's official: OnePlus 6T will ditch the headphone jack

OnePlus co-founder confirms the OnePlus 6T will lose the headphone jack

As of now, the OnePlus Type-C Bullets or the new Bullets Wireless earphones will be an additional accessory to purchase with the OnePlus 6T smartphone. Although the name of this phone has not been confirmed yet, it is certain to be the OnePlus 6T that is expected to launch in October, probably on October 17. This confirms the fact that 3.5mm headphone jack that was part of several previous OnePlus devices, no longer will be a part of OnePlus 6T.

The OnePlus Bullets V2 are priced at $19.99, and the company promises to keep the pricing same for its new Type-C Bullets. "By removing the jack we've freed up more space, allowing us to put more new technology into the product". The company in the past had said that it was keeping the 3.5mm headphone jack in OnePlus 5T and the OnePlus 6 because its users wanted that, even though other makers like Apple and Google got rid of it.

OnePlus also says that the Type-C Bullets come with improved sound quality as they come with built-in "high-end, professional DAC" by Ciruss Logic.

The Type-C Bullets also have a metal body and the cable is made of aramid fibers that make the earphones durable and more resistant to stretching. OnePlus Type C Bullets will be launched alongside, the company's "next device" as per a press statement, which will likely be OnePlus 6T.

Hurricane Florence lashes U.S. east coast, triggers flood warnings
By Friday morning Florence had already sapped power to almost 450,000 customers in the Carolinas, emergency officials said. Forecasters said conditions will continue to deteriorate as the storm makes its way slowly inland.

Not that OnePlus said that it will never remove 3.5mm headphone jack, but that company is known to launch features based on feedback from their fan base. In addition, Pei noted that Oneplus would "include an adapter in the box", presumably meaning those interested in the company's next phone will not also have to buy compatibility with their normal daily headsets.

Accordingly, OnePlus has also announced that the next generation of their branded wired headphones will have a USB type C connection.

The decision was based around some of the metrics they see in the user base of their OnePlus handsets, with Carl saying "We found 59% of our community already owned wireless headphones earlier this year - and that was before we launched our Bullets Wireless headphones".
