The new OnePlus 6T in-display finger scanner works even under a heavily scratched Gorilla Glass 6

Just like its spiritual parent the Oppo R17 Pro, the OnePlus 6T sports a 6.4" display with waterdrop notch and Gorilla Glass 6 protection. It upgrades the chipset to Snapdragon 845 from 710 in the R17 Pro, but downgrades the camera kit for that matter. Both devices sport one and the same in-display fingerprint reader, though, which OnePlus claims to be the fastest such scanner currently on the market.
That's not saying much as those are usually slower than regular fingerprint readers, but there is still one important advantage for the in-display finger-reading tech that OnePlus is using in the 6T - it can work even if you scratch the cover glass right on top of it, as you can see at two minutes in the video here.

I do wonder if this works with a screen protector. I’ve traditionally always bought a glass screen protector as an extra insurance in case something were to happen. And I’m curious if you could only use certain protectors with this technology.

I was watching a few review videos today, might be The Verge or Android Authority that says this, and one of them said OnePlus notes that screen protectors may lower the success rate of unlocking the phone so they pre-applied a screen protector for maximum results.
