Samsung explained why stripped Galaxy Note 10 3.5 mm headphone jack

Yesterday Samsung introduced its new phablets of the Galaxy Note 10 family, and these are the first representatives of the line

without 3.5mm headphone jack.


A Samsung representative explained to reporters thatwhich is why the company got rid of the connector. The answer is predictable: all for the sake of increasing the autonomy of the smartphone. The larger the battery capacity, the larger the battery itself, but the gadget itself is not rubber. Therefore, recently, many manufacturers are abandoning “extra” holes for the sake of a capacious battery and the same dimensions.

True, the autonomy of the Galaxy Note 10 is not impressive: 3500 mAh for the younger version and 4300 mAh. And the 3.5 mm jack made it possible to increase the capacity by 100 mAh - that is, only by 2-3%.

In addition, according to a Samsung representative, the absence of a connector allowed for improved haptic feedback. Everyone seems to have “forgotten” about the huge stylus slot.

And not a word about the Galaxy Buds wireless headphones and the benefits for their sales from the lack of a connector...

By the way, Galaxy Note 10 is not the manufacturer’s first smartphone to lose its connector. Before it were the non-flagship Samsung W2018 and Galaxy A80.

Let us remind you that Apple abandoned the 3.5 mm jackin 2016, and since then Samsung has repeatedly trolled its competitor about this issue. But after the release of the Galaxy Note 10, the company removed a 2017 commercial that made fun of this “flaw.”
