The Galaxy Note 10 doesn't have a headphone jack, here's why
by Joshua Swingle / Aug 07, 2019, 3:37 PM
The Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ are officially Samsung's first mainstream flagships to not include headphone jacks. The move is bound to cause a fair amount of controversy, especially considering Samsung's criticisms of Apple in the past for doing the same thing, but the company has at least tried to justify its decision.
The Verge, a Samsung representative said the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack has created extra room for a slightly larger battery. Specifically, the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ now include cells that are around 100mAh larger, which equates to an increase of between 2 to 3 percent. For reference, OnePlus managed to increase the capacity of its battery by 400mAh when it removed the headphone jack on last year's OnePlus 6T.Speaking to
Allegedly, the change has also helped improve the haptic feedback on both phones. Why? Because there's now one less hole in the phone, something that should help create a tighter internal structure.
Although your old headphones aren't compatible with the Galaxy Note 10 duo, the smartphones should ship with a new USB-C to 3.5mm headphone dongle inside the box. And if for whatever reason you lose the dongle, Samsung will likely be selling it separately via its website. If you're not too fussed about the quality of your headphones, the company's latest flagships also ship with a decent pair of USB-C ones inside the box, therefore removing the need for silly dongles.

"Hit the road Jack and don't come back no more no more..." so sorry to see it leave and I am not convince with the explanations but I must say that the Galaxy buds I purchased for my Note 8 are fantastic. So if Sammy gives out some Galaxy buds free as the did with the S10 they may makeup for Jack hitting the road.

Huawei P30 copy the shape of Note 8 and Note9. Remember the inventor of controversial curved display? Answer: Samsung. Maybe you think about the company who push the AMOLED display tech on phones that all actual flagships use it. Answer: Samsung.

Or Samsung could sell the stupid S Pen separately and use some of that space for even more battery and a headphone jack. But I guess more Note users would rather have a place to stuff their S Pen instead of listening via a 3.5 mm jack.

They should have put the headphone jack into the end of the S Pen. When you remove the S Pen with your headphones connected, it can wirelessly connect your headphones.

There is no meed to remove it. Phone cam be 1-2mm thicker which is positive compromise. Time and again OEM will find excuse to get rid of a jack so can sell you BT headset. Not a rocket science but obvious move. PA bring old good notification back which was stupid idea to do in the first place.
