Samsung might launch new wireless earbuds with the Galaxy S8
Samsung and Apple are battling it out when it comes to truly wireless audio on the go, but both the Samsung Gear IconX and the Apple AirPods have had their fair share of trouble. The IconX received less than favorable reviews from users and critics alike, while the AirPods faced multiple delays before they made it to users.

According to information from SamMobile, Samsung might be looking for another shot at the truly wireless earbuds, though. The tip claims that the South Korean giant will be releasing new in-ear headphones, with no wires whatsoever, with the launch of its next top-of-the-line smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S8.

Some rumors suggest that Samsung might be ditching the 3.5 mm port on their next flagship, similar to what Apple has done with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, and if this proves to be true, offering better wireless earbuds might be the way to go. Considering the controversy this move created for Apple, though, we can't know for certain what impact it would have on the Galaxy S8 and the company's reputation.

It's important to note that Samsung is allegedly experimenting with different Galaxy S8 prototypes, so the lack of a 3.5 mm port, paired with truly wireless earbuds, could be just another concept the company is looking into. And until official confirmation arrives, we can only wait and see.
