Face Unlock vs In-Display Fingerprint Sensor
The Face Unlock feature works fine with all the flagship phones, but still many opt to have a fingerprint sensor. A fingerprint sensing security feature adds to the handling functionality, as when you are driving or in the middle of something, the face unlock feature doesn’t come handy.

The sister company of OnePlus, Vivo was the first smartphone brand to launch a commercially viable in-display fingerprint sensor in a smartphone. In India, three Vivo phones are the only phones to come with display fingerprint sensing technology: Vivo X21, Vivo NEX, and the recent Vivo V11 Pro.
The in-display fingerprint sensing functionality only works on an OLED display which remains inside below the screen and shines with a light when you place your finger building a map of your finger unlocking the device.
Comparatively in-display fingerprint sensors are slow, but it works fine in most of the cases with very minimal failures.
Coming to OnePlus 6T, the upcoming OnePlus device will come with a 0.45 mm thick glass on top compared to OnePlus 6. The OnePlus 6T will have an OLED panel and no physical fingerprint sensor. The fingerprint unlock speeds are expected to be somewhere similar between OP6 and OP6T.
