OnePlus 6 may feature a Rear-Facing Fingerprint Scanner

OnePlus 6 may feature a Rear-Facing Fingerprint Scanner
It's been just a few days since OnePlus launched its OnePlus 5 flagship smartphone. And now, we have some information regarding the OnePlus 6.

In a recent AMA (Ask Me Anything) event on Reddit, OnePlus revealed that they're considering moving the fingerprint scanner on the back for its next-gen Smartphone. This means that the OnePlus 6 may feature a fingerprint sensor on the back, and technically this will also allow OnePlus to implement the bezel-less display or something like LG G6 to the front.


Additionally, OnePlus also said that their next-gen Smartphone might cost more than $800. That said, OnePlus could have implemented a bezel-less display to the OnePlus 5, but due to lack of resources, the OnePlus 5 uses the same screen as the OnePlus 3T.


OnePlus is probably considering moving the fingerprint scanner on the back for its OnePlus 6 or maybe OnePlus 5T and that means we might see some upgrade over the next-gen OnePlus' display. Thoughts?
