Luo admitted that in the early stages of development they wanted to change the standard USB-C connector: this would help make the smartphone much thinner. However, the minijack remained due to the quality of audio and the “freedom of users”. According to the head of OnePlus, design solutions should not prevent the owners of phones using their favorite accessories.
