OnePlus 6T will not have a headphone jack

OnePlus 6T will not have a headphone jack
As we have learned more about the upcoming OnePlus 6T, this smartphone has become increasingly attractive. A possible launch through a US operator? UU.? A fingerprint scanner on the screen? Possibly an even smaller notch? What could not be loved? However, in a TechRadar interview with OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei, something slightly more controversial has been revealed: the OnePlus 6T will not have a headphone jack.

The company has also announced Bullets Type-C at the same time, presumably intended for those who will pick up the OnePlus 6T.

In the interview, Carl Pei revealed the reason for his elimination and it is possible that many scratch their heads. Apparently, removing the headphone jack has allowed more space inside the phone's chassis. This in turn allows the company to "put more new technology into the product".

A mentioned improvement is the longer battery life, presumably because a larger battery could then be included. We already know that with a fingerprint sensor on the screen too, we received a slightly thicker phone.

Although TechRadar could not get any information about details about the increase in battery life, Pei said the improvements would be "substantial enough for users to notice". The company made a similar promise with upgrading the OnePlus 3 to the OnePlus 3T; with a slightly larger battery in 3T.

Headphones Bullets type-C

To help soften the blow of removing the headphone jack, OnePlus will release an updated version of its Bullets wireless headset; and also just confirmed the launch of Bullets type-C headphones.

Type C bullets have a new DAC, which can offer a higher dynamic range, a higher signal-to-noise ratio and a lower noise floor. The USB-C 3.5mm headphone jack converter will also be included in the OnePlus 6T box. It is not known if a pair of earphones or headphones will be included in the box; although the company never did it in the past.

Pei has cited the increasing use of wireless technologies of the impulse factor in the elimination of the headphone jack. Interestingly, a previous survey by him on Twitter a few months ago found that the company's fans were very supportive of maintaining it.

Apparently, 59% of the OnePlus community already has wireless headsets of some kind; that are only expected to increase. As other manufacturers began to eliminate it two years ago, it would not make sense to remove the headphone jack due to its ubiquity among the OnePlus community at that time.

What else will OnePlus 6T bring?

The OnePlus 6T has been the victim of the latest leaks published on the Weibo social network. New images in which you can see the sales box of the device from all possible angles. The mobile in physical format does not appear anywhere, however, several conclusions can be drawn from these images. First of all we can appreciate the incorporation of a completely renovated notch in the shape of a drop of water. Undoubtedly, the best way to introduce the notch in order to make the most of the surface of the screen.

You will have a 6.4-inch screen with a resolution of 1080×2340. As for internal specifications, the new Chinese device will base its performance on a Snapdragon 845 processor. Also 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM, and 64 GB, 128 GB or 256 GB of storage. Your CPU, the Adreno 630.

Triple camera

Although, undoubtedly, one of the biggest unknowns lies in the rear camera. At first, everything seemed to indicate that the OnePlus 6T would maintain the same structure of double camera of 16+20 megapixels in the back. However, the new information ensures that it could switch to a triple camera system with TOF 3D. It would be very similar to the OPPO R17 Pro.

Availability and price

This OnePlus 6T will be presented on October 17, so something more than a month before it sees the light we already know practically everything. As had also been said in the networks, it seems that the starting price will rise, in this case we are talking about 661.76 USD.
