The hype is everywhere… we are all looking forward to the launch of the Galaxy S10 and so we try get as many Galaxy S10 Leaks as possible. If you are wondering what will be included in this device, then you may be excited by what just came out.
When Apple first got rid of the headphone jack in its iPhones, there are some speculated that the move was a poor one and that the firm would revert back to the 3.5mm headphone jack. Months down the line, the company has gone to prove that the decision is sustainable.
As a result of this, there are speculations that Samsung would soon follow along this path. The latest Galaxy S10 leak suggests the South Korean firm has plans to get rid of the headphone jack.
According to Bloomberg, the jack-less Galaxy S10 is currently undergoing testing and this indicates the wider range of changes the firm has in store. Every action by the firm indicates that it has plans to develop completely wireless devices.
Samsung remains one of the top-rated tech names that has refused to remove the headphone jack and there are fans who loved this stubbornness. As such, you would expect significant outcry when the company removes it.
Even though such a move had already been predicted in the Galaxy Note 10, seeing it moved up to the Galaxy S10 would be quite controversial.
A No-compromise device
Ever since the first Galaxy S10 Leaks began hitting the market, we got to learn of this device as a no-compromise gadget worthy of Galaxy range’s 10th anniversary celebrations.
It has triple rear cameras, an ’ultrasonic’ in-display reader, new gradient color schemes, a 5G option and Samsung has not only teased its borderless, notch-less design prowess, the company has bragged about the Galaxy S10 twice (1,2)
As such, many experts started asking how Samsung would be able to squeeze so much innovation into it. Probably this leak presents us with the answer to that question.
If Samsung goes ahead with what we have speculated, then that will mark the beginning of new technologies which require customers to sacrifice something.
Change in Strategy
Back in September, Samsung announced that it was changing its strategy with regards to smartphone innovation. The firms said that it would debut novel features on mid-range devices.
It went ahead to do exactly that. Within a couple of weeks, we saw the launch of the first smartphone that has four rear-facing cameras, and none of these devices were flagships. Having made such a major decision, it would not be surprising when the company decides to actually remove the headphone jack.
The only danger in doing so is that the company risks being labelled as a copycat. Apple and Samsung have over the years rivalled each other for the throne of the most innovative company. Apple beat Samsung to removing the headphone jack. If Samsung follows along, then it goes without say that it will strike many as walking in Apple’s shoes, which isn’t much of a good brand image. But what’s wrong with copying a technology you feel is impressive?
