Phones with in-display fingerprint sensors first appeared at the beginning of 2018, and the technology was somewhat unpolished then. We’ve seen in-display sensors grow in popularity since then and become much more common. There are loads of phones with the technology nowadays, so we thought it would be a good idea to find the best phones with in-display fingerprint scanners and list them up to save you all the hard work.

The best phones with in-display fingerprint scanners

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

Google Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro

Google’s own flagship devices come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. The Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro are also some of the best Android phones you can currently find. Not only because of their unique and high-quality designs, which they inherited from the Pixel 6 series. Also because they come with specs that compete with some of the best in the market. The phones offer a high-end experience, all while keeping prices very reasonable.

Being part of Google’s Pixel lineup, you’re ensured timely updates. Aside from that, the Pixel 7 comes with a 6.3-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The larger Pixel 7 Pro features a 6.7-inch LTPO AMOLED panel with a QHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. Both feature a powerful Google Tensor G2 chipset. And they come with either 8GB or 12GB of RAM, depending on which phone you get.

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better deal than the Google Pixel 7 series, especially if you want an in-display fingerprint scanner. If you want to save some cash, though, consider the Pixel 6a. It offers a bit less than the Pixel 7 but also costs less. It’s powered by the same chipset as the Pixel 6 series, which is still plenty powerful.

OnePlus 10 Pro

We recommend the latest OnePlus 10 Pro if you want a phone with an in-display fingerprint scanner. It packs plenty of other excellent flagship features, too, even if there are a few sidesteps that seem to be ways to keep the cost down.

The OnePlus 10 Pro offers plenty of power with its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, a great 120Hz display, a beautiful design, solid build quality, and impressive battery life. Even better, it still offers speedy 50W wireless charging straight out of the box. You still won’t find an IP68 rating on the unlocked OnePlus 10 Pro, but the T-Mobile version has one, suggesting that both models are waterproof.

OnePlus’ latest version of fast charging lets you fully charge its large battery at 80W wired speeds internationally or 65W speeds in the US. For worldwide markets, that means a full charge in just 32 minutes, while the US iteration can jump to 58% after just 15 minutes of charging. It’s particularly impressive once you consider that we’re talking about a 5,000mAh cell. Hasselblad is once again at the helm of OnePlus’ camera technology. The ultrawide lens is even wider than before, and the 48MP primary lens can capture plenty of detail.


OnePlus 10 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.7-inch, WQHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 128/256GB
  • Cameras: 48, 50, and 8MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 12

Xiaomi 12S Ultra

Xiaomi 12S Ultra camera bag - Phones with an in-display fingerprint scanner

Aside from having an in-display fingerprint scanner, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra is a very unique phone. It comes with all the bells and whistles you can expect from a high-end 2022 phone, like a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, 8-12GB of RAM, a 6.73-inch LTPO AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, and a healthy 4,860mAh battery.

Likely what makes the phone stand out more is housed in its huge camera housing. As you can expect, it’s so large because it’s housing smoothing big. This is one of the few smartphone cameras to feature a one-inch camera sensor with a 50.3MP resolution. The other 48MP cameras are much more traditional at half an inch.

All that said, the Xiaomi 12S Ultra isn’t available worldwide. It was primarily planned to be a China release. You can easily get it imported or find it in unofficial stores in the USA and other countries, though.


Xiaomi Mi 12S Ultra specs:

  • Display: 6.73-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 256/512GB
  • Cameras: 50, 48, and 48MP + ToF 3D
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 4,300mAh
  • Software: Android 12

The ASUS ROG Phone lineup has provided some of the best gaming phones year after year, and the company isn’t stopping any time soon. The ASUS ROG Phone 6D UIltimate is as stunning as its name entails.

This handset comes with all the optimizations you can ask for in a gaming device. The screen is large at 6.78 inches, and it comes with a 165Hz refresh rate and 1,200 nits of brightness. The MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ is plenty powerful to handle any game, and its 16GB of RAM is nothing to scoff at. All that power will also drain your battery fast, which is why this device comes with a sizeable 6,000mAh battery.

Other fancy features include an integrated air vent, a secondary two-inch screen in the back, and, of course, it also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor.


ROG Phone 6D Ultimate specs:

  • Display: 6.78-inch, FHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12/16GB

Samsung Galaxy A53

Samsung’s affordable 5G smartphones pack more punch than ever, especially with the launch of the Galaxy A53. It may not look too different from its predecessor, the A52 5G, but there’s not much more you could ask for in a $450 phone.

Samsung kept high refresh rates on its mid-ranger, with the A53 rocking a Super AMOLED screen and a 120Hz refresh rate. Another helpful upgrade is the camera setup, headlined by an impressive 64MP shooter. You get dual-SIM capabilities, with the second slot doubling as a microSD card slot, but the headphone jack is no more. The 5,000mAh battery also comfortably lasts through an entire day and beyond. Once you drain the battery, you can tap into 25W fast charging to get back on the go.

The in-display fingerprint scanner on the Galaxy A53 is much more precise as well as faster than the one on its predecessor, so you’ll be able to unlock the device without an issue.


Samsung Galaxy A53 5G specs:

  • Display: 6.5-inch, Full HD+
  • SoC: Exynos 1280
  • RAM: 4/6/8GB
  • Storage: 128/256GB
  • Cameras: 64, 12, 5, and 5MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 12

The Vivo X90 series features one of the best in-display fingerprint readers in the industry. It’s actually the same sensor we saw in the Vivo X80 Pro, which is very responsive and has 11 times the area compared to most competitors.

The Find X3 Pro offered a great design, and the newer Oppo Find X5 Pro takes a functional equation and improves upon it. It looks gorgeous, featuring a ceramic back that’s said to be twice stronger than glass. While there’s a camera bump, it blends in better than in most other handsets. Of course, there’s also a fast in-display fingerprint scanner on board.

Specs are nothing to scoff at, offering a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, 8/12GB of RAM, and a 5,000mAh battery. It also sports a gorgeous 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED panel with a 120Hz refresh rate. It’s IP68-rated, and the triple-camera setup is outstanding.

Our thoughts: Oppo Find X5 Pro review

The phone comes with stereo speakers, which are boosted by Dolby’s Atmos technology. There’s a reasonable balance between the top and bottom speakers that’s better than most, and the sound can easily fill up a room. It’s a great phone all around.

  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB
