The OnePlus 6T is confirmed to trade-off the 3.5mm audio jack to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor, the two major changes that the phone would get as a part of upgrade. Speaking of an in-display fingerprint sensor, in the OnePlus 6T the fingerprint sensor would be placed beneath the screen, allowing the phone to sport a unibody design on the back.
The in-display fingerprint sensor technology allows a part of the screen to double up as a biometric recognition module for identifying fingerprints to unlock the phone. OnePlus’ sister company, Vivo, has been offering this technology in some of its premium models, such as the Vivo X21, Vivo Nex and the Vivo V11 Pro. – Business Standard
