OnePlus has announced that the 6T, an enhanced version of the OnePlus 6 released earlier in the year, will be launching on October 30th at an event in New York City. The new model is expected to feature a tiny display notch and an in-display fingerprint sensor that’s responsible for the new handset’s “Unlock the Speed” tagline. Unfortunately, the 6T will see OnePlus drop the headphone jack for the first time, although it’s previously said that doing so will free up space for other technologies to be present in the device.
OnePlus is just the latest company to offer an in-display fingerprint scanner following the likes of Vivo, Xiaomi, and Huawei. The company’s tech requires you to place your finger on a specific part of the screen to work, but if that sounds too complicated then Face Unlock will be available as an alternative.
The 6T is also expected to see a dramatic reduction in the size of the display notch compared to the OnePlus 6. The size of the indent only leaves enough space for a front-facing camera, but should maximise the phone’s screen-to-body ratio.
The event kicks off at 11AM local time in New York City, so check back then for the full details.
