The Google Pixel and Pixel XL could be the next smartphones to arrive without an audio jack. Or that is what the leaked images suggest.
Maybe Apple and Google have a future tech to implement with this lack of audio jack...it's a bit fishy
Wireless headphones are more comfortable than the ones with a wire.
But comfort comes at a price. And as much as i want the Kanoa headphones i would be pissed if i lost 1. Then if you get the stupid cable to not lose them they are no longer wireless. There is no point in removing the headphone jack. Not as though it took up valuable space or bluetooth didn't work with the jack in place.
You wear the cables on the ears? Strange.
Another phone I'll never buy, then.
They're all getting rid of the jack eventually, possibly as soon as next year, but this article's information is wrong.
My Bluetooth lg headset has been working fine for a couple of years now. Headphone jack is only a place for water to try to get in while raining
It is a potential weak point.
yeah, sure. Xperia says hi!
never had a problem with my S5 when water gets on it, even in the headphone jack. It's actually sealed.
Just another excuse to raise the prices for audio.
Treu, but it's ironic because in a normal world when you use fewer components the price should go down.
"Google usually opted to place the audio jack on the bottom of the smartphone, because, they say, users generally introduce the smartphone in their pockets with the upper side down, and this way the audio jack would actually be in the upper part of the pocket."
I don't know what these guys are talking about, or where they get their information from, but Google sure as hell doesn't usually have the jack on the bottom. Even the current Nexus had it on the top. Sadly, Apple is one of few manufacturers that elects to put it in the "right" place. And the renders of the Pixel phone show the jack at the top. We won't know for sure until the 4th, or the 3rd if press shots leak, but this article is a little bit.. Peculiar.
Nexus 5x has the audio jack on the bottom, next to the usb port.
