Just saw this. Of course these are still rumors but I think this could be true.

Samsung is planning to ditch the headphone jack AND volume buttons on the Note 10....I don't know how I feel about that.

If this is true, the Note9 will be my last Note.

That's a disaster. Wireless audio isn't remotely comparable to wired audio (both in latency and quality) and I don't want to juggle with dongles. The Note series was about the ultimate power user device + art. That's the complete opposite here.

I hate wireless earbuds for 3 reasons:
1- its bad enough I get whatever radiation or whatever from the phone now ⚑
2- they never in sync with charge of the phone, so I look at phone and think oh yeah %80 but then the earbuds die? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
3- they do not sound as good 😣

I don't want the Buds. If they "give" some in the box, I'll never use them.

I want reliable audio that sounds good and I don't want to worry about another battery.

Samsung ditching the headphone jack - Ditchling the Notification LED - But in the otherwise awesome display - Samsung put a hole in the screen - Samsung - Was it worth the 87.5% - Samsung seems to be trying to hide the holes.... Look at the Marketing images.
Give your head a shake..

@Yoshisaur9 - Selfie cameras belong UNDER the display.. I'd have preferred to keep the Finger Print scanner on the back & Samsung could have spent the time & money hiding the front facing camera underneath the screen... my 2 cents 🐧

EDIT: Make that 10Β’

The reason I don't mind headphones being ditched because u can use USB to listen and other times u can just go wireless. However this works best for iPhone, their earbuds are superior to most other manufacturers. Also makes it easy for sharing chargers etc since many have it. Hence Samsung should stick to 3.5mm and not copy apple
