Galaxy S8 To ‘Kill’ 3.5mm Headphone Jack Just Like iPhone 7

This year some manufacturers made the decision to remove certain “traditional” features in smartphones. The most famous case that generated an intense discussion in social networks, it was the tech giant Apple who decided to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from its latest smartphone segment iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

At the end of last year, the rumors arose that the Cupertino company would move forward with this controversial decision, other manufacturers, such as LeEco, also decided to remove the earpiece door and serve the sound by the USB-port type C. Then others followed such as Motorola with Moto Z.

Now, according to the information from SamMobile, a channel which closely connected to Samsung, the Galaxy S8 will also arrive without the 3.5mm headphone jack.

As we already had spoken this rumor and also addressed this trend set by the tech giant Apple would be followed by the almost all manufacturers of smartphones. In fact, a rumor was enough for other brands to adopt immediately, even if that had generated a bad feeling among customers. Now, following the trend of Apple and other players, Samsung, in the next top-tier Galaxy S8, will remove the 3.5mm jack.

Does Apple’s decision have created the trend in the segment?

This rumor is not new, actually, just now it is confirmed by SamMobile. A channel which is closely connected to Samsung ensures that this input will be excluded for the reasons of space, as is is clear that Samsung intended to free up space simply for a larger battery or other hardware components.

However, the users of this device can easily use their traditional headphones using the 3.5mm jack with the USB Type-C adapter. It should also be noted that the fact that why the company uses this port, USB-Type C, will allow better audio quality and fast charging.

Because the South Korean company does not facilitate audio quality, clearly supplanting the competition, it is being broadcast that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will have sound speakers signed by Harman Kardon, the well-known company that was recently acquired by Samsung for value Of $8 billion.

Moreover, the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S8 will take place at the Mobile World Congress 2017, where we will see all this data confirmed (or not). Despite the fact that it is a detail, this change in the structure of smartphones, confirms that Apple can still create trends in the market.
