Since Apple dropped the headphone jack with the iPhone 7 last year, the idea of the missing audio jack can be a put off for many. The jack has become a hot-button issue for some buyers as more phone makers have stripped it out. But looks like OnePlus knows that well. Yesterday, the company tweeted a picture showing off the bottom edge of all its phones till now, and a caption “What do our phones have in common?” followed by a music emoji. This is a clear hint at OnePlus 5T retaining its headphone jack.

Starting from the bottom we can see the OnePlus One, OnePlus Two, OnePlus X, OnePlus 3/3T, OnePlus 5 and then OnePlus 5T on the top. And we can see that all of them feature the 3.5mm audio jack.

There’s another teaser, which does not reveal anything about the smartphone, but just a little something to keep the teasers going.

This tweet is one of the many posts OnePlus and the company heads have been sharing lately to tease the upcoming smartphone. Few days ago, OnePlus CEO Carl Pei took to Twitter to tease a camera sample from the OnePlus 5T. While he doesn’t outright mention that the image was shot with a OnePlus 5T, but his caption sort of makes it obvious. “What phone is he taking that photo with?”, that’s clearly teasing a new phone. ALSO READ: OnePlus 5T vs OnePlus 5 expected changes: Bezel-less display, improved camera and more

Last week as well, OnePlus co-founders Carl Pei and Pete Lau teased a bunch of camera samples on Twitter. One of Carl Pei’s tweet featured an image of a disco ball with the caption reading, “Cool photo, must have come from a great camera”. Pete Lau also joined in by tweeting a photo titled, “Impressive photo. Must be a great camera”. While there is not official word that these camera samples are from the OnePlus 5T, we are willing to bet money on it. ALSO READ: Apple iPhone 8 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs OnePlus 5: Dual cameras compared

While that comes from the bosses, from what we know from the speculations, the OnePlus 5T is expected to feature a 6-inch AMOLED full HD+ (1080×2160 pixels) display. It will possibly be powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC as seen in the OnePlus 5. In terms of storage and RAM, it will also continue with the same 6GB/8GB of RAM, and 64GB/128GB internal storage options. ALSO READ: OnePlus 5T goes up for pre-order on Oppo Mart ahead of official launch: Price, specification, features leaked

In terms of photography, however, there are expected to be some upgrades. A benchmark listing pointed at a single 20-megapixel rear camera for the OnePlus 5T as opposed to leaked renders. However, a dual-camera module is also highly expected with possibly the same configurations, but upgraded features. Further, the OnePlus 5T is believed to be fueled by a 3,450mAh battery with support for Dash Charging, and will run Android Oreo 8.0 out-of-the-box with the latest OxygenOS version layered above. DON’T MISS: OnePlus 5 Long Term Review: Still feeling the power
