If a new report is to be believed, Google might actually ditch headphone jack with the Pixel 2. This report is from 9to5Google citing an undisclosed internal document as the source. The details regarding the document have not be shared as it might put the person behind the leak at risk.
The report states that the “language used presents the removal of the jack as a matter of fact.” It seems like unless the document is quite old, Pixel 2 is almost set to get official with no headphone jack. But it should also be noted that the same leak has not been confirmed by any other source which still gives rise to the possibility that it might not be true or things might change as the time passes.
If Google indeed goes on to release the Pixel 2 without a standard headphone jack, it will be an interesting decision. You might remember last year’s Pixel launch event where Google took a jibe at Apple for removing headphone jack from the iPhone 7.
We have already rumors that the Pixel 2 will be focused on the camera and photography just like its predecessor. There might also be Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and waterproofing.
