There is a lot of news surfacing online regarding the upcoming OnePlus 5T, one of the much-awaited smartphones of this year. Now we got the official confirmation regarding the flagship device that the device will have a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you will not need any dongle to listen to music through the headphones. And this is not a coincidence; in fact, it is a deliberate decision of OnePlus.
There are two reasons why OnePlus chooses to keep the old headphone jack. First the audio quality, since wireless headphones are simply not up to par with wiring, especially when considering the cheapest options. Second, we have the freedom of the user. The executive director of OnePlus explains everything in simple terms:
“Wireless headphones are not yet available to provide the same audio quality. … it was not worth depriving our users of the freedom to use their favorite headphones and accessories. That’s why we are proud to announce that we keep the headset for the OnePlus 5T and we are confident that our product decisions for our next device will offer the best possible experience.”
These words of the head of the company come accompanied by the first official image of the OnePlus 5T, showing precisely the audio mini jack integrated into one of the smartphone’s profiles.
When is the OnePlus 5T presented?
Now we know that the OnePlus 5T is real, it is obvious to think that will come soon, but the brand still has “no loose garment” about when will the smartphone be to the online store officially. In his day, Evan Blass, one of the most reputed leakster of the international scene, revealed that the mobile will be released before December. According to the filtration, the OnePlus 5T will be presented before the end of this month, between November 20 and the last days of November.
Most likely in the second half, with November 20 as the date set for all bets, is the time Pete Lau shows all the specifications of the OnePlus 5T, besides the presence of an audio jack and the rumored full screen.
