Samsung Galaxy S8 Drops the Jack

Samsung may be following Apple's trend of making devices less functional as they contemplate removing the headphone jack from their Galaxy S8. While streaming media from your device via Bluetooth or WiFi through Chromecast and other services in indeed popular, the simplicity of the headphone jack makes this an odd move. It's not working out all that well for Apple, so I'm not sure what they are thinking here. More details to come.

SamMobile notes a few other rumors, like that the phone might ship with stereo speakers as a result of no headphone jack, and that it won’t feature a home button. It might also have a fingerprint sensor embedded in its 2K Super AMOLED display. SamMobile says the new screen will have the same resolution, but will no longer have a PenTile layout, which should improve sharpness, especially in VR.
