NEW YORK (Reuters) – Samsung has eliminated the headphone jack, a marketing tool for the South Korean giant against the American Apple group, in the new Galaxy Note 10.
Since the introduction of smartphones, Samsung has tried to compete with features that Apple does not have, such as the stylus, mass storage and headphone port.
In 2016, Samsung ridiculed the lack of a headphone port on the iPhone 7, showing someone who uses the iPhone & # 39; a with a set of adapters attached, which allows him to listen to music and charge the device at the same time. As a result, she removed this tool from her new phones.
The company said it canceled the headphone port to provide additional battery capacity, and thus longer battery life for Galaxy Note phone users, according to a technical source.
Apple has long considered the lack of a headphone port on its phones as a clever step to abandon technology more than 100 years ago.
