Rumor: Samsung will bundle wireless in-ear headphones with the Galaxy S8
With the AirPods selling like hotcakes, Samsung would want its upcoming Galaxy S8 smartphone to have a pair of its own as well.
According to SamMobile, the South Korean company will be launching a new wireless in-ear headphones alongside the Galaxy S8. It is not known whether the headphones will be included in the retail package or sold as an optional accessory like the AirPods. It could also possibly come with Harman audio technology.
Samsung already has a pair of completely wireless earphones, the Gear IconX which comes with splash resistance and a heart rate monitor. Since it is said to be removing the 3.5mm headphone jack on the Galaxy S8, it certainly wants to offer consumers a new pair of wireless earphones to take on the AirPods. The S Pen is another accessory which Samsung is rumored to be introducing alongside the Galaxy S8.
