Here's why the OnePlus 6 may indeed sport in-display finger scanner

thicker screen protectors might affect its performance, so you should use the Vivo-approved one that comes with it.You guessed it - besides utter resemblance to the Oppo R15, down to the 6.28" notch-y displays and the vertical dual camera on the back, the "UD" version sports an in-display finger scanner. Vivo even warns that
The X21 UD is not some concept phone like the Apex, either, as it is going on sale on March 28 for the equivalent of about $570, which may give us a hint at how much the OnePlus 6 may end up costing. As far as specs go, here's the list:
- 6.28-inch Full-HD+ Super AMOLED Display with 1080x2280 resolution
- 2.2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 660 processor
- Adreno 512 GPU
- 6GB RAM and 128GB ROM, expandable up to 256GB
- 3,200mAh battery with Fast Charging Support
- Android 8.1 Oreo with Funtouch OS 4
- Dual Rear Cameras – 12MP camera with f/1.8 aperture, Samsung 2L9 sensor & Dual Pixel technology + 5MP camera with f/2.4 aperture
- 12MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture
- Bluetooth 5.0, AI Features, USB 2.0
- AK4376A audio chip for Hi-Fi audio
- Colour Options – Black, Aurora White and Ruby Red
Granted, by the time the OnePlus 6 ships, the midrange Snapdragon may give way to an 845, but the rest should be pretty similar, judging from previous tandem releases of BBK's Oppo, Vivo and OnePlus brands.

Nothing is getting out of hand. Consumers need as little bezel as possible, this will benefit consumers. Why didn't you complain that all the phones are rectangular ?

The funny thing is that no other OEM is able to deliver the same bezel less experience like Apple. Maybe Apple has design patents or so but I find it strange that no other OEM is able to remove the bottom bezel. Only Apple has achieved that and I think removing the bottom bezel is important to create the futuristic look of iPhone X. If the other OEMs cannot remove the bottom bezel out of which reason ever, I think they should take Samsung's design approach but with a flat display instead of a curved one.

The finger print scanner is a benefit. Cat97 you are drinking too much of that Apple koolaid crap. The Notch is not a benefit, period. It brings more problems than any benefit. Clearly you are not reading what you are writing. Or you like to show the world how ignorant you really are. Because you need to go into detail how consumers need as little bezel as possible, and how it will benefit consumers. Especially when a tiny bezel with a display that goes straight across the top is more of a benefit to developers and consumers. This crap about the notch reminds of when Apple was pushing 3D touch, and promoting as the second coming. What a joke that was, especially when Apple is suppose to be making a a few iphones without 3D touch this year. Now the notch was a problem that no one was looking for. As a matter of fact Apple is now FORCING it's developers to add support for the notch, or your app will be rejected. All for a few pixels on either side of the iPhone X. There isn't enough space to show the battery percentage. Talk about jokes. But in all honesty if you want to tell every here what the benefits are. Then I can't wait to see what you are thinking.

It would be great if no one bought a copied notch phone. Man, this is a disgrace to the human intelligence

No body copied apple, everyone copied Essential Phone including apple. But I agree that the notch should. be implemented better and not in your face

Does the Essential Phone have 3D unlocking from front facing cameras? Last I checked the phone only has one camera sensor. The X has a flood illuminator, proximity sensor, ambient light sensor, dot projector. Thus the notch exsists. Apple may figure out a way to hide the notch by creating an existing image. I believe that is coming in 2019.

Do you actually believe that? :) Essential Phone and iPhone X where developed at the same time and does not look alike, they were obviously not copying each other. But look at all the the notch phones that surface now, which phone do you think they resemble? Is it Essential Phone implentation? Which phone have sold millions of units and is most likely would choose to look like?
