Another device to lose 3.5mm port – Galaxy A8s
We now have reasons to believe that Samsung is going to embrace the trend of removing the 3.5mm port from their phones, and they may start with the practice with their Galaxy A8s. This is quite an ironic piece of news that comes from a Twitter user @MMDDJ_, and it's a huge disappointment that many fans of the company still can't believe. We still don't know for sure whether these claims are true, but even despite it's still not confirmed it seems that we'll soon see the first Samsung phone that doesn't have the legacy jack.
Galaxy A8s Maybe cancel the 3.5mm jack.

It was only a matter of time when Samsung would jump on the bandwagon and join the trend of removing the 3.5mm audio port, however, what's surprising is that it's a mid ranger that will be the first one to lose the jack.
It is expected that this phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage memory. Galaxy A8s will be the first Samsung device to come with the new Infinity O display, which is another first for this phone.Source
