One of the most controversial moments in technology this year was the elimination of the Apple iPhone 7 headset jack, something that made almost everyone laugh at the company, especially after Cupertino executives described the act as one Of courage. As one of its key competitors, Samsung was the first to mock Apple for making it impossible to listen to music with cable headphones and charge the iPhone at a time after the 3.5mm audio port was removed, promising to keep its choice Super popular live on their next models. Guess what Samsung is planning to do. According to a report from SamMobile, the next Samsung Galaxy S8 will come without a headphone jack, not because Apple did, but because the South Korean company thinks it is the right way to do it.
Why exactly do you think it has not been mentioned yet, but one thing is for sure: the S8 will not allow its owners to use 3.5mm headphones and adapters will be needed. It turns out that Samsung is going to bet hard on the Type-C USB port, so the following company models will use this connector not only for loading and transferring data but also for audio. Most likely an adapter will let you use traditional headphones with the S8, just like Apple does with the iPhone 7.
And no, that’s not all. There is another rumor circulating on the network that Samsung is working on a super revolutionary option that no one has planned to carry a phone: a fingerprint sensor integrated into the screen.
To begin with, Apple is already working on a similar technology for the next iPhone, so it is likely that Samsung is in a hurry to do so ahead of its rival. Hopefully, they will not be as interested in overtaking Apple as in Note 7, because we already know how that ended for the South Korean company.
The Samsung Galaxy S8 will come to light in February at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, so we should have an idea of Apple’s vision for its next mobile in two months.
