OnePlus Announces Type-C Bullets Earphones

OnePlus 6T pre-order listing 'confirms' handset's full specs

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.

Today, OnePlus founder Carl Pei went on the record to say the company's next device - presumably the 6T - will not have a headphone jack. We're not doing it for the sake of doing it and because everyone else is. "We found that 59% of our community already owned wireless headphones earlier this year..." The company also favours Type-C over 3.5mm jack as there is minimal loss of quality in the former option.

"Our original goal with the Type-C Bullets was to bring the audio standards of the Bullets V2 to a pair of Type-C earphones".

If that wasn't enough of a confirmation, another image of what appears to be the official box cover of the phone showcases the front schematics of the phone, complete with the words "This is for you". To appease its consumers, OnePlus will include a 3.5mm adapter and begin to sell $20 USB-C versions of its Bullets headphones.

Photos of the water bottles covered in a blue tarmac circulated social media on Tuesday, the same day that U.S. For Maria, there was a large gap between when the first loan was approved and when loans started ramping up.

And the reason for removing the headphone jack is simple and obvious; it frees up space to put "new technology" into the device.

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

All of these features are said to be packed into the OnePlus 6T for $569 (£440), however this price point, like the other unverified rumours throughout this article, should be taken with a pinch of salt. The smartphone will feature a "light sensitive" under-display fingerprint sensor. That's one too many benefits worth sacrificing one feature over. There, the solution is always going to need to be a headphone jack. If not in other cases, users will definitely miss the jack when you have to plug in your headphones and the charger at the same time while playing games or streaming online. We also know that part of the removal could have been necessary to get an in-display fingerprint reader inside.
