We have heard about many things and features of OnePlus 6T. From waterdrop notch to triple camera, in-display fingerprint and much more. But the recent development has a bigger surprise to all those people who are waiting for the device to be announced. As per the earlier reports, the device is expected to be launched in October.
As per the TechRadar interview with OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, OnePlus 6T will not feature the 3.5mm headphone jack. Today OnePlus has announced the new USB Type-C Bullets V2 headphones, which will be made available with the new upcoming device, which will be more likely to be OnePlus 6T.
In the interview, Carl Pei revealed the reason for its removal, and it’s one that may have many scratching their heads. Apparently, removing the headphone jack has allowed for more space within the chassis of the device, which in turn allows the company to “put more new technology into the product.”
One such improvement mentioned is increased battery life, presumably because a bigger battery could then be included. We already know that with an in-display fingerprint sensor too, we’re getting a slightly thicker phone.
Talking about the increasing the battery life of the device, Pei said that the improvements would be “substantial enough for users to realize.” The company made a similar promise with the upgrade from the OnePlus 3 to the OnePlus 3T, with a slightly bigger battery in the 3T.
To make people and fan digest the removal of headphone jack, company has launched the Type-C Bullets have a new DAC, which can offer a higher dynamic range, higher signal-to-noise ratio, and a lower noise floor. USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack converter will also be included in the box of the OnePlus 6T. It’s unknown if a set of earphones or headphones will be included in the box, but the company has never done so in the past.
We all know that many of the flagship phones have taken this route of removing the headphone jack and now OnePlus has entered in the segment, it will be interesting to see how the community reacts on the step?
