Samsung has also made a 5G version of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus that’s identical in every way, apart from the modem inside that gives it access to the fastest data speeds. Also as it was reported earlier, Samsung is saying goodbye to the headphone jack. It’s a big deal because the brand was the last major bastion of the 3.5mm port. Letting that go signals a probable shift for future Galaxy phones.
