After several years of criticism of Apple, Samsung has removed the headphone Jack in its latest smartphone
Recently, Samsung introduced a smartphone Galaxy A8s, which in many ways is a landmark for the company. This is the first phone with a cut in the screen, a new form of camera, and it has no headphone Jack.
When Apple introduced the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in 2016, Samsung criticized the company for lack of the 3.5 mm connector. Samsung has released many promotional videos, which pokes fun at Apple over missing the audio connector, and stresses the superiority of their smartphones.
During the presentation of Galaxy Note 7, the Executive Director of Samsung’s Justin Denison noted that the device has a headphone Jack. “Want to know what else he has? Audio Jack”, — he said grinning, while the audience laughed.
In the beginning of 2018 Samsung released a video in which it was noted that no X iPhone 3.5 mm connector, and Samsung Galaxy S9 is.
Now Samsung will no longer be able to make fun of Apple about it, because she removed the headphone Jack in the Galaxy A8s. To connect wired headphones, have to use USB-C by 3.5 mm.
According to rumors, the Galaxy S10 will be the last Samsung smartphone with a headphone Jack. To Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S11 it will be gone.
