Samsung to remove the headphone jack in upcoming Galaxy S8

We can exclusively confirm that Samsung is going to remove the standard 3.5mm headphone jack from the Galaxy S8. This means that all of your existing headphones will not be compatible with the upcoming flagship unless you use a USB Type-C adapter as the Galaxy S8 will feature a USB Type-C port.

This is as much about misdirection over the ungodly mess that is the S7 Note as it is an actual piece of news in my opinion. The sooner Samsung start leaking info about their upcoming model the sooner the storm blows over.

Yes I’m a cynical bastard.
