OnePlus CEO confirms that the OnePlus 6T will ship with Android Pie, launch November 5th in China
On October 30, the OnePlus story continues with the next chapter as the OnePlus 6T is expected to be unveiled. Not only will we see new features such as a smaller waterdrop notch and an in-display fingerprint scanner (Screen Unlock), the phone is going to ship with Android 9 Pie out of the box. That's the word from OnePlus CEO Pete Lau, who wrote in a post on his Weibo account that his company's new phone will be pre-installed with the latest Android build, along with an improved version of the company's OxygenOS UI.

OnePlus UX lead Szymon K recently said in a company forum that the new UI is a "fast, smooth & burden-less experience with no gimmicks." He added that it be "the most distinct and intuitive version of OxygenOS yet."It includes a gesture based navigation system and adaptive battery support, which allows users to limit access to the battery for apps not used frequently.

OnePlus recently pushed out Android 9 Pie to its current handset, the OnePlus 6. Lau says that the Android 9 Pie update for the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 3 series has been delayed as more work is needed to perfect it.

The CEO's Weibo post also stated that the OnePlus 6T will launch November 5th in China. Previously, the company had mentioned a November 6th date for the new model's European release.

Who cares what version of Android it ships with if it doesn't have a headphone jack.

I don't need a headphone jack, so I care. Headphone jacks are the combustion engines of today. Electric cars are the future, but some people just won't let go :)

If I didn't have a headphone jack I couldn't enjoy amazing audio experience of a quad Dac. Some people like having things like that.
