OnePlus 5T Will Feature A 3.5mm Headphone Jack

"Are the best wireless headphones comparable to the best of the wired?" OnePlus, the Chinese company was founded in 2013 but since then it is continuously fantastic users with the best features equipped in its smartphones which comes at a pocket-friendly cost.

OnePlus looks set to follow the schedule it established previous year and introduce an iterative update to its flagship smartphone six months after launch. In the build-up to this, CEO, Pete Lau, wrote on the OnePlus forums explaining his stance on the headphone jack and its future, stating that "for the time being", the company will be sticking with it.

Wireless earbuds are simply not good enough, at least not at decent prices, and then there's the convenience factor. At one point, we thought about using another USB-C port to replace the 3.5 mm audio port.

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.

The news comes after earlier this week reported that a leaked presentation slide revealed the OnePlus 5T will be unveiled on November 16.

The standout feature of the OnePlus 5T is widely-tipped to be an all-new edge-to-edge display.

Certainly, the transition toward USB-C and Bluetooth headphones will one day make the headphone jack noncritical, particularly for flagship devices.

OnePlus looks set to use a six-inch display with a 2,160 x 1,080 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

OnePlus 5 will retain the 3.5 mm headphone jack. It stated today, "This is one of those times when we respectfully disagree on what it means to be courageous". " Other Chinese players like Xiaomi have gotten rid of the headphone jack on the Mi Mix 2 and the Mi 6 series". Pei did that because Lau, in the post detailing the rationale behind the company's decisions, said, "Sometimes, industry trends go against our core beliefs". Regarding other specifications, the upcoming phone could come powered Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of RAM, dual-camera setup, and more.
