The OnePlus 6T won't have a headphone jack

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.

"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".

Team Android just lost one of the few remaining defenders of the headphone jack. We're not doing it for the sake of doing it and because everyone else is.

The New $1,449 iPhone Won't Include A Free Headphone Dongle
The iPhone XS / XS Max pack a dual-camera setup as expected, but there are some major improvements here over the iPhone X. The iPhone Xs and iPhone XR come with NFC with reader mode functionality just like previous iPhones from Apple.

OnePlus has shared that it will introduce an updated USB Type-C variant of its existing OnePlus Bullets V2 earphones.

Compared to the Bullets V2, which were very well received, the Type-C bullets have supposed improved sound quality thanks to a built-in DAC.

You're right to wonder why to pay extra for a pair of Type-C headphones when you already have a premium 3.5mm earphones with you.

Alabama pastor cuts up Nike gear during sermon, as congregation cheers, laughs
President Trump fanned the flames of the controversy past year during a campaign speech for then Alabama Senator Luther Strange. The anthem protest movement that Kaepernick began, and Nike's decision to hire him, has caused tremendous backlash.

The news comes from a TechRadar interview with OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei. That's not insignificant, especially since OnePlus has spent years ribbing the competition over ditching it while their phones have had a 3.5mm port all of the way through their last release, the OnePlus 6.

"By removing the jack we've freed up more space, allowing us to put more new technology into the product". According to Pei, the forthcoming flagship phone will bring battery life improvements "substantial enough for users to realise". The coolest feature about that screen, though, is that it contains a "light-sensitive fingerprint sensor under the display", which Samsung and Apple have both failed to deliver (while OnePlus affiliate Vivo has). The question is, will OnePlus still receive the same backlash as the other companies that have done this? 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.

Some of this new technology could be for the in-display fingerprint reader, but we'll find out more soon.
