The Samsung Galaxy S8 came out about six months ago, and leaks about the upcoming Galaxy S9 have already emerged and are flooding the web. People are speculating about what features Samsung’s upcoming flagship smartphone will have. Among the suggestions are a dual-lens camera system, foldable screen, new recognition system for unlocking it, and much more.
Still, we can’t help but wonder what the fate of the 3.5mm stereo headphone jack on the Galaxy S9 will be. Will the company ditch the headphone jack like many of its competitors did, or is it going to keep it? A recent Samsung Galaxy S9 leak indicates that the company is struggling with whether or not to keep the 3.5mm headphone jack on its upcoming smartphone.
While some leaks suggest that the company will get rid of this bulky technology for its new flagship, other leaks suggest that the headphone jack is too loved by Samsung device users to be dumped. It wouldn’t be the first time that Samsung is experimenting with multiple designs for the same device. The company often experiments with different specifications until it hits the sweet spot, finalizing the design based on user feedback.
