Could the Oneplus 6 get a heart rate sensor?

    I was wondering if it would be possible to have a heart rate sensor on oneplus 6?
    We have the fingerprint scan, so is it possible to enable a heart rate sensor option in the next update?
    Or does this fingerprint sensor not have the technology that other phones with fingerprint and heart rate sensor have. This could come in handy for people with medical conditions, so it would be a nice gesture if this would be possible!

    A person with a medical condition should use a proper medical device, not a gimmick on a smartphone. And no, the fingerprint sensor does not act as a heart rate sensor.

    You can install an app that users the camera and the flash to accomplish that, but it's far from accurate.

    you may search for an app on the play store.
    i know there is one called Instant Heart Rate.

    best of luck.

    Heart rate sensors on phones that use optical sensors are not that accurate. Ok for people doing adhoc checking around fitness, not great if important checks for medical conditions. If you need for medical reasons you are better getting a proper external device.

    It looks like a bad 'good idea'. Buy yourself a dedicated device for $30, like Xiaomi Mi Band or else: it will work far better than the FPS thing or other 'flash-based' gizmo.

    I don't really need this feature for myself, but i thought it could be a good thing to add a heart beat sensor which uses the fingerprint to have some fast prediction for heart rate.

    never possible ...
    it requires additional heart rate sensor...

    one plus is only making fool to people .....

    all feature of one plus 6 comes in Asus Zenfone ..... recently launch.... and it's much better than one plus.....

    And you feel the need to convince others of this because...?

    If you feel it's better, no one is stopping you from getting it.

    I never tested in the op6, but you can use the camera and flash to measure the heart rate, is pretty accurate.

    We don't need that. There was some rumor that OnePlus 6 Will have it.
    Was really glad that that rumor was wrong.

    You're free to say whatever you want, but in threads where that is the topic that is being discussed. This thread is about possibly adding a heart rate sensor. How is the Zenfone related to that?

    when u have any health problem next time, visit OnePlus service center instead of hospital. they do all kinds of surgeries and medical treatments.
