There's no standard 3.5-mm headphone jack this time but that isn't much of a deal-breaker.

Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus on Monday announced that it will refresh its line-up with OnePlus 6T in India on October 30.

The upcoming flagship from OnePlus which has been promoted through teaser videos on social media is expected to be unveiled globally on October 17.

The upcoming device will house in-screen fingerprint scanner.

The company’s CEO Pete Lau recently said that the 3.5-mm headphone jack has been done away with to make room for the new “Screen Unlock” feature — OnePlus’ name for the in-display fingerprint sensor.
