OnePlus 6T design revealed: in-display fingerprint scanner, no headphone jack

Ahead of its expected announcement on October 17, the upcoming OnePlus 6T has just leaked out in all its glory in a new set of 360-degree renders created by reliable tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer, better known by his Twitter handle of @OnLeaks.
Following in the footsteps of the OnePlus 6, which launched back in May, the new OnePlus 6T once again makes use of a tall display that occupies most of the front panel. As expected, a slightly slimmer chin is present towards the bottom, while the wide notch present on the previous device has been replaced which a much smaller waterdrop-like one complete with subtle curves. This new notch is just big enough to house the front-facing camera and proximity sensor. The in-ear speaker, on the other hand, has now been moved to the very edge of the frame. Interestingly, though, an LED notification light doesn't appear to be included.
Moving over to the rear, these newest renders once again dismiss rumors of a triple-camera layout. Instead, the dual-camera vertical setup combined with the unibody glass design creates a look that is almost identical to the original. In fact, the only difference is the lack of a rear-facing fingerprint scanner – the security feature is now integrated into the display up front.
3.5mm headphone jack. This will force users to make use of the USB Type-C port which is positioned towards the bottom of the frame alongside a microphone and a speaker. Moving up the sides, the left is home to an elongated volume rocker, and the right includes a power key and the signature Alert Slider.Elsewhere on the smartphone, the images confirm the lack of a
Much like the original OnePlus 6, the 6T is expected to ship with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 on the inside along with the choice of 6GB or 8GB of RAM. Speaking of choices, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB internal storage options are expected to be sold too. Lastly, as this is a OnePlus device, consumers can expect stock Android 9 Pie straight out of the box alongside the minimal Oxygen OS 9.0 overlay on top.

MicroSD cards? LOL! Most $9.99/mo music streaming services offer an offline feature to store tracks. Wired headphones? LOL! I thought DVD's players were still in style. This is a concept you can't let go...LOL!

Not everone wants to use music streaming services and prefer to carry thier own music on SD card. As for headphones, well no matter how you spin it wireless is still not up there with the quality of wired, plus you have to charge an extra device. I have been using wireless headphones myself for the last 5 years but still use the headphone jack to connect the phone in my work van. I can totally understand why people still want these features.

Considering how many jack-less phones are being sold each day, it's not an issue for most people. But I would argue that they still should have included the jack, since their users voted for it in their poll.

I'm convinced that FaceID is the future. The problem with fingerprint scanners is that if your fingers are wet or have something on them the scanner will not read. If there is too much condensation on the glass on a rainy day, watch people put in passcodes.

With the Oneplus 6t not having a headphone jack, are Samsung, LG, and Vivo the only manufacturers left to still include a headphone jack on their flagship smartphones?

Headphone jacks are gone. Get yourself a Bluetooth headset. You will be happier for it. SD cards... If 128GB isn't doing it for you, you are in a niche market. By all means go buy a Note 9. And if the camera takes a step up from the 1+6, then this is a top rung flagship contender.

Ah, another company with mindless copying and against choice. Sad. I hope they at-least have stereo speakers and IP rating to show for the missing headphone jack.

Right, because no one copies each other on a rectangular phone... oh no, they must have copied the rectangle too! Pure evil..
