OnePlus 5T Name, 3.5mm Jack Presence All But Confirmed

This is somewhat true, although wireless options are continually getting better. OnePlus has been posting a number of promotions on its social media channels all hinting at the launch of the upcoming device.

The OnePlus 5T is the next phone due to arrive following on from the OnePlus 5; tipsters say it'll be launched in late November, November 16 has been mentioned, while other sources say it'll arrive after November 20 - one plausible explanation is it could launch on November 16 and arrive at retail after November 20. It cites both usage habits (almost 80 percent of OnePlus users rely on 3.5mm headphones) and its own analysis.

Pictures they have tweeted appear to be the first official shots taken with the OnePlus 5T.

Wireless earbuds are simply not good enough, at least not at decent prices, and then there's the convenience factor.

Lau said: "The question we asked ourselves was whether replacing the 3.5 mm jack with a USB-C port would bring a noticeably improved experience for our users". Another thing worth noting from the leak is that the OnePlus 5T has the iPhone 8's 2.5D curved glass, The Verge reported.

The OnePlus 5T is about to be announced but we don't know when exactly. Our initial reaction to Pei's tweet was that the joker is the card in the pack that stands out, which we took as meaning the OnePlus phones will stand out against competition because it will retain the headphone jack.

Certainly, the transition toward USB-C and Bluetooth headphones will one day make the headphone jack noncritical, particularly for flagship devices.

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

The OnePlus 5T smartphone is expected to come with a 6-inch display with 2160 x 1080 pixels resolution and an aspect ratio of 18:9. He added to it: "Disagreeing on what it means to be courageous". Its decision to keep the headphone jack, and its reasoning behind it, will also likely continue this rather heated debate on this matter for some time to come. Sometimes, industry trends go against our core beliefs. The common feature? A headphone jack.
