OnePlus 6T confirmed to have no headphone jack

OnePlus 6T confirmed to have no headphone jack

Carl Pei, the co-founder for the company explained that the company is not removing the 3.5mm headphone jack just "for the sake of" it to follow what other smartphone makers are doing.

OnePlus is expected to unveil the new Bullets along with the OnePlus 6T, which is rumored to boast an on-screen fingerprint scanner.

A hot potato: Is the 3.5mm headphone jack in phones going the way of the dinosaurs?

Team Android just lost one of the few remaining defenders of the headphone jack. After including the long-used port on the excellent OnePlus 6 handset, we've now got confirmation that the highly anticipated successor, the OnePlus 6T, will ditch it. While the current OnePlus 6 packs a 3300mAh capacity battery, the OnePlus 6T will include a bigger 3500mAh capacity battery with the manufacturer's VOOC fast charging support.

"We found 59 per cent of our community already owned wireless headphones earlier this year - and that was before we launched our Bullets Wireless headphones".

"Two years ago the percentage [of wireless headphones owners] would have been much lower and it would have caused a lot of friction for our users", he told TechRadar. Like all previous OnePlus smartphones, the 6T will also not include a microSD card slot for further expansion.

Light-sensitive fingerprint sensor under the display. In addition to the in-display fingerprint scanner, Pei pointed out that OnePlus is planning to improve the battery backup by a "substantial" margin in the upcoming devices by the company.

Thoughts on leaving the headphone jack behind, friends? Unless there's a better way to reliably have both power (USB power) in and audio out at once.

That changes with the OnePlus 6T when it arrives next month and OnePlus seems to be OK with the move. OnePlus, unlike many companies, made a decision to keep the jack on its flagship smartphones even in 2018, but it looks like the company will part ways with one of the most divisive features in today's smartphones when it launches the OnePlus 6T in Q4 2018.
