  • Massive OnePlus 6T Leak: Spces, Price and More

He doesn't give specifics, but the company has already confirmed the 6T will have an in-display fingerprint scanner, which presumably will take up some interior space ( likely more than the current old-school scanner does).

Today, OnePlus founder Carl Pei went on the record to say the company's next device - presumably the 6T - will not have a headphone jack.

"If we were to do that [remove the jack] two years ago, the percentage [of wireless headphones owners] would have been much lower and it would have caused a lot of friction for our users", Pei told TechRadar. Just as I was with the Pixel 2, I find myself disappointed that one of the last headphone jack holdouts in the smartphone business is about to fold. Pei was quick to note that it is not doing it for the sake of doing it, adding that this had been an option for a long time but the timing just wasn't right, until now. Granted, they're not wireless, like the Bullets Wireless, but it's good to know that OnePlus is making earphones very accessible in the wake of the news that it's removing the standard jack.

Why a weaker, Category 2 hurricane is still unsafe
Little change in strength is expected before the center reaches the coast, with weakening expected after the center moves inland. Duke Energy Corp. expected between 25 percent and 75 percent of its 4 million customers would lose power in the Carolinas.

The Type-C Bullets continue the company's signature earphones design and improved audio quality with built-in high-end, professional DAC by Ciruss Logic.

If that wasn't enough of a confirmation, another image of what appears to be the official box cover of the phone showcases the front schematics of the phone, complete with the words "This is for you". Like all previous OnePlus smartphones, the 6T will also not include a microSD card slot for further expansion. However, that will be compensated for with a bigger battery and, therefore, better battery life. The question is, will OnePlus still receive the same backlash as the other companies that have done this? There, the solution is always going to need to be a headphone jack. Referring to the "new technology", we already know that the company is planning to add an in-display fingerprint scanner in the upcoming device.
