    How OnePlus 6T in-display fingerprint sensor works?

    Talking about the functionality of the in-display fingerprint sensor used by the smartphone, the camera lens under the display will take a close-up photo of the fingerprint and record it for future unlocking using the illuminators on the screen. This technology might pave way for a new innovation of using selfie cameras under the display in the future. This way, manufacturers can get rid of the display notch for good.
