The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 may not have a headphone jack
As Samsung's first flagship launch of the year draws closer, it is looking more and more likely that its second will feature a Galaxy Note 20 rather than a Note 11. Now, this upcoming phablet may have acquired its first credible leak, which may pertain to its looks and at least 1 hardware feature.
It comes in the form of a patent allegedly submitted to Intellectual Property India (IPI), and specifies a case that may have been made for the next-generation Galaxy Note. Admittedly, with its rectangular rear-camera window, this accessory also looks like it could fit the pre-existing Note 10 Lite. However, the patent was filed in November 2019, and was only published in January 2020. Therefore, its IPI approval may have come too late for the recently-launched non-flagship phablet.
In any case, this design does not show a cut-out for a headphone jack, which the Note 10 Lite does in fact have. Therefore, this may indicate that, not only will the next Galaxy Note adopt Samsung's new L-shaped camera conformation, it will yet again drop the 3.5mm port.
