Now, in a move that is sure to ignite a lot of debate, the Chinese brand has confirmed that the next T series phone — expected to be called the OnePlus 6T — will ditch the headphone jack once and for all.
In an interview with TechRadar, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has attempted to explain the reasoning behind the company’s “very controversial” decision, arguing that “making a great phone doesn’t mean putting every component available into the device.”
