OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has already revealed a number of details about the upcoming device. In an interview with CNET, Lau officially confirmed that the OnePlus 6T will include an all new in-screen fingerprint sensor which will help users to unlock the device with ease. And, it will not include wireless charging support and IP rating. Lau mentions that OnePlus has taken a ‘tough’ decision to remove headphone jack as well from the upcoming device.
He said, “The most difficult task in the day-to-day is… finding a balance in what’s ultimately going to be part of the end product and what has to be said ‘No’ to.” Another reason to not include the headphone jack is the fact that the smartphone is 0.45mm thicker than the OnePlus 6.
