Confirmed: OnePlus 6T has abandoned the headphone port. Here's why

The announcement of its new Type-C earbuds could suggest the firm is getting rid of the headphone jack with its next phone, and that wouldn't be too big of a surprise considering the fact that every other smartphone manufacturer is moving away from the headphone jack. He doesn't give specifics, but the company has already confirmed the 6T will have an in-display fingerprint scanner, which presumably will take up some interior space ( likely more than the current old-school scanner does).

In case you haven't guessed it already, we are talking about the 3.5mm headphone jack. We're not doing it for the sake of doing it and because everyone else is.

Ericsson bags $3.5 billion 5G network deployment contract from T
On September 10, 2018 AT&T announced that Ericsson is one of its technology suppliers for the operator's nationwide 5G network . T-Mobile has said it plans to roll out 5G service nationwide by 2020, after initial deployments in select cities this year .

In its press note unveiling the Type-C Bullets, OnePlus quotes its survey to specify that while in early 2017, 80% of users used in-jack headphones regularly, that number dropped drastically in 2018 with 59% of users switching to wireless headsets. Granted, they're not wireless, like the Bullets Wireless, but it's good to know that OnePlus is making earphones very accessible in the wake of the news that it's removing the standard jack. The company also favours Type-C over 3.5mm jack as there is minimal loss of quality in the former option.

Its 3,500 mAh battery is 200 mAh more than the OnePlus 6's battery, so users should expect a slight endurance bump. Also, the phone will have a "light sensitive fingerprint sensor under the display", an indication of the Screen Unlock feature expected on OnePlus 6T.

New Video Shows Harvey Weinstein Inappropriately Touching Rape Accuser
If he made a comment, I would try to catch it and return it in a way that felt a little safer than the way he threw it at me. In the video, Thompson is polite and friendly with Weinstein, but at one point he reportedly touched her leg off-camera.

The news comes from a TechRadar interview with OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei.

The decision does have one specific benefit: better battery life. The OnePlus 6T display will also include a "light-sensitive" fingerprint sensor embedded under the panel and a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on top for protection. There, the solution is always going to need to be a headphone jack. "We're adding more technology, improving battery life and reducing as much friction as possible by including an adapter and launching a new version of the Bullets V2", he said.
