Samsung Mimicking Apple Again? Wireless in-ear Headphones for S8 rumoured | Mobile phone latest news Google+ Follow Smartfonefreaks on Twitter




Samsung and Apple are probably going to go down as one of the greatest rivalries ever with both companies habitually improving or mimicking each other in terms of innovations.

It seems that we have another one with the Airpods. Apple released the AirPods, complete with a proprietary W1 chip that lets them instantly connect to an iPhone or iPad and now fresh rumours are suggesting Samsung will produce its own pair of wireless in-ear headphones. It's not clear if they will be bundled with the phone, or sold separately.

The S8 (one of the most anticipated things of 2017) will like the iPhone 7 reportedly get rid of the 3.5mm headphone jack, and use instead a USB Type-C for audio. 

It is believed that the USB Type-C audio allows for higher quality audio to be passed through a wired connection. But because it will use USB C, you won't be able to connect your current headphones, so you'll either have to get a pair that will use the bespoke connection, or get a wireless Bluetooth pair.


It is also rumoured that the new earphones will use Harman audio technology following Samsung's acquisition earlier this year for $8 billion, but we don't know this for sure.


Other features, such as one to rival Apple's W1 chip, haven't been confirmed either, so we'll just have to wait and see.
