OnePlus 5T to retain 3.5mm headphone jack

OnePlus 5T to retain 3.5mm headphone jack

While more and more OEMs "courageously" turn their backs on the age-old audio connectivity standard, from Apple to Motorola, HTC and even Razer, a handful of others "cowardly" swim against the tide, allowing their users to retain their classically wired headphones.

This is not the only instance where the company has dropped hints about the upcoming smartphone. Rumor has it that the OnePlus 5T will arrive this November, as an insider claims that a keynote event will be held on Nov. 16 to officially launch the device.

While the camera shot above is the first time the top team at OnePlus has publicly teased that a new model is on the horizon (either a OnePlus 6 or a 5T), a number of leaks have being appearing in recent weeks.

Wireless earbuds are simply not good enough, at least not at decent prices, and then there's the convenience factor. Another thing worth noting from the leak is that the OnePlus 5T has the iPhone 8's 2.5D curved glass, The Verge reported.

As reported, the Russian President's working visit will end by a private talk with Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev. President Donald Trump has lambasted the deal and refused to confirm whether his government will comply with it.

Certainly, the transition toward USB-C and Bluetooth headphones will one day make the headphone jack noncritical, particularly for flagship devices. Well, simply because the OnePlus 5 already has the fastest processor around - the Snapdragon 835.

The OnePlus 5T is expected to debut with a 9:18 display and bezel-less design. OLED display which is one of the prominent features will be seen in the upcoming OnePlus 5T. But it seems, the China-based giant is still not ready to give up on the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. It stated today, "This is one of those times when we respectfully disagree on what it means to be courageous". 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".

Pete Lau has visted over to OnePlus's official forums to discuss why the OnePlus 5T will keep the 3.5mm headphone jack around a little longer. In each of the images, the round headphone jack port is clearly visble. True, they could bump up the camera and the screen resolution, but in raw speed, a OnePlus 5T is unlikely to be any faster.
