Will the OnePlus 6T fingerprint sensor work with a screen protector?

Will the OnePlus 6T fingerprint sensor work with a screen protector?

In this post, we bring you the OnePlus 6T Launcher APK which you can download for your OnePlus 6.

The panel represents a slight increase in size from the OnePlus 6 that came with a 6.28-inch display.

After several teasers and leaks, the OnePlus 6T has made its official debut. Instead of the regular notch, this one comes with a much smaller "teardrop" notch. So, where's the fingerprint sensor?

Colour options will be mirror black and midnight blue. The Nightscape mode for rear cameras will also be available for OnePlus 6 from next month.

While the OnePlus 6T looks very similar to the OnePlus 6 released earlier this year, it's a completely different phone. OnePlus also has a launch event planned specifically for India tomorrow in New Delhi where the company is expected to disclose more details as well as share the prices.

The battery incorporated in the OnePlus 6T will have a 3,700 mAh capacity and the device will come with a water drop notch as well.

There are some tweaks to the interface though.

United States midterms 2018: Trump impeachment would be ‘DANGEROUS’ for Democrats
Even if Republicans do hold on in the Senate , a Democratic takeover of the House would be a pivotal moment in Trump's presidency. It's widely expected that Democrats will regain control of the House but will fall short of cementing a majority in the Senate .

In addition to that, the 6T has support for Smart Boost technology that improves app start speeds to 5 to 20% by storing data from frequently used apps in the phone's RAM.

Coming to the camera, the OnePlus 6T features a 16-megapixel rear camera with Sony IMX519 sensor, f/1.7 aperture, OIS as well as EIS, 20-megapixel secondary camera with Sony IMX376K sensor and f/1.7 aperture.

As for the rest, OnePlus is including the Android security patch 2018.11, an improvement to the UI in the About phone page, general improvements when taking a screenshot, and a new Google quick search box.

The biggest change on the OnePlus 6T when compared to the OnePlus 6 is the in-display fingerprint scanner.

All T-Mobile network features (VoLTE, VoWiFi, etc.) are fully supported.

The OnePlus 6T will be available in Blighty on 6 November, and will be available in three variations; 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB. Then, they offer more RAM than most flagship phones, 128 or 256GB of storage (not 64GB) and in-display fingerprint scanner starting at $549. It means you can buy an unlocked OnePlus 6T from OnePlus and use the Verizon SIM. It isn't really a discount, but basically if you buy the OnePlus 6T between November 1 and January 29, 2019, and activate Jio service on the new phone within the said time period by making a recharge of ₹299, you will get free recharge coupons worth ₹5400 in your MyJio app. It remains to be seen if this adaptation could make the 6 or 6T more competitive with the likes of the Pixel 3 series when the lights go down.

The feature in question is the relocation of the fingerprint scanner from the back of the handset to its front, specifically located on the bottom part of the OnePlus 6T's screen.
