With this guide, you can enable stereo speakers on OnePlus 5T. The era we live in is filled with vast variety of technologies on smartphones. One of the most underrated of these technologies is external stereos speakers. Unfortunately not all smartphones are integrated with dual stereo speakers — we see them just starting to pop up in high end Android flagships such as the Galaxy S9. Hopefully, this trend will catch on and more manufacturers would start providing this basic yet exceptional functionality. In this guide, we will take you through the procedure of how you can enable stereo speakers on OnePlus 5T smartphone.
Looking at the specifications of OnePlus 5T, there should have been stereo speakers implemented in the device. OnePlus 5T is powered by Snapdragon 835 with 8 or 6GB RAM along side Octa-core processor. However, there are no stereo speakers. But there is a way of enabling them on OnePlus 5T thanks to the a Magisk mod for Android. There was a stereo mode developed for OnePlus 3T which was ported for OnePlus 5 to enable stereo speakers. Now it is ported again from andrizmitnick for OnePlus 5T.
This mode can only be used for OnePlus 5T so don’t try on any other device. This mod is ported from the OnePlus 3T that does not mean you can use it on OnePlus 3T so you have to be very careful. To enable this mod, your OnePlus 5T should be rooted. Remember that this mode will only work on OxygenOS or custom ROM based on Oxygen OS. Before you start modding your OnePlus 5T, check if it has OxygenOS installed in it. This mode works on both Nougat and Oreo.
