"...as the popularity of Bluetooth headphones rises."
That is THE problem, I have been a long-time Bluetooth headphone user with various brands such as Jabra and Sony to name just two, and I'm still not impressed with every single one to this day. Just give me a simple-yet-robust 3.5mm audio jack all day long.
Good thing that LG is still keeping the 3.5mm audio jack on their flagship device with proper Quad HiFi DAC support. Even Sony is putting the audio jack back on its flagship Xperia line.
The S-series might lose its brand reputation if Samsung will continue to do this madness. I mean just look at that design! It just simply looks like a cheap-ass chinese smartphone.
B0B, 15 Jan 2020they still don't understand that there are tiny adapters which they can simply keep on their w... moreYeah adapters. A nother thing that you need to buy, can malfunction, or simply get lost (ok that is user issue, but still issue) . Oh yes and about type-c wired headphones.. Can you listen to music and charge the phone at the same time? NO!
Is it better? Ehh nope thank you
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2020I wonder why people freak out about s20 (ultra). 12GB Ram was used pretty often by Xiaomi and ... more1.)12gb ram wasn't used as the standard
2.)the sensor in the xiaomi is miles inferior.
3.)those phones with 10000mah aren't flagships they are Chinese OEMS with mediatek helio p70.the only flagship with a great battery is the Asus zenfone 6 and rog phone 2.
Nokia N91 is the most anticipated phone which features the headphone jack. Yeah, that port which is godsend for audiophiles!
Now that Apple is the moving leader and tries to get rid of any ports possible, we will not sure how technologies moving on.

When the competition was between Samsung and iPhone, there was a time of technological stagnation. Years later, when Huawei came into the top 3 and destroyed iPhone, the competition became times more aggressive. Now Samsung gives their best, either way, their fate will be the same as iPhone was
I wonder why people freak out about s20 (ultra). 12GB Ram was used pretty often by Xiaomi and ZTE. The newest SOC, nothing new here. There is phone with 5000-10000mAh battery. 108MP is in the Xiaomi note 10 pro. Yes, the package is good, but will be way too expensive for what it offers.

Defending Samsung for removing headphone jack and other bad stuff what they did. Ok answer me this: How can you charge and listen to music at the same time? Do you have two USB C ports on your phone? Have a look at LG G9. They still keep headphone jack. Do you know why? Because bluetooth was never intended for Hi-Fi audio use. But for file sharing between near mobile devices. Do some research and Google before posting your stupid comments and spreading misinformations.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2020how sad no headphone jack.. no buy then i keep my s10+Why in the world are you replacing a still good phone after

Samsung has lost the ultimate ability to plug in both headphones and charger at the same time. I guess only Chad flagship phones can do that and Samsung is a Virgin.
TimApple, 15 Jan 2020I'm convinced the headphone jack mentioned in the title is only there for clicks. Sure it was ... moreOr, on the contrary, if what you said is true, it shows that people still expect headphone jack from some manufacturers.
No jack, no buy. It's official. The flagship smartphone, the smartest of them all has received lobotomy. It's not as smart as before.
The radiation coming from wireless headphones and wireless charging has fried the headphone port so much that it has to be removed.
So, this "leak thing" that goes on and on and on ad infinitum, es getting real boring. No real news. Just rumors, and rumors. Real information is being kept at its minimum because when the device is launched, we already know all the details, even those that were never real, and the device is no longer interesting.
Most articles found in this site should belong to the 'Rumor Mill' section.
At this point, I'm getting disappointed with this leaking game.
See you around, I'm taking a vacation from Gsmarena.
