In short: The OnePlus 6T Android flagship will be launching alongside seven accessories, according to a new report that also reveals their prices. The gadgets in question consist of five cases, the new USB-C Bullets Earphones (€19.95) that the Chinese manufacturer already announced earlier this month, and a USB-C to 3.5mm headphone jack adapter that will be sold at €8.95, though one such cable will also be bundled with every unit of the upcoming handset. The newly leaked protective cases are the Nylon Bumper Case Black (€26.95), Ebony Wood and Karbon variants of the Bumper Case (€31.95), as well as Sandstone (€21.95) and Karbon (€26.95) versions of the classic Protective Case. While the leaked prices are all expressed in euros, i.e. planned for EU markets, OnePlus's established product practices suggest the company will be asking for the same figures in dollars in the United States.

Background: The OnePlus 6T already leaked on numerous occasions over the last several weeks, with the company itself also revealing a number of details about the upcoming device, including the fact that it will sport an in-display fingerprint reader. Compared to the OnePlus 6, the new handset will feature a smaller display notch styled after a waterdrop and offer a higher-capacity battery, albeit at the expense of the headphone jack that won't be part of the package any longer. The firm rationalized the polarizing decision by claiming the majority of its customers already used wireless headphones, asserting now is the right time to follow suit with the majority of the mobile industry and remove the popular audio connector.

Impact: While the OnePlus 6T will introduce yet another price hike amounting to around $30, as per numerous reports on the matter, the accessories accompanying the Android phablet won't be priced much differently than those designed for its predecessor. The official pricing of the upcoming gadgets should be confirmed on October 17 when the OnePlus 6T is scheduled to be announced.
