If you have been paying attention to our previous report on OnePlus 6, you’d know that it’s going to be ‘marvelous.’ But today Pete Lau, CEO of OnePlus, confirmed that the upcoming flagship would NOT come with the popular 3.5mm headphone jack.
In fact, this news is tied to Carl Pei’s survey on Twitter from March 13, 2018, where he decided to ask OnePlus fans, “Do you like headphone jacks? (2018 edition)”
Out of the 19,374 votes cast in this survey, a staggering 88% voted ‘Yes’ and the remaining voted ‘No.’

Is Apple the trendsetter?
We know that almost every other OEM out there is copying Apple by leaps & bounds, so does OnePlus. But ditching the popular 3.5mm headphone jack didn’t go down so well with Apple the last time, so there’s an air of uncertainty.
Besides the revelation about adopting OnePlus Bullets Wireless headphones, Pete Lau also announced that the proverbial OnePlus 6 will have an option to hide the notch.
Where’s the proof?
Among the product listing, you can see “OnePlus Bullets Wireless” registered under the “Unique Products” category and published only yesterday on April 4, 2018.
This could only mean OnePlus 6 since its launch is confirmed for June. The OnePlus Bullets Wireless headphones will support Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity.

Pricing: Expensive, you say?
Being the flagship, OnePlus 6 is expected to be the company’s most expensive phone yet! Pete Lau throws a hint with this tweet from March 23.
And the theme of 2018 is… overpriced flagships. ?
