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

OnePlus 6T

That outline looks familiar. Then, the company backed its decision by saying most OnePlus users weren't using NFC.

OnePlus is working on a followup to the OnePlus 6, the OnePlus 6T. While we are yet to know the exact launch date of the device, the company has started teasing by revealing key features. The latest news is not so great. OnePlus was one of the few smartphone brands that retained the headphone jack on its flagships. However, OnePlus confirmed that the new headphones will be launched alongside the new flagship device in the fourth quarter of 2018. By removing the jack, the smartphone manufacturer has now freed up more space to make the product more technologically advanced.

"One of the big things is something our users have asked us for, improved battery life", he added.

It's worth noting that Pei never specifically referred to the "new OnePlus handset" as the OnePlus 6T in the interview, but all signs point to that being the next OnePlus device. The company went from a metal device with slim bezels and a headphone jack to a fragile all-glass device, yet another notch design, and now no headphone jack. The company has also confirmed in an interview that they would be ditching the 3.5mm headphone jack on the OnePlus 6T. OnePlus was speculated to ditch the headphone jack on its OnePlus 6, but later the company said it will not do so. The results were overwhelming. The heart of the matter is to deliver an optimal set of features, whilst eliminating superfluous attributes like a 3.5 mm audio jack. The supposed tradeoff is more battery life, which is definitely something we'll test when the OnePlus 6T comes out.

OnePlus 6T is also going to change how you unlock the phone.
