Xiaomi Responded to Why It Removed the Headphone Jack From Mi6

The announcement of Xiaomi Mi6 comes with a huge list of improvements but it didn’t feature the near bezel-less display that you would see in Galaxy S8 and G6 it is extremely competitive pricing for Snapdragon 835 running flagship is pretty impressive.

It would have been more impressive if the company had retained few previous components that we’ve seen on many phones especially the headphone jack.

If you still have not noticed the company removed the 3.5mm headphone jack following the iPhone 7 Plus, HTC U Ultra and Moto Z. The manufacturer has provided the reason why it removes the headphone jack and replaced with Type-C USB interface.

Why It Removed Headphone Jack?

Xiaomi Claims that the smartphone is a complex device with many integrated components and removing headphone Jack made the Ample space for other useful additions. Not having a headphone jack might be a deal breaker for several peoples while it is also true that you can get USB Type-C to headphone jack converter in few hundred rupees.

The company has not removed the audio component but they just removed the port which previously allowed users to plug in their 3.5mm headphones.

This replacement provides three benefits to users, they can listen to music, transfer data and charge phone through a single interface. It would have been great if users were able to do the task at the same time but it is not going to happen.

The company also states that with the removal of the headphone jack, the Mi6 now had more space to accommodate other components.

When a teardown of the device is carried out, then only we’ll get know what other internals were replaced with that leftover space. Also keep in mind that by removing the headphone jack, Xiaomi would not have to spend extra money in sealing the 3.5mm headphone by making it water-resistant, but here is the problem.

Mi6 Protection

The Mi6 has not got any Ingress Protection rating, not even the IP67 and the details state that the phone features anti-spill protection which means if water droplets fall on the phone the internals are not going to be harmed. However, if you soak the phone in the water you will have to face the consequences.
