Amazon India to give away Bullets Type-C earphones with OnePlus 6T pre-orders?
- Amazon India users will reportedly receive USB Type-C Bullets earphones when they pre-order the OnePlus 6T.
- The deal seems to end on October 30, which suggests the phone will be available in India shortly thereafter.
- The OnePlus 6T lacks a 3.5mm jack, forcing people to use Bluetooth, a dongle or USB Type-C earphones instead.
The OnePlus 6T is a few weeks away from its unveiling and release, but it seems like Amazon India is already getting in on the pre-order action.
The online retailer is promising a free pair of USB Type-C Bullets earphones if you pre-order the device, according to MySmartPrice and Gizmochina. In addition to the earphones, you’re also getting a 500 rupee (~$7) Amazon Pay balance.

You’ll need these new earphones if you don’t want to deal with dongles or Bluetooth, as OnePlus has confirmed that the OnePlus 6T won’t have a headphone jack.
It seems like the pre-order date ends on October 30, which suggests the phone will launch shortly thereafter (in India, at least).
What to expect from new phone?
As for the core specs, the OnePlus 6T is expected to offer a Snapdragon 845 chipset, 6GB to 8GB of RAM, and a waterdrop notch. Other rumored specs include a 3,700mAh battery, and an unspecified dual-camera setup.
OnePlus has also revealed that the new phone will have an in-display fingerprint sensor, joining the likes of Vivo, Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi in offering the technology.
T-Mobile is expected to stock the phone in the U.S., marking OnePlus’s first carrier partnership in the country. So if the expected $500-$600 prepaid price is a little too steep for your liking, then a contract is finally looking like an option too.
Would you buy the OnePlus 6T, even though it doesn’t have a headphone jack? Sound off (heh) in the comments below!
