AndroidAuthority reported today on two rumours from the same anonymous source.
One we have heard earlier – that the Note 10 will lack buttons, with those replaced with capacitive touch-sensitive areas.
The second is new and quite disturbing to me – that the Note 10 will lack a headphone jack.
This would make it the first flagship Samsung handset without a headphone jack, and with the device still needing a stylus would likely not bring any significant benefits in terms of thinness or other features.
It will also mean I will not bother upgrading my venerable Note 8, despite being an early adopter and regular user of Samsung’s IconX headphones. In my two odd-years of owning my Note 8 I have had to resort too many times to plugging in headphones – either for convenience or necessity.
I would like to put Samsung on notice – The reason I buy the Note range is because it has everything – I am not paying more to lose features.

Update: Reliable leaker Ice Universe has weighed in on the rumour, saying buttons are back, but that he is not optimistic about the headphone jack.
