CEO lauds OnePlus 6T in-screen fingerprint while justifying headphone jack removal

Share

OnePlus is naming it as "Screen Unlock.' In an interview with CNET Lau said that "After you experience the screen unlock you'll fall in love with it". Keeping the headphone jack allows our users to continue to take full advantage of the excellent range of audio choices on the market.

The OnePlus 6T was probably one of the devices which customers have been anticipating ever since the launch of the OnePlus 6. As you can see in the images, the fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone has been now moved under the screen, making it feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. [You'll] realise that it's the experience that you wanted.

The newly released official teaser also reveals some of the additional features of the phone.

Why is the absence of a fingerprint scanner so important? Lau would not confirm the price estimate, but he said that Screen Unlock "is something very new and there's a definite cost required for that new technology", adding that "it's not cheap".

This may be due to the inclusion of Screen Unlock, or in-display fingerprint authentication, in a OnePlus product for the first time.

Russian Federation to send advanced S-300 missile defense systems to Syria
For its part, Israel is wary of Iran's growing influence in Syria, bringing its arch-enemy closer to its borders. The S-300 is a relatively modern system capable of engaging targets at the range of up to 250 km.

As per the latest reports, the Chinese handset maker may host the global unveiling event of the OnePlus 6T in India on October 17. However, the company is said to be working hard to bring wireless charging support with fast charging and less heat generation. Lau didn't say as much, but it's easy speculation to make considering that he mentioned manufacturing costs twice during the interview.

Will a lack of a headphone jack, IP rating or wireless charging make you look elsewhere or is it something you'd prefer to have but not a deal breaker? The argument is a bit flawed here, considering that smartphone accidents involving water don't just happen when we go swimming. It did so with the OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5T and now again with a OnePlus 6T.

In addition to number of design details, and the features the leaked OnePlus 6T images show, there are hardware and software details related to the upcoming phone that we know.

OnePlus is mere weeks away from unveiling its next flagship smartphone, the mid-cycle OnePlus 6T.
