Chinese smartphone company OnePlus has already confirmed that the next flagship smartphone will be the OnePlus 6T. The company surprisingly showed a sneak peak of its upcoming handset at recent India vs Pakistan cricket match during Asian Cup 2018.

According to The Inquirer, an official teaser video of the handset has just been released featuring its in-display fingerprint scanner. This video consists of 16 seconds. In the video, the actor Amitabh Bachchan holds the device teasing a new way to unlock the handset. This feature is undoubtedly the new in-display fingerprint scanner mounted on the handset.

The company confirmed in its official statement earlier this month that the feature will be coming to the device. Previous reports also speculated the same on the device. This Screen Unlock can reduce the number of steps to complete the action of unlocking the device multiple times. This is an additional feature to other display unlocking options like Face Unlock to be more efficient.

In terms of specifications, the Snapdragon 845 internals will come running the OnePlus 6T. Its battery will be bigger than its OnePlus 6 predecessor. This device will also be the first smartphone to ditch the 3.5millimeter headphone jack in favor of USB-C as the company’s founder Carl Pei claimed. The company removed the jack to free up more space to place more new technology into the upcoming device.

The company has also tipped that the new Type-C Bullet earphones will also be introduced alongside the device at the price of £15.99 in the UK. Then, the device will also have a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen display with the resolution of 2340 x 1080 and the screen-to-body ratio of 91.6 percent. Google’s Android 9.0 Pie operating system will power the device with 6GB or 8GB RAM in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options.

In terms of photography, the video showed that Bachchan’s finger is actually blocking the view where the fingerprint scanner will be. If the speculations are true, the handset will have a triple camera set up at the rear like the current Huawei P20 Pro. The two lenses are in the same assembly while the third lens is separate.
