“Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will be the first in the Note series to ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack”
Samsung Galaxy Note 10 press renders and several other leaked images have already suggested that the next-gen flagship will be ditching the 3.5mm headphone socket. Now, a few press images of the Galaxy Note 10’s 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter have revealed that Samsung fans will need to use an accessory to use traditional wired headphones. This reiterates the upcoming Note series models will be the first in the series to ditch the 3.5mm headphone port. Additionally, a hands-on video of the Galaxy Note 10 and its Plus variant’s dummy units has also surfaced on the interwebs, which shows a design inline with the earlier leaks.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10’s alleged 3.5mm to USB Type-C adapter’s design is pretty straightforward. The company is expected to offer the accessory bundled with the flagship. Samsung is also expected to offer a free pair of Galaxy Buds wireless earphones with the new Galaxy Note models as it did with the Galaxy S10. The upcoming smartphones could also be bundled with USB Type-C earphones tuned by AKG.
As for the hands-on video of the Galaxy Note 10 series dummy units, they have confirmed their sizes. The Galaxy Note 10 is said to measure 6.3-inches, while the Galaxy Note 10+ will be 6.8-inches diagonally. As you can see, the selfie camera will be placed inside the punch hole in the middle of the top, while the rear cameras will be placed on the top-left. The dummy units also don’t have the 3.5mm headphone socket.
Samsung is all set to launch the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7th at an event in New York; the handsets are expected to go on sale in select markets starting August 23rd. The brand is said to release as many as four new models in the series – the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+ with 4G, along with their 5G variants. The brand was earlier expected to launch the Galaxy Tab S6 at the event, but the company gave it an early introduction just yesterday.
