Confirmed: OnePlus 6T will skip the headphone jack

OnePlus, like clockwork, has begun building up the hype for its forthcoming flagship upgrade - the OnePlus 6T.

Having previously revealed that the handset will have an in-display fingerprint scanner, it has now said that its next phone will ditch the headphone jack.

Its 3,500 mAh battery is 200 mAh more than the OnePlus 6's battery, so users should expect a slight endurance bump.

As Techradar learned in an interview with OnePlus founder Carl Pei, OnePlus has made a decision to do without the 3.5 mm jack socket on the OnePlus 6T. We're not doing it for the sake of doing it and because everyone else is. Companies like Xiaomi removed the headphone jack from their mid-range phones like the Mi A2.

Those backing the legislation say that under the bill, a nation would know exactly what it would face if caught. The executive order is being framed as an effort to demonstrate strength on the issue of election interference.

He's partly not anxious because he said that removing the headphone jack has allowed them to include a bigger battery that will be "substantial enough for users to realize". But it seems that just like Apple, HTC, and Google, OnePlus is also saying sayonara to the 3.5mm headphone jack. While a recent report suggested that the upcoming flagship smartphone will arrive with an in-display fingerprint sensor, a fresh set of leaked renders now sheds some more light on the color variants and specifications. Therefore, we already know that OnePlus 6T will be priced between $500 and $600 and that exact hardware specs that it will have to offer.

As per the listing, the OnePlus 6T will feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED waterdrop notch display with a 1080 x 2340 pixels and a 91.5 percent screen-to-body ratio. Pei did mention "improved battery life" in the interview immediately after mentioning the addition of new components after the headphone jack was removed - so we'll see.

OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei says the company's next smartphone isn't going to have a 3.5mm headphone jack, so it's probably good news the company is launching a new pair of USB Type-C headphones.

These are an updated USB-C version of the company's acclaimed Bullets V2. Thanks to a dedicated light sensor, the OnePlus 6T will apparently be capable of capturing more light in dark environments for superior low-light performance.
