Samsung has removed the headphone port from its new flagship phones after the South Korean giant used to use the headphone port on its mobile phones as marketing against Apple.
Samsung reversed what was previously announced in the Galaxy Note 10, as the phones do not have a standard 3.5mm headphone port.
The Galaxy Note series has historically tried to distinguish itself from Apple iPhones by features it does not possess, such as the styling, spacious storage, and headphone port.
Samsung also mocked in 2016 the lack of a headphone port inside the iPhone 7 showing someone using the iPhone with a set of adapters attached, allowing him to listen to music and charge the device at the same time.
Samsung's decision was not about encouraging people to use wireless headphones, though it sells Galaxy Buds similar to AirPods, saying it removed the headphone port to provide additional battery capacity, and thus, a longer battery life for Galaxy Note users. .
Although Samsung has ridiculed Apple for removing the headphone port, it is clear that it can still sell millions of phones without the headphone port and can make billions of new companies, as Apple did.
Apple's wireless headphones, AirPods, have quickly become the most popular Bluetooth headset and made it easy to switch to wireless headphones.
The headset is easy to customize compared to traditional headphones, thanks to the W1 chip and W2 chip inside AirPods and Beats products. You can easily change listening to audio on other Apple devices, such as iPads and Macs, without re-matching AirPods .
According to iFixit, it has found that "Apple" has removed the headphone port to include a new Taptic engine in the iPhone 7, which gives vibrating feedback on iPhone devices when interacting with the screen or receiving warnings.
