In the post Mr Lau said: “In the past, we’ve made some jokes on this subject, but today I wanted to dig deeper into our decision to keep the 3.5 mm headphone jack.”Whether it’s in the area of hardware or software, our focus is on producing superior product experiences.”Every feature, removed or added, is based on our understanding of user needs. For the time being, we think it’s best to stick with the headphone jack.”So why is OnePlus bucking the trend and keeping this popular way or connecting headphones?Lau says it’s partly down to audio quality and giving customers the option to choose how they connect their audio devices.

The OnePlus 5T will have a headphone port
“When we surveyed the OnePlus community, 70% of users told us that their priority was sound quality. On the whole, wireless earbuds aren’t there yet to provide the same quality of audio.” Said Lau.”Nearly 80% of our users use in-jack headphones and 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.”In other words, is it worth the trade off? And our assessment was no, this design decision was not worth taking away our users’ freedom to use their favourite earphones and accessories.”
Along with the headphone port another standout feature of the OnePlus 5T is widely-tipped to be an all-new edge-to-edge display.




According to the latest leaks, OnePlus will shave the bezels around the screen in a bid to keep up with the competition.

Apple, Samsung, Huawei and Samsung have all released phones recently which feature edge-to-edge screens and OnePlus won’t want to fall too far behind.

OnePlus looks set to use a six-inch display with a 2,160 x 1,080 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio.

According to a leaked presentation slide, OnePlus will highlight this new design with the tagline “Larger Display. Same Footprint.”

If the leaked information is accurate, it’s possible the OnePlus 5T will be available to buy at end of November or early December.

Prices for the OnePlus 5 stated at £449, so it’s likely the 5T will launch at a higher price point.
