With the release of the 5T, OnePlus decided to change the phone’s design up a bit and introduced an 18:9 aspect ratio display. With this change, the company moved the fingerprint sensor to the back of the handset. Additionally, OnePlus introduced its own Face unlock technology to help users get into their phones as quickly as possible. Here’s how to set up the fingerprint sensor and Face unlock on your OnePlus 5T
