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

OnePlus 6T Has Edge To Edge Display, Reveals Official Teaser

OnePlus 6T Has Edge To Edge Display, Reveals Official Teaser

The OnePlus 6T Android flagship will be launching alongside seven accessories, according to a new report that also reveals their prices. Keeping the headphone jack allows our users to continue to take full advantage of the excellent range of audio choices on the market. Pete Lau added that "After you experience the Screen Unlock you'll fall in love with it", he said. In the process, he confirmed that the upcoming 6T would not feature wireless charging as OnePlus is "working hard" on the technology.

As part of its marketing program, OnePlus has opened up The Lab - as it has done with previous models of its phones. 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.

The OnePlus 6T does contain a fingerprint scanner but it will be embedded within the display itself. The interview with Lau reveals that new technology is the in-display fingerprint sensor.

Another hint given by Pete Lau during the interaction with CNET is regarding the price of the OnePlus 6T.

Something else the OnePlus 6T won't have is an IP certification rating. "Screen Unlock technology is something very new, and there's a definite cost required for that new technology", said Lau in the interview. The OnePlus 6T will be more water resistant than its predecessor, but OnePlus doesn't want to pay the price to get the official rating.

So no wireless charging or an IP rating for water and dust resistance. He is quoted to say that the feature is "unreasonable" as "the number of users that are taking their phone to go swimming are few and far between". The OnePlus 6T is expected to get a dual camera module with several software-based enhancements such as artificial intelligence-based automatic scene recognition, better low light photography, etc. But several OnePlus fans have been asking for wireless charging feature since the day OnePlus 6 released, but OnePlus is not incorporating it in the upcoming OnePlus 6T.

OnePlus might have a reputation for making flagship smartphones that are affordable but that doesn't mean they're behind the times.
