The year 2016 saw mobile giants such as Apple and Motorola decide on doing away with the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack in their respective high profile smartphone releases. Is the world’s biggest seller of smartphones also doing the same in the near future?
Back in September earlier this year just days before Apple was about to officially launch its newest iPhone models (the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus), the tech giant revealed that the jet black colored editions of the iPhone 7 had sold out.
Its fiercest rival has already done it, so Samsung might as well give it a shot.
