According to the word report Android PoliceSamsung may remove the 3.5mm headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 10, even the physical buttons on the side. Bixby volume and power keys will be replaced with capacitive or touch-sensitive keys, slightly raised over the surface and located along the edge of the device.
Note series is always a fertile land of Samsung, where the company applies future-oriented changes with new designs. Removing headphone jacks will almost certainly make many fans disappointed, who have long argued that Samsung's insistence on keeping the 3.5mm jack is one of the big reasons for them to stick.
But now it's 2019, Samsung is almost alone when it comes to this issue for high-end smartphones. Google, OnePlus, Huawei and Apple have all removed the 3.5mm headphone jack on their flagship models. Even, many cheap flagships like Xiaomi's Mi 9, the Honor 20 of OPPO's Honor or Reno also lack the familiar headphone jack.
Samsung may argue that removing the 3.5mm headphone jack will give the company plenty of room to equip large batteries, although there are also benefits to reducing design complexity and increasing capabilities. Water resistance and dust resistance.
One of the little-known advantages of talking about removing physical keys is the holes cut on the device's frame. These are the weaknesses on the chassis that most smartphones have. This will allow Samsung to create a phone with a slimmer, lighter design without affecting the rigidity of the frame.
