This new biometric technology is being deployed by several smartphone makers. However, the OnePlus flagship seems to have made an innovation in the same.

Following the same, the dual-camera module at the rear is separated from the motherboard. This shows the OIS on the primary camera.
He removes the protective plastic case on the fingerprint sensor exposing the optical in-display fingerprint sensor. When he takes the fingerprint sensor out, it can be seen that it comprises of a sensor and a camera lens.
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.
Removing the sensor reveals a translucent hole. Zack is seen turning on the device without the fingerprint sensor to show that the screen will still work pretty well without any shine. So, this shows that the LEDs in the screen will shine only in one direction. He then assembles all the components making the in-display fingerprint sensor function normally once again.
The same YouTube channel posted the durability test video of the OnePlus 6T as soon as the device was launched. In the durability test video, it was seen that the smartphone's in-display fingerprint sensor can withstand scratches and works fine.
