OnePlus 6T holds a camera under the display, as seen from a teardown video by JerryRigEverything. The interiors of the latest OnePlus flagship were revealed by the vlogger, with a specific focus on those that shape OnePlus 6T’s new features. This video follows a durability test of the phone, which he claims performed well.

A segment of the video, midway through the unboxing, attempts to figure the internal hardware related to the in-display fingerprint scanner. For the same, he tears down the display, and begins to peel off the plastic underneath. This reveals the in-display fingerprint sensor setup at the bottom left, the Type-C USB port and the speaker hardware casing.

Some of its components come with insulation onto the circuit board setup, and act as the light sensors of the optical fingerprint scanner. The scanner’s setup itself can be seen as the combination of a camera and a sensor.

According to JerryRigEverything, the fingerprint scanner array uses the light emitted from the OnePlus 6T’s ‘Screen Unlock’ symbol, and the sensor detects the nature of fingerprint from the pattern of ridges it detects. Further along the video, one can spot the display remaining unaffected, though a cavity can be seen from the location of the fingerprint scanner’s lenses. On reassembling the phone, one can spot the OnePlus 6T functioning as usual.

Showing a transparent version of the OnePlus flagship, the video begins with the shutdown of the phone, followed by the removal of the back glass and the battery backup. Soon after, the vlogger is seen dismantling the NFC chip, to get to the phone’s motherboard. From there, he proceeds to remove the rear cameras, and turns the primary lens to show its optical image stabilisation (OIS) mode, before moving onto the phone’s bottom.
