HTC U11 to come with headphone adapter; ditches audio jack


Now, here is a new leak speaking about the adapter used in this handset. A popular leakster, LlabTooFeR tweeted saying that the HTC U11 will ditch 3.5mm headphone jack and comes with a separate headphone adaptor. Since the company did not comment anything on this, we can just consider it as a possibility. It looks like HTC is following the current trend of removing audio jack in their phones.

The upcoming device will have a USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter instead. So, the users can still listen to their favorite music using a pair of wired headphones. The details regarding its prototype are not yet known.

As it is mentioned earlier, almost entire specs of the phone are revealed by leaks and rumors. Recently, we have seen a leak pertaining to the retail box of the HTC U11. It gave away so many details about the phone.
