    Hey Punit, great idea. If Oneplus were to make an in-glass fingerprint, that would be a very new and attractive feature; however, I feel the idea is still a very good concept, and not a very good application yet. Although the Vivo X20 does have the in-glass fingerprint, it still is a process. With the onscreen button, you can make the sensor as large as you want it to, but you need to wait for the whole, light up, then the finger placement. With a hardware button, you won't have as much of a space to put your finger (which we already dealt with since the launch of the Oneplus 3), but there is no need to turn it on or off. My verdict would be to stick to the hardware button, but only for this last device. When Oneplus launches their next device, I would like to see an in-glass fingerprint scanner.

    I understand the concern of that... but that is the main reason why the Oneplus 5t has the face unlock feature.

    I had a Pixel before buying my first OnePlus (5) and one of the most important things for me was having the fingerprint on the front. It is very handy on the back for the daily use but absolutely terrible for people working at desks. Face recognition is still not so safe and you need to have a weird face position to unlock a phone on a desk. So, despite being very tempting to get the OnePlus6, I will probably wait to see the 6T or I will have to consider the Huawei P20.

    How to resolve this? I propose:

    1. Fingerprint in a small bezel on the front.
    2. In-screen fingerprint - slower than acceptable?
    3. Better facial recognition, Apple style.
    4. Notch in the lower part with a fingerprint embebed. Why not? ;)

    King Star from SlashLeaks has posted an image of what possibly could be packaging of the next OnePlus handset the 6T , from the picture below it looks as if the newest version will have the underscreen fingerprint sensor.

    Can't wait for this tech to be blazing fast. Not like the present scanner. Those are way too slow

    If these leaks about the OnePlus 6T are true, this thread will be even more relevant soon.

    You are going to have the best haircut so far, clean and fresh :p

    (I'm curious to try a phone with that fingerprint sensor, however, I think I'll use it only when the phone is on the table. On the OnePlus 6 I barely touch the fingerprint sensor anymore - Face Unlock is my main method to unlock the device).

    The OnePlus 6 is a very popular device right now, but OnePlus isn’t done releasing phones this year. Their “T” series comes out towards the end of the year as a slightly improved version of the main series. We’ve already heard a little bit about the OnePlus 6T and it may be a considerable upgrade this year. Apparently, the OnePlus 6T will have an in-display fingerprint sensor.

    Surprisingly, this report is not a rumor. The information comes directly from OnePlus. They confirmed in an email to CNET that the OnePlus 6T will have an in-display fingerprint sensor (as shown in the screenshot). OnePlus wanted to have this feature as early as the OnePlus 5T, but the technology was not mature enough.

    As a result of the in-display fingerprint sensor, the OnePlus 6T will be slightly thicker than the OnePlus 6 (only by 0.45mm). The design of the phone is said to have a more unibody look as well. Currently, in-display fingerprint sensors are only available on a few Vivo and Huawei phones. The OnePlus 6T would be the first “mainstream” device to feature this new technology.

    We don’t know a ton about this next OnePlus phone yet. It will apparently be available on T-Mobile, which is a huge win for the company in the US. Other rumors mentioned in the CNET report include triple rear cameras, $550 price tag, and an October launch date (the screenshot may give us a clue about that).

    i hope it is as secure and as fast as capacitive one, if not then it is better to stick with the capacitive ones. Speed over Cosmetic enhancements.

    As a fact, I did read earlier having popped up in my Google feed. Android Authority or something... But the point for the OP was that credits to the author are always required.
    Copying a text without mentioning the source is still stealing

    Definitely won't be as fast as traditional ones. Better not to have our hopes high.

    yeah. They should stick to the trusty old capacitive ones until the technology is mature enough to be practically useful.

    Notch was not a better solution. Still adapting it makes the phone sell like a hot cake. Business is more important than customer satisfaction nowadays.

    Sadly but its the truth :( Even Google is making the same mistake this year just like last year (removing Headphone Jack)
