OnePlus 6T: When is it releasing?

In order to confirm that its next phone is coming with an in-display fingerprint sensor, OnePlus shared a screenshot with CNET showcasing the in-Screen Unlock feature. The brand may have accidentally unveiled the launch date of its OnePlus 6T. In the screenshot shared, the date seen is October 17, Wednesday. The companies usually tend to put a release date on the press renders of its handsets. And this could be treated as that case.

OnePlus told in an email to CNET, “We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action,” This in-display fingerprint sensor would be a massive change for the OnePlus handset, as it would be the first that for the company.

The Chinese premium smartphone maker has quoted that it was initially going to introduce this feature on OnePlus 5T. However, at the time, the brand felt that the technology wasn’t matured enough to deliver the fast and smooth experience. The introduction of this feature would mean that 6T would be slightly thicker, at least 0.45mm as mentioned in the report.
