OnePlus 6T confirmed to have no headphone jack

OnePlus 6T confirmed to have no headphone jack

OnePlus and Samsung are two of the notable companies that still make phones with a headphone jack, though OnePlus could be getting rid of it with the OnePlus 6T soon. Just as I was with the Pixel 2, I find myself disappointed that one of the last headphone jack holdouts in the smartphone business is about to fold. We're not doing it for the sake of doing it and because everyone else is.

Now is right time to make the move, said Pei, as 59% of the OnePlus community already own wireless headphones and that figure is increasing.

OnePlus is also touting a number of improvements and upgrades for the newly unveiled Type-C Bullets compared to the already powerful "classic" Bullets V2, including a higher dynamic range, higher signal-to-noise ratio, and lower noise floor. The company also favours Type-C over 3.5mm jack as there is minimal loss of quality in the former option.

Having said that, we suggest you take all this information with a proverbial grain of salt as it doesn't come directly from OnePlus or from a source that has a record of revealing accurate details.

This gesture was just one way that Meghan has tried to keep up with the few remaining friends she has left. They watched the ceremony with pride, and home some day to welcome Meghan and her prince to Georgia.

TechRadar sat down with OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei to discuss why the company is ditching the headphone jack from its "next smartphone". Inside the OnePlus 6T box will be a Type-C to 3.5mm adaptor so you do not have to throw away your earphones.

"By removing the jack we've freed up more space, allowing us to put more new technology into the product". He didn't specifically say what that new technology will be, but he did say that it will offer more battery life, so it seems that OnePlus will be squeezing in a larger battery.

A few days back, OnePlus officially confirmed that its next flagship smartphone will feature an in-display fingerprint sensor. The question is, will OnePlus still receive the same backlash as the other companies that have done this?

But there's no denying that the 3.5mm headphone jack will be missed dearly. We also know that part of the removal could have been necessary to get an in-display fingerprint reader inside.
