OnePlus 5T teased again by the company, will keep the headphone jack

first_imgOnePlus has been a little cheeky for the past few weeks, teasing images on its social media accounts that suggest it is launching the OnePlus 5T soon. On Tuesday, the company made it pretty clear in a ‘pun intended’ tweet that the successor to the OnePlus 5 is on its way. The post literally shows five cups of ‘tea’ (as seen above) with the OnePlus logo inscribed on each cup. Subtle, right?Prior to the latest OnePlus 5 ‘tea’ tweet, the company also posted an image that showed the bottom of its entire smartphone lineup with the caption, “What do our phones have in common?” This would refer to the 3.5mm headphone jack that has been present since the first OnePlus phone, and based on the timing of the tweet, it also hints that the upcoming OnePlus 5T will keep the headphone jack, for anyone who was worried.What do our phones have in common? ?? pic.twitter.com/sd9PcSdptw- OnePlus (@oneplus) November 1, 2017OnePlus has expressed in the past that it loves the headphone jack and will not be parting with it any time soon. With the OnePlus 5T expected to be the first in the company’s lineup to sport a full-screen display, rumours erupted that the company would ditch the headphone jack. It is understandable to think so as a number of near bezel-less smartphones this year like the Pixel 2 XL and iPhone X have dropped the jack in order to fit in a larger battery. But OnePlus’ tweet suggests the OnePlus 5T will keep the jack much like the Galaxy S8 and the LG G6 before.advertisementThe upcoming OnePlus 5T has been has seen a number of rumours and was recently (partially) revealed by tipster Evan Blass.
