OnePlus 6 to be launched with an under display fingerprint sensor in March

Fresh leaks suggest that the next OnePlus flagship, the OnePlus 6 will feature an under-display fingerprint sensor. While these are rumours, there are good chances these are credible ones.

OnePlus recently shifted to the 18:9 aspect ratio display, sending the fingerprint sensor from the front to the back of the OnePlus 5T. However, companies like Vivo and Synaptics have already showcased the working of under-glass fingerprint sensors. So it may not be far-fetched to see the OnePlus 6 come with one.

Talking about the next generation of OnePlus flagships, we can clearly mark an outline. Gizmochina has tipped the launch of the OnePlus 6 to take place in March next year. What is there to notice, is the location of the fingerprint sensor on the device.

It is tipped that the OnePlus 6 will come with an under-display fingerprint sensor. We expect this to be a credible news as Vivo, the sister company to OnePlus has already showcased similar technology earlier. In fact, the first Vivo phone with an under-display fingerprint sensor is expected to be launched at the CES next year.

Talking about the next OnePlus flagship, the phone will run on a Snapdragon 845 octa-core processor. In terms of RAM and storage, we expect there will be 6GB / 8GB RAM and 64GB / 128GB of internal storage.

While OnePlus smartphones came with front-mounted fingerprint sensors till the OnePlus 5, the OnePlus 5T comes with a rear-mounted one. The company did this to minimize the bezels on their 18:9 aspect ratio display. However, a front-mounted fingerprint sensor is much preferred over a rear-mounted one.

Under Display Fingerprint sensors

Vivo and Qualcomm were the first to partner and showcase the first under-display fingerprint sensor. After that, recently Synaptics became the first company to put under-display fingerprint sensors onto mass production. In the coming year, we can expect the 18:9 display to be accompanied by an under display fingerprint sensor.
