OnePlus 6T gets a proper teardown, reveals the under-display FP scanner

Ro, 08 November 2018

Ever wondered how the OnePlus 6T's optical under-display fingerprint reader looks? Well, JerryRigEverything has you covered. After taking it apart to make a transparent back, he now goes through the whole disassembly process and walks us through the hardware in there.

And arguably the most interesting part is the in-display fingerprint reader. The video shows off the hole right under the AMOLED panel that lets the sensor take a close-up shot of your fingerprint and all of its ridges and pores. The sensor also looks a lot like a regular camera, but a lot smaller. Jerry even turns on the phone without the scanner so we can see the AMOLED screen in action but the result was mildly disappointing as the small LEDs on the panel shine only in one direction.

Other interesting findings include watertight seals here and there along with a circuit board coating that protects the electronics against corrosion. In addition, OnePlus appears to have utilized the space that the 3.5mm audio jack usually occupies, so at least there's that.

When will be one plus 6t phone available in Kuwait. Give Date of arrival.

That really is an extremely elegant piece of production engineering. There are plenty of phones that are an awful lot worse. Especially the easy battery replacement.

maybe in the future they can use inovation to hide the front camera and make a no-notch phone. Sounds intereting if they will pull this off earlier.
