It's been a thing for a while. Pixel2 didn't have it and OnePlus6T will not have it either.
Probably a push from bluetooth headphone manufacturers or something.
We can all probably thank Apple for that "innovation" along with the notch.

I was a pixel 1 and 2 user, this pricing is just nuts. Only 128gb offered, too. No expandable memory, it's basically going the moronic iphone route.
My last Google phone was a Nexus 5... past 300$ I gave up.

it is indeed annoying.

however, chances are, if you spend $1000 on a cellphone, you likely have bluetooth headphones and/or bluetooth car studio.

at some point, companies like google and apple realize that it is more beneficial to cut the headphone jack, i.e., the money they lose from lost sales due to the lack of a headphone jack is less than the money they save and the design freedom they gain from not having to install a headphone jack (and selling headphone jack converters).

just look at the laptop market, nowadays, many laptops and ultrabooks don't even have optical drives (DVD-R or DVD-RW) anymore.

regarding this pre-order "deal", don't buy it, it is not that good.
Bitcoin will crash hard.

Since when new product advertisement = hot deal? Isn't that what Cell Phone forum is for?
The deal is on the phone stand and the 6 months of youtube premium.

People should just stop crapping on every single cell phone thread that talks about flagship phones to say that there are "cheaper options". Just like you don't walk into BMW and tell them how you can buy a Toyota for 60% of the cost.

If you can't appreciate what's being offered, you aren't their targeted customer.

Sick and tired of seeing the same people over and over again, get over it.
