OnePlus in-display fingerprint scanner

Phones with in-display fingerprint sensors first appeared at the beginning of 2018, and the technology was rather unpolished at the time. We’ve seen in-display sensors grow in popularity since then and become standard equipment. There are loads of phones with the technology nowadays, so we thought it would be a good idea to choose the best phones with in-display fingerprint scanners.

The best phones with in-display fingerprint scanners:

Editor’s note: We will be updating this list as more phones with in-display fingerprint sensors hit the market.


1. Samsung Galaxy S20 series

Galaxy S20

Samsung introduced its in-display fingerprint scanners with the Galaxy S10 family, and it’s refined the tech a bit in the newer Galaxy S20 series. Of course, a new fingerprint scanner isn’t the only upgrade to grace the Galaxy S20’s spec sheet. You get a 5G-ready Snapdragon 865 chipset and a beautiful AMOLED display that starts at 6.2-inches.

The camera setup also leaves the previous S10e behind with triple and quad-camera setups across the board. You’ve probably already heard about the impressive Super Zoom on the S20 Ultra, but the S20 and S20 Plus are heavy hitters in their own rights.

Bringing up the rear, all four devices pack at least 4,000mAh batteries and 6GB, with the Ultra sporting as much as 16GB of RAM.

OnePlus was one of the first manufacturers to jump on the in-display fingerprint scanner hype-train, and it’s learned a few tricks along the way. It beat Samsung to the punch the first time around, and the combination of specs and value feel like another OnePlus win.

The latest OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro are available on more networks than before — though a separate version exists solely for Verizon. Either way, you’ll get to experience the in-display fingerprint scanner as well as the Snapdragon 865 processor. The 865 is a fairly popular pick among 5G ready devices, so get ready to see it frequently.

Both of the new OnePlus flagships are also equipped with triple-camera setups, and the 8 Pro packs a few added goodies. The large 4,300mAh and 4,510mAh batteries hang tough with the big names too, so you should have the power to make it through your day. OnePlus is a pioneer in Warp Charging anyway, so recharging shouldn’t be a problem.

Those who would rather get a more affordable smartphone from OnePlus could also take a look at the OnePlus Nord, which offers great value and is definitely one of the best budget phones with an in-display fingerprint scanner.


OnePlus 8 specs:

  • Display: 6.55-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8GB/12GB
  • Storage: 128GB/256GB

  • Front camera: 16MP
  • Battery: 4,300mAh
  • Software: Android 10

OnePlus 8 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.78-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865

  • Software: Android 10

3. Xiaomi Mi 10 series

If you’re on the hunt for a slightly more affordable flagship, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro might be the way to go. It matches the last few options with a large 6.67-inch display and a Snapdragon 865 processor, but the Mi 10 Pro can often be found for around $700. Other core specs include 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

The in-display fingerprint reader and single 20MP front camera are the highlights of the previously mentioned display. On the back, you’ll find an impressive quad-camera layout that’s built around a 108MP main shooter.

Xiaomi’s flagship Mi 10 Pro is balanced by the Mi 10 as well as the more powerful Mi 10 Ultra. The Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are almost identical in many ways, though the basic model has a slightly larger battery that doesn’t charge as quickly. It also sacrifices the telephoto lens that you’ll find on the Mi 10 Pro.

On the other hand, the Mi 10 Ultra is the newest Xiaomi device on the market. It drops the 108MP main shooter in favor of a 48MP lens and boosts the telephoto option to 48MP as well. The updated camera sensors combine for a staggering 120x total zoom, though it comes at a cost of around $1,300.


Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.67-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 108, 20, 12, and 8MP

  • Storage: 128/256GB
  • Cameras: 108, 13, 2, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 20MP
  • Battery: 4,780mAh
  • Software: Android 10

Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra specs:

  • Display: 6.67-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8/12/16GB
  • Storage: 128/256/512GB
  • Cameras: 48, 48, 12, and 12MP
  • Front camera: 20MP
  • Battery: 4,500mAh
  • Software: Android 10

4. Realme X50 Pro

The Realme X50 Pro offers similar specs to many of the devices we’ve mentioned so far, but it beats them all in terms of price. It’ll cost you as little as $569, yet it’s 5G ready thanks to the Snapdragon 865. The display may be a fraction of an inch smaller than some of the rest, but not everyone needs the biggest phone around.

Here: Realme X50 Pro review

Realme added a solid 4,200mAh battery to the setup, which is only made better by the speedy 65W fast charging. No matter how fast you burn through battery, a full charge is often less than an hour away. Another reason to opt for the X50 Pro is the color-changing green finish. It’s a sure way to stand out in a crowd with a device your friends likely won’t have.

Although the quad-camera setup seems to be the one letdown of an otherwise good phone, the savings just might tip the scales back in your favor.


