology which allows users to unlock the phone by tapping the screen, reports CNET. That's not all, consumers are likely to get a first official glimpse of the device in the coming months, meaning it will launch before the end of this year. As noticed in the product review, the in-display fingerprint sensor is not as fast and accurate as the conventional fingerprint sensors. Vivo recently launched V11 Pro with the waterdrop notch that covers just the front-camera module.

OnePlus also confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will be available on T-Mobile, marking the first time a OnePlus phone is sold by a United States carrier.

The big picture: OnePlus is expected to unveil its OnePlus 6T in October. The company confirmed the presence of the in-display fingerprint reader in its upcoming flagship phone to CNET.

That is why the OnePlus 6T will be 0.45millimetres thicker than the OnePlus 6, the Chinese firm continued. In this case, signs point to the OnePlus 6T looking very much like the Vivo X23 and Oppo R17, with a fingerprint reader embedded under the screen and a tiny notch shaped like a water droplet. The area is lit up with an icon to make it easy to identify where to touch to register a fingerprint.
