Samsung has always excited the smartphone lovers with their prestigious “S” line of smartphones. The Korean company is currently one of the two major smartphone making companies who are ruling the smartphone world, beside Apple. But the year 2016 has not been great for the tech conglomerate; while the Galaxy S7 has done wonders, the Galaxy Note 7 has faced a major setback due to its life-threatening design flaw. So to compensate the losses and to stay in the race with Apple, Samsung is thinking some innovative features to include in the Galaxy S8.
According to some latest news, Samsung is planning to replace the microUSB port to USB-C in the upcoming Galaxy S8. We all know that Apple has launched their flagship device iPhone 7 with the same features and it’s now time for Samsung to follow their biggest rival’s footsteps. With this move, the Korean tech giant will also be able to remove the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, and channelize all the wired audio through the new port. To implement this change successfully, Samsung also has to change the design of their flagship devices.
Many Android smartphone manufacturing company were thinking to omit the headphone jack for a long time, but iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus has accelerate the process. So Samsung is now itching to successfully incorporate this new technology in their high-end smartphones. USB-IF, the steering group of all the USB and its associate peripherals, has recently announced the USB Audio Device Class 3.0 (ADC 3.0) specifications and Samsung has to go by that guideline before they introduce the USB-C feature in their phones. So now, the Galaxy S8 may now come with a proprietary port to replace the audio jack, which will surely interest peripheral manufacturers as they will get the chance to design devices with a new connector.