Realme X50 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.44-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 6/8/12GB
  • Storage: 128/256GB
  • Cameras: 64, 8, 12, and 2MP
  • Front camera: 32 and 8MP
  • Battery: 4,200mAh
  • Software: Android 10

5. Asus ROG Phone 3

The Asus ROG Phone 3 isn’t only one of the best gaming phones around, it also sports an in-display fingerprint scanner that gets it straight into this list. Apart from top-of-the-line specs like a Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, a 144Hz refresh rate screen, 512GB of storage, and up to 16GB of RAM, this phone has one of the largest batteries on the market at a whopping 6,000mAh.

Like previous iterations, the ROG Phone 3 also has a variety of mobile gaming accessories that enhance the smartphone gaming experience. One of these is the AeroActive 3 cooling fan, which is essential to keep your phone cool during long gaming sessions. It also adds a headphone jack, which is one of the few things missing on this device.

The ROG Phone 3 also offers air triggers that act as shoulder buttons, as well as a triple camera setup that’s a solid improvement over last year’s model.


Asus ROG Phone 3 specs:

  • Display: 6.59-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865 Plus
  • RAM: 12/16GB
  • Storage: 512GB
  • Cameras: 64, 13, and 5MP
  • Front camera: 24MP
  • Battery: 6,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

6. Motorola Edge Plus

Motorola has long been a champion of affordable phones, but the Edge Plus shows that it can do high-end pretty well too. Though not without its faults, the in-display fingerprint scanner is just the first thing to like about the Moto flagship. It’s backed up by a Snapdragon 865 — no surprise there — as well as 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

The camera bump houses a powerful 108MP shooter, backed up by an 8MP telephoto and a 16MP ultrawide lens. All of those specs sound like power drains though, so you’ll be happy to hear that a 5,000mAh battery holds the whole beast together.


Motorola Edge Plus specs:

  • Display: 6.7-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 12GB
  • Storage: 256GB
  • Cameras: 108, 8, and 16MP
  • Front camera: 25MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 10

7. Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series

You already know that Samsung did a great job with its S20 series in-display fingerprint scanners, so it would follow that the Note 20 and Note 20 Ultra are capable as well right? The answer is yes, and the inclusion of the S-Pen makes the latest Note an even more tempting option. Both pack a Snapdragon 865 Plus as usual in the US, though you may want to opt for the Note 20 Ultra in order to maximize your quality.

The S20 Ultra is no longer the only Ultra in Samsung’s arsenal, and the Note 20 Ultra packs a lot of punch over the Note 20. It’s rocking an edge display as opposed to the Note 20’s flat design, and the Ultra is finished in high-end glass instead of the Note 20’s plastic coating.

All of that comes at an increased cost, however, so you can sleep soundly knowing that the Note 20 offers a minimum of 8GB of RAM along with 128 or 256GB of storage.


Samsung Galaxy Note 20 specs:

  • Display: 6.7-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: SD 865 Plus/Exynos 990
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 128/256GB
  • Cameras: 12, 12, and 64MP
  • Front camera: 10MP
  • Battery: 4,300mAh
  • Software: Android 10

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra specs:

  • Display: 6.9-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: SD 865 Plus/Exynos 990
  • RAM: 8GB/12GB
  • Storage: 128GB/256GB/512GB
  • Cameras: 12, 108, and 12MP
  • Front camera: 10MP
  • Battery: 4,500mAh
  • Software: Android 10

8. LG V60

We can share a moment of silence for the end of LG’s G series, but the V60 shows that the company isn’t slowing down with its flagship designs. It’s a plenty powerful 6.8-inch device that comes in a luxurious blue finish and runs on — you guessed it — a Snapdragon 865.

For a number of years, the LG V series has been a way to show off unique designs and try new features, but the V60 shows that sometimes a straightforward powerhouse is best. LG rounded out the V60’s setup with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, followed by a large 5,000mAh battery. Of course, it also comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner that works great.


LG V60 specs:

  • Display: 6.8-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 8GB
  • Storage: 128GB

  • Software: Android 10

Bringing up the rear on today’s list is the Oppo Find X2 Pro with its luxurious design and orange vegan leather finish. It’s not the first device to give leather a try, but the Find X2 pro does the job better than many of the previous offerings.

The Oppo Find X2 Pro is IP68 water-resistant to stand up to your wildest adventures, and the 3K QHD display brings everything you capture to life. Its 120Hz refresh rate and billion color display simply add to the potential of Oppo’s high-end flagship.

There’s much to discover when you pick up an Oppo Find X2 Pro but the in-display fingerprint scanner and SuperVOOC charging stand out from the other features. Oppo actually achieves 65W charging speeds thanks to the unique dual-cell battery so you can charge less and adventure more.


Oppo Find X2 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.7-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 865
  • RAM: 12GB
