The image above also reveals there's no rear-facing fingerprint sensor under the camera module, which is where it was positioned on the OnePlus 6. In the image, one can clearly see there is no triple rear camera setup or a pop-up camera mechanism. Brand ambassador Amitabh Bachchan in the advertisement also alludes to the in-display fingerprint sensor, calling it "a cooler way to unlock your phone".

Inside, it is expected to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 octa-core, Android Oreo OS (later upgradable to Android Pie) and in multiple RAM + storage configuration-6GB RAM+64GB storage, 8GB RAM+128GB storage and 8GB RAM+256GB storage. The smartphone, going by the history of "T" line up of handsets, should come as an update over the OnePlus 6 instead of being a completely new smartphone. This feature, to be known as Screen Unlock, may have a positive effect on the hype around the device.

OnePlus 6T, the upcoming smartphone by the firm that recently got confirmed by the company and a listing on Amazon India, has gone through several leaks ever since the OnePlus 6 launch. This is further evidence that the phone will pack an optical fingerprint reader embedded right in the display.

To add fuel to this rumour a leaked image of the OnePlus 6T box appears to show the technology.
