Samsung dropping Headphone Jack in 2019 Galaxy Phones

While Samsung has previously poked*fun at Apple users*for not having a headphone jack, a*new report from ET News*claims that the Korean tech giant is going to follow the lead of Apple and Google and drop the headphone jack in 2019.

Citing supply chain sources, ET News says that Samsung is considering removing the mini jack from the Galaxy S11 and perhaps even the Note 10, replacing it with a single USB-C connector.

























You can blame*Apple, which made this possible. Almost every phone manufacturer — from Huawei to Google to the latest to drop the minijack shoe,*OnePlus*— seems to have followed the Cupertino company’s lead after it demonstrated that most people don’t give a damn about the lack of a minijack, preferring to rely on wireless or proprietary earbuds.


Indeed, the raging success of the jack-less iPhone and the AirPods have prompted a race in the industry, with*AirPod-like headphones*coming from all top audio manufacturers in the world.

According to ET News, the ever increasing popularity of wireless headphone solutions is precisely one of the main reasons why Samsung may be dropping the jack:


“According to market researcher Strategy Analytics (SA), the global wireless earphone market is expected to reach 73.9 million units in 2019 and 100 million units in 2022,” reads ET News’ report. “It is 42% growth from 51.9 million last year to two years.”


As the wireless headphone market explodes, Samsung is probably seeing an opportunity to promote its own earbuds.


The other reason cited by ET News is design: Samsung is on a race to offer a thinner and lighter phone, with*radical design changes on the pipeline. The elimination of an extra port will help them towards that goal.


And while there are many audiophiles who say they will never buy a phone without a headphone jack, the fact is that the industry is clearly going wireless in every respect. It’s not crazy to think that, in a matter of a few years, we will also see the USB-C port disappearing from every phone in existence. Better get used to it, because there’s nowhere to run from here, baby.

I think it's crazy as hell to poke fun at your biggest competitor about features they don't have, then follow suit of what you poked at.

Rumor. If they do it tho, the Note 10 will be my last Samsung phone. Wouldn't make sense to diss apple that hard on it, and then copy it.

Wait till late 2019 Galaxy rumors...... Samsung is adding the notch to 2020 Galaxy phones
Nah B

Apple is CURRENTLY using Samsung screens with notch

Sammy aint dumb. They handed them sh*ts off to apple. They not gonna use them in their own phones. Besides, would have already happened by now.

And if they did use it, it would be a more improved and useful version, for what it was intended for.

I mean I get the use and admiration for a wired connection but wired connections are so old and dated....... Everything is being moved to wireless as the back backbone for a myriad of technologies. I say get used to it.

But do you work in music? Like are you a producer?
I have been using wireless Bluetooth headphones for prob 4 or 5 years now and as my main headphones, I won't go back to the cord. I don't think it's right for companies to just take the option away for the cord and then turn around and make yo u buy an adapter just to have the option again. At work, i'm allowed to use earbuds and use corded ones, cause my Bluetooth earphones last 6 hours before I have to charge them and switch to the corded ones anyway, so I said fu*k it and just use the corded ones through the whole night.

Lol na man. I'm just a regular dude.

What are the health risks using Bluetooth headphones?

Did anyone do a study on the long term effects on radio waves going through your head?

It has to be some type of risks a.ssociated.

Everything isn't "copying" quite sure if the rumors turn out to be true the jack was removed probably because of the screen housing the fingerprint sensor. Apple removed it just because they felt like it
