Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Likely To Not Have A Headphone Jack

Leaks revealed that the plan to remove buttons have also been scrapped

With so many great things happening to Samsung's latest flagship smartphones, there's some pretty high expectations for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 10. Yet so far leaks have revealed that things are changing quite a bit for the upcoming Note series.

Initial rumours speculated that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will not carry any physical buttons, but according to serial leakster Ice Universe this button-less approach didn’t pass Samsung’s rigorous testing, so the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 will retain the physical buttons.

Instead, it looks like the 3.5mm headphone jack isn't looking too good and may actually be removed. With the MYR499 Galaxy Buds launched, Samsung might be pushing true wireless audio as a standard moving forward. The wireless Bluetooth 5.0 earbuds were offered as a pre-order gift for the Galaxy S10 series and it was also included as standard with the Galaxy Fold.

Samsung isn't the only one to do this; most flagships released today have already ditched the 3.5mm headphone jack including the Galaxy Fold. The only exception so far has been the Samsung Galaxy S10, LG G8 ThinQ and the K20 Pro. But it looks like the era of jackless smartphones is definitely making its way.
