Phones with in-display fingerprint sensors first appeared at the beginning of 2018, and the technology was somewhat unpolished at the time. 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.

Not only because of their unique and high-quality designs, but also because they come with specs that compete with some of the best in the market.

We recommend the latest OnePlus 10 Pro if you looking for 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, a solid build quality, and an 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 comes with 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 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

Other specs are equally impressive, including up to 12GB of RAM, a 6.73-inch WQHD display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and more. Xiaomi also packed its 4,600mAh battery with blistering 120W turbo charging and 50W wireless charging.

As for the camera setup, you’re looking at a trio of 50MP lenses — a primary, an ultrawide, and a telephoto. Around the front, you get a 32MP selfie shooter for good measure.

Asus ROG Phone 6 series

The ROG Phone 6 series consist of two phones. The first is the ROG Phone 6 Pro, which is the best of the two. It sports a large 6.78-inch display with a 165Hz refresh rate, a massive 6,000mAh battery with 65W charging, and great performance thanks to Snapdragon’s latest chipset.

The device comes with ultrasonic Airtriggers that are fully customizable in terms of sensitivity and button mapping. To level up your gaming experience, you can also get various accessories like Asus’ Aero Active Cooler 6 that does a great job cooling down the handset when playing games for a long time, or the Kunai 3 controller that makes the gaming experience more enjoyable for most people.

The second device in the series is the ROG Phone 6, which is more or less identical to the Pro model. The only two differences are that it tops out at 16GB of RAM instead of 18GB and that it lacks a secondary rear display, which is capable of displaying the time, text messages, logos, and other simple things. Both handsets have a fast in-display fingerprint scanner.


ROG Phone 6 specs:

  • Display: 6.78-inch, FHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12/16GB
  • Storage: 128/256/512GB

  • Battery: 6,000mAh
  • Software: Android 12

Samsung Galaxy A53

Ryan Haines / Android Authority

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

Vivo X80 Pro

Vivo’s latest X80 Pro stands out on this list. The phone’s in-display fingerprint scanner covers a much wider area than other phones. According to the company, it covers approximately 11 times the area and offers a one-touch enrolment.

But there’s more to the phone than just a large fingerprint scanner. The Vivo X80 Pro also has a massive QHD+ display, the latest and greatest chipset from Qualcomm, four cameras at the back, and a battery that supports 80W fast charging. There’s also wireless charging on board. 

The biggest issue with the phone is its lack of availability, as it has just recently been launched in global markets. It should go on sale any day now, and we’ll be sure to update this post once it does.


Vivo X80 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.78-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 256/512GB
  • Cameras: 50, 48, 12, and 8MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 4,700mAh
  • Software: Android 12

Oppo Find X5 Pro

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.


Oppo Find X5 Pro specs:

  • Display: 6.7-inch, QHD+
  • SoC: Snapdragon 8 Gen 1
  • RAM: 8/12GB
  • Storage: 256/512GB
  • Cameras: 50, 50, and 13MP
  • Front camera: 32MP
  • Battery: 5,000mAh
  • Software: Android 12
