After the disastrous Note 7 flop, Samsung is still in the news for all the wrong reasons depending on how you look at it. According to Sammobile Samsung is reportedly preparing to release its Galaxy S8 without a headphone jack just like the latest iPhone 7. The S8 is also expected to ship with a USB Type-C port for charging and listening to music. This wouldn’t be new for Samsang as the Note 7 also featured a USB-C port, too, but we all know where that phone ended up.
Sammobile notes a few other rumors, like that the phone might ship with stereo speakers as a result of no headphone jack, and that it won’t feature a home button. It might also have a fingerprint sensor embedded in its 2K Super AMOLED display. SamMobile says the new screen will have the same resolution, but will no longer have a PenTile layout, which should improve sharpness, especially in VR.
Samsung has a lot to prove with this device. We only hope this phone won’t up in “flames”
