The OnePlus 6T is still two months far from the official launch and we already know most of the things about the device. The recently leaked retail box revealed much of the necessary info and now the company has officially confirmed the OnePlus 6T to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The confirmation comes from a mail sent by the Company to tech media revealing that the OnePlus 6t will come with an in-display fingerprint scanner mentioned as “Screen Unlock”. They have also attached an image showcasing the OnePlus 6T’s lock screen in the always-on mode with the fingerprint icon at the bottom of the display.
Moreover, OnePlus said that they wanted to add this technology in the OnePlus 5T last year, but were unable to do so due to the fact that this in display fingerprint scanning technology was not mature enough to provide good user experience at that time.
“We unlock our phones multiple times a day, and Screen Unlock reduces the number of steps to complete the action. By adding this feature as an addition to other display unlocking options such as Face Unlock, users will have options to unlock the display in a way that is most efficient for them,”
says OnePlus. For those not comfortable with the same can use the face unlock as per their convenience.
For making the same possible, the company is going to reallocate some internal components in order to make space for battery and the fingerprint scanner under the display, increasing the thickness by 0.45mm compared to the OnePlus 6.
In the meanwhile, the device has also made its appearance in the freshly leaked renders which show an Oppo R17 Pro-like design with triple cameras and a teardrop-shaped notch which was hinted previously by the leaked retail box.
Furthermore, the device is expected to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (or 855) along with 6/8GB of RAM. An IP68 rating and a larger battery is something we look forward to.
OnePlus has also confirmed to CNET that the phone will be launching on October, which can also be seen on the screenshot. Take a look at the date there, October 17th. That can’t be a coincidence, it might be a confirmation to the launch date of the OnePlus 6T. All we can do now is wait for more leaks and more about the device in coming weeks!
Nokia 5.1 Plus to be Launched on September 24, To be Flipkart exclusive
HMD Global announced the Nokia 6.1 Plus and the Nokia 5.1 Plus last month in the Indian market. However the company didn’t reveal the price of the Nokia 5.1 Plus.

The teaser also reveals that the device will be launch on September 24 at 2:00 PM IST, where it will be revealing the pricing information.
It is also to be noted that the teaser reveals the hashtag #GameOn, which was previously reported to be that Nokia is working on a gaming phone, so that actually was a teaser for this phone and not a gaming phone.
The Nokia 5.1 Plus features a 5.86 inch display with a resolution of HD+ (1520 x 720 pixels) and an aspect ratio of 19:9 because of the top notch. Under the hood it is powered by an Octa-core MediaTek HelioP60 processor clocked at 2GHz. It will be coupled with 3GB RAM with 32GB internal storage which can be further expanded by a microSD card.
In the optics department, the Indian variant sports a 13MP camera sensor with PDAF, LED flash and AI assisted features while the front offers an 8MP camera sensor for selfies and video calling. It will run stock Android 8.1 Oreo unlike the Chinese variant and will be backed by a 3,000 mAh battery. There is a rear mounted fingerprint scanner though it supports Face Unlock too.

Nokia X7/7.1 Plus Renders Appear Online. Shows Off a Familiar Design (Of course, with a Notch!)
HMD Global launched the first notched Nokia phone, the Nokia X6 and followed up with Nokia X5 in China which was rebranded as Nokia 6.1 Plus and Nokia 5.1 Plus in overseas respectively. Now the Finnish company is planning to launch the Nokia X7 in China which will be named as Nokia 7.1 Plus in international markets.

Well, we’ve seen previous rumours that Nokia 7.1 Plus aka Nokia X7 is going to come with no notch, with it’s display panel being leaked without a notch, but with a normal 18:9 display. Now that rumour can be put to rest I guess.
The Nokia X7/7.1 Plus feature a similar design to that of the Nokia 6.1 Plus. It appears to have a glass body with a metal frame sandwiched in between. Though the previous leak suggests the handset will not have a notched display, the official renders show a notched display, a narrow one like the Nokia 6.1 Plus. It hints that the device may feature a FHD+ (2280 x 1080 pixel) resolution with an aspect ratio of 19:9.
In the rear, there is dual camera setup stacked in a vertical arrangement with an LED flash module. It clearly states that the device will features Carl Zeiss optics and a small camera bump. There is a circular fingerprint sensor placed below the cameras and the company logo following it. Also a Android One branding can also be seen clearly. The volume and power button are placed on the right side.
The Nokia 7.1 Plus is rumoured to be powered by an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset likely to be coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Rumours also point to a larger battery with support for fast 18W charging. It is expected to come with the latest Android 9 Pie and be priced around Rs 25,000 approx. Since HMD takes a gap between the launch of the Chinese and International variant. The Nokia 6.1 Plus was launched three months after the Nokia X6. Following this schedule, the Nokia 7.1 Plus may be launched sometime towards the end of this year.
