The next OnePlus phone will be the OnePlus 5T and it will have a headphone jack

The next OnePlus phone will be the OnePlus 5T and it will have a 3.5mm headphone jack, so you will not need any cumbersome dongles to listen to music via your perfectly good headphones, home or car stereo.

And this is no coincidence - in fact, it's a deliberate decision by OnePlus.

And there are two reasons for OnePlus to keep the good old headphone jack: first is audio quality as wireless earbuds are simply not on par with wired ones, especially when you look at the cheaper options, and secondly, is user freedom, and with no headphone jack and with cumbersome dongles, users will certainly feel anything but free.

Here is OnePlus chief executive Pete Lau explain it all in simple terms:

So there you have it. The OnePlus 5T is real, it's obviously coming soon, and yes, the picture above is in fact the first official picture of the phone. OnePlus even has a quite hilarious name for the photo file: "This is the OnePlus 5T render no doubt about that.png".

Marketing phrases for Americans. "Based on our strong belief in freedom of choice that consumers should have in having the self empowerment to use a headphone jack or wireless and the support for democratic opinion, we have decided to keep the headphone jack" (ps: although in 6 months we will release the OPO6 without the headphone jack).

Wishing Google would just buy ONEPLUS so the Software side would updated like Pixels. Their hardware is so much better then Pixels IMHO.
