Right from the newly launched Google Pixel 2 phones to iPhone 8, all the shiny new flagships have abandoned the 3.5mm audio jack on their smartphones. Not many users are happy with the OEMs decision of leaving the universal audio jack on the devices and coming up with alternative audio connectivity like wireless earphones or USB Type-C headphones.
OnePlus, today, posted an image on Facebook and Twitter that makes a big deal about the presence of 3.5mm headphone jack on it. The company emphasised on the fact that its upcoming flagship will retain the 3.5mm audio jack, which has been stripped by the other manufacturers.

The image posted by OnePlus highlight the fact that all the devices by the company are complete with 3.5mm audio jack. The OnePlus One, OnePlus 2, OnePlus X, OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, and OnePlus 5, all of these phones have featured 3.5mm audio jack. The whole point of having an audio jack is that it is convenient for the users to plug in any regular headphones on the go. The image posted by OnePlus comes with a tagline - "What do our phones have in common?" That tagline is just to tickle the readers, as the answer is too obvious.
With the image posted on the official Facebook page of the company, we are now sure that the OnePlus 5T won't let go of the 3.5mm audio jack. We are pretty sure that many users or potential buyers would be happy to see a flagship retaining the audio jack, unlike many others.
Expected to launch on November 16
The OnePlus 5T is expected to debut with a 9:18 display and bezel-less design. Regarding other specifications, the upcoming phone could come powered Snapdragon 835 SoC, 6GB of RAM, dual-camera setup, and more. The teaser poster for the OnePlus 5T was recently leaked online, and it shows the launch date on November 16. The company is yet to confirm this information, but most of the reports are also suggesting the launch date to be in the middle of this month
