Carl Pei, the co-founder, OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. The company has just unveiled a pair of affordable USB-C headphones. “Making a great phone doesn’t mean putting every component available into the device,” says Carl Pei.
A survey by the company revealed that more than half of OnePlus owners used wireless headphones which hints us that the OnePlus might launch a wireless Bullet headphone. Further, Pei says that the volume that was freed up by the 3.5mm jack would be used to fit new tech. Saying so, Carl Pei hints to us that the new OnePlus 6T will have improved battery life and other add-ons, but did not give away any details.
As for the new earphones, the company has launched affordable OnePlus Bullets V2 that end with a USB-C plug instead of a 3.5mm jack. The earphones are priced at Rs 1,199 and you can check out them here.
The OnePlus 6T will come bundled with a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter, so you can continue using your current set of headphones.
