Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 Axes the Headphone Jack

The rumors are true. Samsung is, indeed, getting rid of the headphone jack with the next Galaxy Note device.

We got our first real look at Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 just earlier this week, and suffice to say it features a really beautiful design on the outside. The leaked renders of the device showed off the two different sizes of the device, as well as the vertical three-camera setup on the back. But what it didn’t confirm was whether the device will have a headphone jack or not.

And now, the FCC has mistakenly leaked pictures of the Note 10 that was supposed to be kept confidential. The images, now pulled, were spotted by XDA, and they give us a front and a rear view of both the device:

And if you look closely, you will see that there is no headphone jack on the device at all. Samsung has been one of the few companies to have stuck around with the headphone jack, but it seems like the company is getting ready to axe the headphone jack with the Note 10. Besides that, the device’s design does look incredibly sleek from the very low-quality pictures above.

Samsung will probably carry that change over to the Galaxy S11 too, but to be honest it was about time considering every other phone maker have already gotten rid of the headphone jack.
