OnePlus 6T is the first smartphone from OnePlus to debut without a 3.5mm audio jack. The case renders of the company’s flagship phone has revealed that it will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
However, fresh case renders of OnePlus 7 shows that it features a cutout for 3.5mm audio jack on its bottom edge.
A recent leak had revealed that the OnePlus 7 series will include as many as three smartphones such as OnePlus 7, OnePlus 7 Pro and OnePlus 7 Pro 5G. The detailed specs of these phones are unavailable. However, it appears that the OP7 Pro and OP7 Pro 5G could be powered by the Snapdragon 855 and the only difference between them could be that the Pro model could be featuring X50 5G modem to carry support for 5G networks. There is no confirmation on whether the OnePlus 7 phone will be also powered by Snapdragon 855 or a less powerful SoC. The OP7 model could be cheaper than its Pro siblings.
The newly surfaced case images may belong to the OnePlus 7 smartphone, and not the Pro/Pro 5G versions. The top edge of the phone has a rectangular cutout for the pop-up selfie. The other round-shaped cutout on the same edge could be for the microphone.
The rear design of the new case is different from the previously spotted ones which features cutouts for a SIM card slot, a USB-C por and an external speaker. The new images show the bottom edge features cutouts for an external speaker, a 3.5mm audio ack and USB-C. There is a large vertical cutout on the case for the smartphone’s triple camera setup. There is a possibility that non-Pro edition of the upcoming OnePlus 7 smartphone may retain the 3.5mm audio jack, while its Pro edition may lack it.
It is speculated that the OnePlus 7 Pro could be coming with a notch-less and curved OLED screen of 6.67 inches. If this rumor is true, the OnePlus 7 may feature a flat display. The Snapdragon 855 mobile platform will be powering the smartphone along with 8 GB of RAM. The Android 9 Pie OS comes loaded on the device. It may come with a triple camera module that includes a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 main sensor, a 16-megapixel secondary lens and an 8-megapixel third sensor. The handset has an internal storage of 256 GB.
It is advisable to digest the speculations on the cheaper OnePlus 7 phone with 3.5mm audio jack and wait for further leaks to confirm on its existence.
