OnePlus 6T Launched with in-display Fingerprint sensor and Teardrop Notch

OnePlus 6T specs - hide the notch on oneplus 6t

OnePlus 6T launch was announced yesterday in a colourful event, held in Pier 36, New York. If you peruse the mobile device’s features and specs, you will see they match up with a number of leaks and speculations posted on the Internet in recent times. In the event, the company highlighted the smaller notch of the phone, along with an in-display fingerprint reader, which OnePlus calls the fastest-performing design of in-display fingerprint authentication as of yet.

The manufacturer has joined the growing collection of phone makers that have ditched the headphone jack, as the smartphone does not feature this jack. For the first time in its history, the brand is entering a partnership with T-Mobile, an American carrier, in a deal centred on direct sales rather than restricting the 6T to online purchases.

One Plus 6T Design and Display

OnePlus 6T features a smaller notch in comparison with that of the 6. If you look at both phones from the rear, you won’t see any difference except the absence of the normal fingerprint sensor in the former. The 6T is the first phone, designed by OnePlus, that is coming with an in- display fingerprint reader, called Screen Unlock. The smartphone will be released in a variety of colours, including matte Midnight Black and glossy Mirror Black.
