Just look at the Pixel 3 XL, OnePlus 6 (T) and LGV40, all launched this year. And even Apple has developed a more affordable all-screen phone with the iPhone XR, having helped launch the trend in 2017 with the iPhone X. With no headphone jack, there is more room for other hardware, and it also helps bring screens to the edges of the phones.
Samsung, the largest holdout for headphone outlets, excluded a 3.5mm port of the China-bound Galaxy A8. Recent cases indicate that the upcoming Galaxy S10 will retain the jack. However, it is unclear how long Samsung can put it in their flagships. Few other companies have sufficient engineering resources to make room for a 3.5mm port while removing camera nicks and screens. I'm sorry, headphone fans, now there's no turning back.
And to put it bluntly: I say this with great resignation. Although I mostly use wireless headphones with my iPhone X (the Libratone Track + and a variety of noise canceling doses), not a day goes by without me missing that little port. I feel every time I am with friends and can not easily connect my phone to older speakers or the sound system of an aging car. I have several 3.5mm Lightning dongles, but they are inevitably always close by when I need them. (It's really annoying that Apple does not even bring it with new iPhones.)
At least the rise of smartphones with just one screen is something ; At first we did not gain anything from the loss of headphone connections. Phil Schiller's notorious "guts" comment seemed to be a straightforward answer to dropping the port, but Apple finally said he needed more space inside the iPhone 7. Even so, the phone kept the iPhone 6S 'fat screen bezels and did not add any important new features to justify the loss of the jack. Motorola said it had to empty the jack to make the Moto Z so thin. It was an attractive phone, but the compromise was not worth it.
When Google Pixel 2 arrived, a more useful reason for removing the jack came up. Google product chief Mario Queiroz told TechCrunch that it was about "creating a mechanical development path for the future." Apple probably synonymous with the iPhone 7 made. "We want the display to get closer and closer to the edge," said Queiroz. "Our team said," If we want to do the shift, we'll do it sooner rather than later. "Last year [201
