Samsung quietly killed the headphone jack and nobody noticed
During the Unpacked event, Samsung didn’t make any mention of this. Nevertheless, the fact that it has been removed from such an important device suggests that Samsung could soon stop including it in future flagships.
As things stand, Samsung’s isn’t due to announce another premium model for at least another six months. Nevertheless, a rumor dating back to October suggested that there had been internal discussions about axing the headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 10. If Samsung ultimately chooses to delay its removal, the expectation is that the feature will disappear next year with the Galaxy S11.
Samsung hasn’t publicly spoken about its future plans for the headphone jack but sooner or later its removal is inevitable. Especially now that the brand is focusing heavily on wireless charging and the new Galaxy Buds.
