OnePlus has confirmed that the upcoming flagship OnePlus 5T will retain the traditional headphone slot. The company took to Twitter and confirmed the news that the standard 3.5mm port will find a place in the OnePlus 5T. The main purpose for the phone to include the port is to cater to the demands of the users.
According to OnePlus, nearly 80% of OnePlus users have been using wired headphones to listen to the music. If the company switches to USB-C slot, then it will cause problems to users with a large base. From our point of view, the elimination of the headphone port will pave way for additional stuff such as an additional speaker. However, the company is not inclined to cause any problem to existing users.
Commenting on the development, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau disclosed that wireless audio technology has good potential in the long run. He also added that if you would like to make use of wireless headphones, then OnePlus smartphones have an excellent Bluetooth capability, which is better than other competing devices.
This is one of those times when we respectfully disagree on what it means to be courageous.
In the past, Apple executive Phil Schiller said that the iPhone manufacturer was courageous for ditching the headphone slot from the iPhone 7 in 2016. The company followed the same path in 2017 as well with the headphone port not finding a place in the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
Even before Apple, the erstwhile LeEco was the first smartphone manufacturer to ditch the headphone port to accommodate the USB Type-C port. The LeEco Le 2 and Le 1s Eco created tidal waves in the smartphone segment after the company failed to make any substantial profits. After Apple, Google and HTC also followed the same path. The Google Pixel 2 series and HTC U11 completely eliminated the headphone ports.
