Samsung has poked fun at Apple for ditching the headphone jack with the iPhone 7, but it seems that was purely a marketing move, as the company is now following suit. Sources have confirmed to SamMobile the Galaxy S8 will remove the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack; if you want to use existing headphones, you'll require a a USB Type-C adapter, and if you want to plug the phone in and use wired headphones, you can't.

The upside is the potential for a thinner device with a larger battery, as well as stereo speakers; Samsung's recent acquisition of Harman means a potential collaboration on said speakers.

The Galaxy S8 will be revealed in February.
