Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will not have 3.5mm jack for headphones

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is the next top-of-the-line smartphone to be launched, due to take place in late August or early September, and the last few years the South Korean manufacturer has taken advantage of IFA, a technology event that takes place in Berlin, to present their new phablet.

The next IFA will occur between September 6 and 11, and if Samsung maintains its strategy, it should be a few days before the South Korean manufacturer will introduce the new Galaxy Note 10. There have already been several rumors and even concept of the design of the equipment, but now has come an information that will not please the fans of Samsung: the next top of the range will not have a 3.5mm jack for headphones.

In recent times, concept-designs have been launched Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Pro based on supposedly true CAD designs. The latest designs confirm some rumors about the Galaxy Note 10, but they also revealed some extra information extras. But not all good, for most of the fans, since some features of the predecessor disappeared.

According to these new images, the rear chambers have changed their location, and now they are located on the upper left side of the rear, in a vertical format, instead of the horizontal of the Galaxy S10. We can also check the lack of two things: the Bixby button as well as the output of the 3.5mm headset.


It is true that this information lacks confirmation and may not be true, but the publisher is the Twitter @IceUniverse account, which has an excellent history of success, which offers some confidence in this information.

Also we can check some openings for the USB-c Port, Stylus S Pen, speakers and microphones. The fingerprint sensor should be placed under the screen just like the Galaxy S10.

Although not good news, many brands have stopped putting the 3.5mm jack for headphones. Incidentally, Samsung is one of the few manufacturers that has still put the jack available to its users, so it is not surprising if you decide to withdraw in the new Galaxy Note 10.

What do we know so far about the Samsung Galaxy Note 10?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 should have a larger screen than its predecessor, with the presence of the front cameras on the screen, not integrated by low ones as it has demonstrated by Oppo and Xiaomi, but in a hole in the screen, just like in Samsung Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10 Plus.

The Galaxy S10 series features an impressively versatile camera configuration from the Korean company; consisting of a 12 megapixel optically stabilized (OIS) main sensor with a variable f / 1.5 to f / 2.4 aperture, an ultra wide 16 megapixel sensor and a third OIS sensor with a 12 megapixel telephoto lens. Expectations point to a similar setup for Note 10, albeit with a fundamental difference.

In place of the standard 12 megapixel telephoto sensor, which currently grants the S10, S10 Plus and S10 5G zoom up to 2x, Samsung has created its own periscopic camera module to ensure that any phone that implements it has significantly higher optical zoom.

This will give Note 10 far more competitive zoom capabilities compared to the current leaders in this area: Huawei P30 Pro it’s the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom, both also using a transverse periscope lens design itself.

Samsung has not done much to improve its 15W Adaptive Fast Charge technology since its introduction, however the Galaxy S10 5G boasts a fast 25W charge, adhering to the USB Power Delivery 3.0 standard.

Note 10 (or at least one of the variants) will potentially offer a 50W fast charging, combining Oppo’s SuperVOOC technology and outperforming OnePlus’s 30W charging, as well as Huawei 40W SuperCharge technologies.
