Shenzhen based tech company OnePlus is expected to unveil the controversial OnePlus 6T in the next few weeks or these coming months. More and more leaks and actual facts keep on appearing online. Its features have started to confirm from the company, which most likely means that its launch date is imminent.

According to Forbes, the company’s chief executive officer Pete Lau has mentioned that two key hardware features will drive the conversation around the upcoming device. The company decided to remove the 3.5millimeter stereo headphone jack because they want to add the in-display fingerprint scanner.

This new feature for the upcoming OnePlus 6T will be located near the bottom of the phone. It will replace the physical sensor on the back of the phone to under the screen. This could be the reason the company calls it as Screen Unlock. The company seems to make sure that everybody knows that this device can unlock quickly at one’s convenience.

To those who are not aware, the company promoted its Face Unlock system on the current OnePlus 5T. So, this scanner could be a marginal gain on the upcoming device over the use of the forward facing fingerprint sensor in the home button like the current OnePlus 5 or the rear mounted sensor on the OnePlus 6 and 5T. However, this move will have to lose another usual feature like the headphone jack.

There is no confirmed exact price for the upcoming OnePlus 6T. However, the company has hinted that the device’s price will go up because of the pricey new components like the in-display fingerprint scanner. The device will probably not be near the prices of the iPhone XS and Samsung Galaxy Note 9. Recent reports suggest that the company will collaborate with T-Mobile US to sell the upcoming device in the US.

So, what do you expect for the upcoming OnePlus 6T before its release? Share your ideas by writing in the comment section below.
