Until now Samsung didn’t have the ‘courage’ to ditch 3.5mm headphone jack in favor of USB Type-C. This time around things seems to have changed with the upcoming Galaxy Note 10. According to leaks and renders, the Galaxy Note 10 will not come with a headphone jack.
Samsung is one of the very few smartphone manufacturers that still offers a 3.5mm audio jack for its flagship phones. If the rumors turn out to be true, then the Galaxy Note 10 will be the first Samsung flagship phone to ditch 3.5mm headphone jack. Backing the rumors is an image of a headphone dongle for Galaxy Note 10.

One of the most obvious reasons to remove headphone jack is the space it consumes. Samsung is expected to save a lot of space by using Type-C USB and this is helpful for incorporating slimmer bezels and the S-Pen. That being said we are not sure if you have to buy dongle as an accessory or whether it will be bundled along the Galaxy Note 10. It is also worth noting that Samsung has removed the headphone jack on the recently launched Galaxy Tab S6.
The company recently announced a special $600 trade-in scheme for pre-ordering Galaxy Note 10. According to Samsung, Galaxy Note 10 will be available on August 23. Going by the leaks and renders, the latest from the Note series is expected to arrive with improved S-Pen and more productivity features that take advantage of the S-Pen. The device is scheduled to be released on August 7 and is likely to be available in a new Pink Shade. Do you miss the 3.5mm audio jack on your iPhone? Let us know in the comments below.
