Following the Note10’s lead, Samsung’s latest Galaxy flagship kills the past.
Samsung is set to say goodbye to the headphone jack (for real this time) with the new Galaxy S20, S20+ and S20 Ultra.
While many Android vendors have followed in Apple’s footsteps and have opted to cease offering flagship devices with a traditional 3.5mm port in recent years, Samsung remained one of the few holdouts until relatively recently.
Last year’s Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+ held on to the headphone jack. However, the Note10 and Note10+ broke from this precedent to become the first major Samsung devices without the legacy port.
Now, with the announcement of the new Samsung Galaxy S20, S20 Ultra and S20+, it looks like the company is ready to cut their ties to the headphone jack for real. Neither the S20, S20 Ultra and S20+ feature the traditional audio input.
You can of course, always invest in a set of wireless or true wireless headphones to make up the difference. For a quick run-down on which true wireless earbuds are worth you money, click here.
