    I am surprised to see that no more headphone jacks installed with new devices .. yeah it looks cool with Bluetooth headphone but many want to use Wired only ... it's cost worthy to use with your Laptop + mobile device. and Wired headphones are more easy and handy for swapping between devices .

    I am really looking forward to have new devices with Headphone jack.

    You have to upgrade buy OnePlus Nord CE for headphone jack.

    Why didn't you researched it before buying a new device?

    OEM'S want to sell the wireless accessories also. So, there is a conflict of interest, thatswhy headphone jack is out.

    Multiple reasons. Cost. It takes space. And of course wanting to sell their own Bluetooth gear.
    Then it's debatable if all jacks have good enough output to be better than high quality Bluetooth in terms of sound quality.

    You can get conversion dongles. I think you'll find higher end phones won't bring them back in newer models.
