OnePlus 6T Might Ditch the 3.5mm Headphone Jack

Well, this is an interesting news. While launching the OnePlus 6, the company stated that users are still looking for the 3.5mm headphone jack on their smartphones. However, with the launch of these Type C Bullets earphones, OnePlus has given an indication that it might ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack with the OnePlus 6T. Also, OnePlus made this statement in the press release issued today: “When compared to the 3.5 mm jack that uses analogue, Type C headphones ensures minimal loss of quality for a superior audio outcome.”

So, the OnePlus 6T might ditch the famous 3.5mm headphone jack in favour of the USB Type-C audio.

OnePlus Conducted a Survey to Know User Interest on In-Jack Headphones

According to a survey conducted by OnePlus, in early 2017, 80% of users used in-jack headphones regularly, while, in a poll in 2018, that number dropped drastically with 59% of users switching to wireless headsets. So even if OnePlus ditches the 3.5mm headphone jack on the OnePlus 6T, it still has the OnePlus Bullets Earphones as a backup for its users. And yes, OnePlus is not discontinuing the Bullets Wireless earphones which it launched alongside the OnePlus 6.

OnePlus 6T Arriving on October 17
