If you were cross with Samsung for ditching removable batteries with the Galaxy S6 then you might not like what it’s going to do with the 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 also means that you won’t be able to plug in the Galaxy S8 and use wired headphones at the same time.
It's unclear how Samsung would market this decision as it mocked Apple for dropping the headphone jack after it announced the iPhone 7.
Samsung is also rumored to be integrating stereo speakers, perhaps in collaboration with Harman, a company it recently acquired. Samsung will likely unveil the Galaxy S8 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.
