OnePlus has been a popular choice for people seeking high-quality, affordable smartphones. With the launch of its latest offering, the OnePlus 12, it’s time for OnePlus fans to pay close attention. While the device has only been launched in China so far, fans across the globe are eagerly waiting for its release in their respective countries.

For those who rely on wired headphones or earbuds, the presence of a headphone jack is a crucial factor in their decision to purchase a new device. While some manufacturers have done away with the jack, others have opted for alternative solutions like USB-C or wireless options.

The OnePlus 12 has received glowing words so far and appears to be an excellent successor to the OnePlus 11. But does the OnePlus 12 have a headphone jack? That’s what we’re here to find out.

Unfortunately, the OnePlus 12 model does not have a headphone jack. In fact, OnePlus hasn’t included one in its flagship devices for quite some time. Although it may be disappointing for individuals who are looking to use a wired connection to listen to music on their new smartphone, it shouldn’t be a complete surprise. Most smartphones, including the best ones of the year, no longer have headphone jacks.

Similar to the OnePlus 11, the only port available on the OnePlus 12 is its USB-C port. You’re sure to find wired headphones that work with this port that are among the best on the market.

In addition to using USB-C headphones, the OnePlus 12 also has Bluetooth 5.4 for use with wireless earbuds/headphones. And if you don’t mind listening to your audio externally, you can always use the phone’s stereo speakers.

The OnePlus 12 is expected to be launched globally in “early 2024,” including in the U.S.. The prices for the new handset worldwide have not yet been announced, but they are expected to be higher than the prices for the OnePlus 11. In China, the starting price for the base 12GB/256GB model is 4,299 yuan ($607), while the top-end 24GB/1TB model costs 5,799 yuan ($818), which is a 300 yuan ($42) increase from the OnePlus 11.

OnePlus just made an awkward mistake with the OnePlus 12R

OnePlus has made a pretty major flub regarding the storage hardware of the OnePlus 12R. The 12R is already one of 2024's best smartphones, but it is now receiving quite some heated flak for something OnePlus got wrong. The company advertised that the OnePlus 12R came equipped with a UFS 4.0 storage module when, in reality, it relies on the older and slower UFS 3.1 standard.

“The OnePlus 12R also still features all the new Trinity Engine features we announced at launch, like launching apps faster than ever and keeping applications locked open for up to 72 hours, and was fully tested using UFS 3.1 storage,” OnePlus President and Chief Operating Officer Kinder Liu said in an official statement.

The OnePlus 12 is considered the "new Android device to beat" this year -- and with good reason. This impressive smartphone boasts a 6.8-inch LTPO AMOLED display with a resolution of 1440 x 3168 pixels at 510 psi and a refresh rate of 120Hz, and it supports both Dolby Vision and HDR10+. It also offers a battery life that lasts up to two days between charges, features a well-received Hasselblad camera system, and much more.

When buying a new smartphone, it's important to consider its durability against accidental drops and water resistance, as these factors affect its longevity. While smartphones are improving in these areas, some models are more robust than others. Thankfully, most smartphones now come with an Ingress Protection (IP) code that indicates their resistance to water and other particles, making it easier to compare different models. So, how does the OnePlus 12 fare in this regard?
