HTC made the U12 Plus official final week, however buried within the particulars of HTC’s newest flagship was an unlucky catch: together with not having a headphone jack, the cellphone additionally gained’t embody a USB-C to three.5mm adapter for utilizing conventional wired headphones, as noticed by Android Police.
HTC isn’t leaving customers utterly stranded, nevertheless. The corporate will nonetheless embody a pair of USB-C headphones within the field, and it’ll nonetheless promote its $11.99 adapter individually (though it’s at the moment offered out on-line). Plus, as my colleague Vlad Savov has identified, HTC’s adapter that it shipped with the U11 and U11 Plus was horrible, and it solely labored with HTC telephones.
Wow! We might prefer to thanks and congratulate you prematurely in your upcoming HTC U12+, Aaroni. Nonetheless, it doesn’t include a headphone adapter. It consists of, HTC Fast Charger three.zero with USB Sort-C Cable, HTC Clear Case, & HTC USonic™ Adaptive Earphones. Thanks 🙂

If given the selection of utilizing your previous headphones out of the field or having to shell out an additional $12 for a hard-to-find adapter — as restricted as HTC’s is — it’s laborious to be happy with HTC’s choice right here both manner. That’s very true contemplating how risky and tough it’s to discover a respectable, useful USB-C to three.5mm headphone adapter.
It was HTC’s choice to go away off the headphone jack, and it was HTC that made the poorly acquired the adapter the primary time round. So it needs to be on HTC to guarantee that there’s a useful choice within the field for its customers, not hand over and go away customers trying to find a dongle on their very own.
