CEO explains why OnePlus 6T has an on-screen fingerprint sensor

CEO explains why OnePlus 6T has an on-screen fingerprint sensor

Despite the huge demand from users, OnePlus has taken a "tough" decision to remove headphone jack.

As for the IP rating, the OnePlus 6T will be more water resistant than the OnePlus 6 but the cost involved with gaining an IP rating is prohibitive.

This time there's a short video, and you can make out the edge of the screen around the bottom of the phone. [You'll] realise that it's the experience that you wanted.

The OnePlus 6T will be an essential smartphone for OnePlus, as the phone will be made available in the global market like North America with carrier billing support. Customers are accustomed to OnePlus' fast charge technology, Dash Charging, and in order to deliver a similar experience wirelessly, the 6T would have had to be thicker. OnePlus earlier confirmed that the new smartphone will have this feature.

OnePlus confirmed in previous interviews that the OnePlus 6T will have an in-display fingerprint sensor and that it'll lack a headphone jack, both representing firsts for the company. The recent teaser shows a phone with all-screen design and in-display fingerprint sensor, the two major upgrades that the phone would get as a part of upgrade.

- In India, OnePlus 6T is likely to have a starting price of around Rs 35,000.

"When we get to the day that the wireless charging can get up to speed without the implication of heat that we expect, then I believe we can integrate the technology", he said.

Other bits and pieces the OnePlus CEO touched on were regarding wireless charging and an IP rating.

So no wireless charging or an IP rating for water and dust resistance. That's not necessarily a bad move, considering that the cost would be passed on to the buyer.

OnePlus 6T, the upcoming new flagship from OnePlus, still doesn't have a release date, but thanks to new official images as well as a new leak, you can now see what it looks like.

Another noteworthy change in terms of the design of the OnePlus 6T is its new teardrop notched display. It did so with the OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5T and now again with a OnePlus 6T.

OnePlus, the premium flagship smartphone maker from China is all set for the launch of the OnePlus 6T, which is apparently to go live on the 17th of October 2018.
