Galaxy S8 Might Follow the Same Route as an iPhone 7 – Here’s How


Galaxy S8 will be coming with a slew of new changes, but looking at the lack of a headphone jack on an iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, it appears that S8 could follow the same route in terms of one feature. Here it is.

Rumor Has It That the Galaxy S8 Could Remove the Headphone Jack But Which Port Will Replace It?

Not long ago, Steve Wozniak stated that Type-C USB is going to be future of audio, and while iPhone 7 an iPhone 7 Plus do not feature such a port, there are other devices, such as Galaxy S8 that could come with such a port. Normally, a huge change in phones provides a stepping stone for something greater, and we believe that instead of sporting a headphone jack, Galaxy S8 is going to be incorporated with a Type-C USB port that is going to perform the functions of charging the device and allowing users to listen to audio too.

One perk of owning the upcoming Galaxy S8 is that it will already provide extensive flexibility when listening to audio and charging the phone at the same time. That’s because flagship Samsung smartphones already come with a wireless charging circuit that provide juice to devices without any strings attached. However, you have to keep in mind to take all of this information with a grain of salt, and wait for more updates to come through before we can start providing you with concrete evidence.

From what we know so far, Galaxy S8 is also going to be the first smartphone from Samsung’s flagship family to sport a UHD display. Though the company uses AMOLED displays for its phones, the efficiency metric of these displays might not be able to handle the battery guzzling properties of UHD resolutions, despite the fact that Galaxy S8 might come with a larger battery. However, it is possible that the device uses the same approach as that of Sony’s Xperia Z5 Premium, where the resolution is reduced to 1080p in needed situations in order to conserve battery life.

It’s also been rumored that the upcoming device could come with a dual-camera setup to challenge the iPhone 7 Plus. Unfortunately, it is too early to confirm at this point, which is why we will have to wait for more information to arrive so that we can provide you with more insights on the matter.
