It’s been two years since Apple courageously removed the headphone jack from the iPhone 7, and it’s certainly taken its lumps over it. But Apple stuck to its guns, and today you can pretty much count the number of mainstream Android phones with a 3.5mm jack on one hand.
And now there’s one less in the pack. OnePlus has announced that it’s upcoming handset, the OnePlus 6T, won’t have a headphone jack. In an interview with Techradar, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei divulged that “now is the right time” to dump the legacy audio port, “as it’ll benefit the majority of our users while keeping the downside low.”
