    In India the Price of Base Model OP6 is 35K. So Will there be any Price Hike this time? As OP5 & 5T had the same Price.

    Forward thinking? Eliminating the jack was all about marketing. Apple had purchased Beats Audio, and this allowed Apple to score a large market share on Beats' heavily marked-up, mid-grade headphones.

    It was brilliant from a profit standpoint. It was (and is) consumer hostile. (88% still want the jack... Anyone remember that OnePlus survey?)

    I have nothing against BT audio (I use it too, mainly at the gym). But I still need the jack. I despise overpriced dongles, and sometimes need to charge my phone while listening. The jack provides better audio quality. I prefer the jack for home stereo, long flights, and other times when I just want sound without added BT annoyance).

    Apple's marketing department has pulled it off once again. But there is no reason anyone should have copied them on this "trend."

    "We're adding an adapter to the box, allowing you to use your 3.5mm headphones normally,"

    So at least dongle hell won't be a complete mess like this:


    but essentially we're all screwed if we jump ship?

    I got the OnePlus 6 as a alternative to Samsung but if they remove the audio jack I will happily give my money to a brand that keeps essential features like an audio jack, I feel that companies that are doing this are following a pointless trend set by apple and there excuses are typically poor, like a few extra milli amps on the battery or a thinner phone, and in my opinion phones are as thin as I would like them to be and dash charging is so Handy what's the point in making the batteries bigger and slowing charge times.

    I saved money for oneplus 6t, but now if oneplus 6T is not coming with headphone jack, i will seriously have to consider other companies / brands especially MI. One of the reasons for buying oneplus was headphone jack ...no 3.5 mm jack no oneplus 6T...
    Oneplus still time to incorporate 3.5 mm headphone jack ...delay the launch and re-introduce 3.5 mm jack else your 6T sale will be atleast 50% - 60% less...
