OnePlus 6T full specs, price and design revealed through a shopping website

Massive OnePlus 6T Leak: Spces, Price and More

OnePlus, unlike many companies, made a decision to keep the jack on its flagship smartphones even in 2018, but it looks like the company will part ways with one of the most divisive features in today's smartphones when it launches the OnePlus 6T in Q4 2018.

But even in OnePlus's leaky universe, a pre-order listing going up for the phone, including price and release date, is rather unusual.

Apparently, it was time - and not because everyone else was doing it, but because the company found earlier this year that 59% of its "community" already owned wireless headphones - a figure Pei expects to have risen since.

Where do you stand on the headphone jack these days? Pei was quick to note that it is not doing it for the sake of doing it, adding that this had been an option for a long time but the timing just wasn't right, until now.

OnePlus has shared that it will introduce an updated USB Type-C variant of its existing OnePlus Bullets V2 earphones.

So you have something that you can plug into your OnePlus 6T, the company is launching the Type-C Bullets, complete with a professional DAC from Ciruss Logic.

The absence of the headphone jack from the next OnePlus smartphone was confirmed by none other than OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei.

"By removing the jack we've freed up more space, allowing us to put more new technology into the product". Pei did mention "improved battery life" in the interview immediately after mentioning the addition of new components after the headphone jack was removed - so we'll see. And finally, the website corroborated the rumours that the device will come with a "light-sensitive fingerprint sensor under the display". The earphones will be launched alongside the company's next device - expected to be called the OnePlus 6T - in the coming quarter.

But there's no denying that the 3.5mm headphone jack will be missed dearly.

Pei still believes the pros outweigh the cons. We also know that part of the removal could have been necessary to get an in-display fingerprint reader inside.
