OnePlus 5T will keep headphone slot

OnePlus 5T will keep headphone slot

According to rumors, the OnePlus 5T will have a similar pairing, but with a slight bump to a 20 MP + 20 MP dual camera. Today, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has officially confirmed that the company's next phone will indeed by the OnePlus 5T. So, take it as the first official render of the flagship. "Must be a great camera".

"What phone is he taking that photo with?..." That's why we're proud to announce that we're keeping the headphone jack for the OnePlus 5T...

Days after the OnePlus 5T leaked out, the OnePlus CEO is ready to talk about why it will have a 3.5mm headphone jack. In the post, Pete Lau dives deeper into the company's decision to keep the 3.5mm jack around. That's basically what Google had to do last month, when it removed the Pixel's headphone jack just a year after, yes, mocking Apple for getting rid of it.

Lau explained: "When we surveyed the OnePlus community, 70 per cent of users told us that their priority was sound quality". The quality can be comparable but the options "under $200 category" get limited.

KitGuru Says: If you are planning on buying on buying a OnePlus phone this year or next year, then it looks like you can hang on to your wired 3.5mm headphones without fear. "The advantage to USB-C is that it would have let us further slim down our flagships".

However, a number of things swayed OnePlus. " Other Chinese players like Xiaomi have gotten rid of the headphone jack on the Mi Mix 2 and the Mi 6 series". Having two USB-C ports would be an interesting first for OnePlus, though. That's why we prioritise the user and make good technology accessible. "And our assessment was no, this design decision was not worth taking away our users' freedom to use their favorite earphones".

Lau said wireless technology has "a lot of potential", but OnePlus were being "courageous" to go against industry trends.

The internal presentation claims the much-anticipated smartphone will also be exclusive to Amazon.

Could it be the OnePlus 5 released earlier this year?

The one major change to the OnePlus 5T will be around the display.

The main difference between the 5 and 5T will definitely be on the front.

That is a bit ironic considering that OnePlus was pretty quick to copy the iPhone 7 with the OnePlus 5. A leaked image from GizChina indicated the launch date for the 5T.
