One Plus co-founder confirms the One Plus 6T will lose the headphone jack

The company introduced the new headphones after making an announcement that it will be dropping the 3.5 Headphone jack on the forthcoming flagship device.
The trend to remove the jack has been ongoing for some time but until now, the move didn't seem right according to Pei, saying "If we were to do that [remove the jack] two years ago, the percentage [of wireless headphones owners] would have been much lower and it would have caused a lot of friction for our users". "I don't understand how losing the headphone jack can be a sign of progress", reads another forum comment, questioning the company's suggestion that the OnePlus 6T will be its best device to date in every aspect.
OnePlus 6T may come with a new and improved design but it will not be without trade-offs. For OnePlus, it's another move that feels like a continuation of the OnePlus 6 strategy: removing the features that makes the phone unique. "OP6 [sic] will be my last OnePlus device", wrote one user on Twitter. The company went from a metal device with slim bezels and a headphone jack to a fragile all-glass device, yet another notch design, and now no headphone jack.
Interestingly, though Type-C connectors are technologically superior to the 3.5mm audio jack, the latter is still the more popular and widely-used connector.
An overwhelming 88 percent of the 19,000 participants said they wanted the headphone jack.
Accordingly, OnePlus has also announced that the next generation of their branded wired headphones will have a USB type C connection. The supposed tradeoff is more battery life, which is definitely something we'll test when the OnePlus 6T comes out. Rumor has it the OnePlus 6T will be based on the Oppo R17, which has a unique teardrop-shaped camera cutout instead of the boring iPhone X-style notch that everyone else is using. Since a 3.5mm port takes up a considerable amount of space inside the body, OnePlus could have chosen to get rid of it to keep an identical profile to the OP6. Pictures of the upcoming OnePlus smartphone recently appeared on Chinese social media website Weibo that also suggest the device could feature a tiny waterdrop notch.
