When its the beginning of summer you know the rumors will begin to circulate for the expected release of the Samsung Galaxy Note device, which should be revealed in 2 months time.
But we must warn you, the news might not be too exciting because the celebration of the Galaxy Note’s ten years of existence might be when the phone company plans to totally get rid of the headphone jack.
As per a report from Android Police, Samsung might be ready to unveil 2 sizes for the Galaxy Note 10 – a typical and a smaller phone – that will not feature the 3.5 mm headphone jack or the one that will function with Bixby.
Reports have revealed that the devices will possess capacitive or touch-sensitive areas that are textured, identical to how the power button/fingerprint sensor is placed on the Samsung Galaxy 10E device.
Even if earlier reports have suggested that Samsung was trying to get rid of the button on the Note 10, a recent addition to AP’s initial report revealed that physical buttons might still be present on the Note 10 to help users adjust power and volume. New renders surfaced as well, flaunting a huge screen and a repositioned camera in the back.
Taking out buttons is understandable because Samsung has always fancied in-screen and unibody stuff, but getting rid of a headphone jack would be a shocking step from a phone manufacturing brand that always touted this feature against its rivals.
Plus if the Note keeps its stylus, a slot would still be needed for the storage of the S Pen, therefore throwing away the argument for improved volume in addition to bigger battery capacity.
It might still be too early to hold on to these rumors but we will surely have more information about the device as the summer progresses.
As of now, this month, an unpacked event will take place on the 7th of August 2019.
