  • OnePlus 6T Launching on October 17

One of the most radical changes the device will sport will be the in-display fingerprint sensor. This comes months after the company launched its current flagship, the OnePlus 6 in the market.

OnePlus" tweet, which gives a teaser video of this feature, was posted with the statement "Incoming: "Top Secret Message".

The upcoming OnePlus 6T will feature an in-display fingerprint reader, the company confirmed to CNET. Named finger-on-display by Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus, this feature was first meant to debut on the OnePlus 5T.

It was only last week that a leaked image of the OnePlus 6T's packaging revealed a major feature: fingerprint on display. When you touch the designated area of the screen with your fingers, a sensor array turns on the display to light your finger. However, because "the technology wasn't mature enough to meet [OnePlus'] standards for delivering a fast and smooth user experience", it was delayed until the OnePlus 6T.

Tech publication SlashGear recently leaked a render which shows the device sporting extremely thin-bezels like its predecessor, OnePlus 6.

Unlike the conventional fingerprint sensors, the in-display fingerprint sensor technology is embedded under the screen, making it a discreet addition without compromising on the phone design.

Besides this, the phone is also rumoured o come with a "waterdrop" style display notch, as well as a triple rear camera configuration.

The phone is also rumored to have a water drop front face camera notch which will be predominant on high-end phones launching in late 2018 or early 2019. However, the company is yet to come out with an official date.

Meanwhile, another report also indicates that OnePlus could launch new Bullets Wireless headphones when it introduces the OnePlus 6T.

As far as pricing goes, the device may be reportedly priced around $550 (about Rs 40,000).
