Reason for Removing the Headphone Jack from OnePlus 6T?
The main reason OnePlus itself has to announce maybe during the launch of OnePlus 6T but as of now, In an interview Carl Pei revealed the reason for its removal, and it’s clearly not something everyone would agree to it.
Apparently, removing the headphone jack will allow more space within the device internal componential area, which in turn allows the company to “put more new technology into the product”. One such improvement mentioned is the increased battery life, presumably because a bigger battery could then be included.
Enhancements with the new Type-C Bullets
The Type-C Bullets have a few enhancements made by OnePlus, which introduces DAC, which can offer a higher dynamic range, higher signal-to-noise ratio, and a lower noise floor.
USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack converter will also be included in the box of the OnePlus 6T. It’s unknown if a set of earphones or headphones will be included in the box, but the company has never done so in the past.
