As such, OnePlus doesn't see a point to the trade-off. But the company backed off those efforts since almost 80 percent of its customers use the traditional headphone jack and it wants to provide choice for customers. In the past, the company has contemplated replacing the 3.5mm jack with a second USB-C port for wired headphones but ultimately came to the conclusion that this was not worth the trade-off to user freedom. That's why we're proud to announce that we're keeping the headphone jack for the OnePlus 5T... Just take comfort in knowing that you won't have to forego that familiar plug to get a modern Android smartphone.at least, not for a while. The most notable feature of the OnePlus 5T is an nearly edge-to-edge screen that is made to look even classier by the slimmer bezels. The new flagship is expected to come with a screen size between 5.7"-6".
The one major change to the OnePlus 5T will be around the display.
Obviously this isn't confirmation from OnePlus that the 5T will come with the tech, but this kind of heavy handed hint toward the tech being present would surely upset some fans if the company then chose to drop the audio tech from its upcoming device. A leaked image from GizChina indicated the launch date for the 5T. But it seems, the China-based giant is still not ready to give up on the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. It will be a flagship smartphone, dubbed the OnePlus 5T, which will refine the OnePlus 5 launched earlier this year.
Certainly, the transition toward USB-C and Bluetooth headphones will one day make the headphone jack noncritical, particularly for flagship devices. He added to it: "Disagreeing on what it means to be courageous".
According to the latest leaks, OnePlus will shave the bezels around the display to compete with the likes of the LG V30, Galaxy S8, Pixel 2 XL and iPhone X. The processor will be the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 one, given there's no 836 coming this year. OnePlus 5T will likely sport a more expensive price tag, and we saw this trend with the OnePlus 3T as well.
