The OnePlus 5T definitely has a headphone jack

The OnePlus 5T definitely has a headphone jack

This retaining of headphone jack will make the company more in touch with its fans and buyers, as investing some more amount in wirelesses buds will not be chosen as a good option by most of the buyers.

OnePlus managed to create lots of buzz around its products over the last few years, but is still a relatively small company that relies a lot on word of mouth and direct engagement with its customers - which is why executives routinely take informal surveys to have the users' opinion on the latest tech trends, like the headphone jack's removal.

Twitter leaker EvLeaks has also said the OnePlus 5T will be ready to launch toward the end of November this year.

At least "for the time being", CEO Pete Lau and his team of user-adaptable engineers "think it's best to stick with the headphone jack". Pretty much every major phone company is ditching the headphone jack in the name of thinness, and while OnePlus isn't committing to keep it around forever, it is intentionally stirring things up when it may well choose to drop the headphone jack in the not-too-distant future.

It looks like the OnePlus 5T release date is just around the corner and, what's more, it looks like it'll be a more significant update than the OnePlus 3T was back in November 2016.

OnePlus has a new device coming. Retailers in the US are said to not have any OnePlus 5 variants available, while the OnePlus 5 gold variant is the only one remaining in the United Kingdom markets. The advantage to this move it that going with USB-C would allow for a thinner device. He confirms that there is definitely a 3.5mm headphone jack. Like the Mi Mix 2, S8 series, etc, OnePlus 5T's display could be bigger with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

Since the launch of the iPhone 7, the future of the headphone jack on mobile devices has been up in the air. He added to it: "Disagreeing on what it means to be courageous". In a detailed post, OnePlus explains its decision to retain the audio jack on the OnePlus 5T.

Previous OnePlus 5T leaks already revealed that the device will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, the same mobile chipset used by the current OnePlus 5 handset.
