Recent Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks reveals that the handset's bundled earphones look certainly better than the average phone freebie that comes with the package. Apple is already capturing the market of music lovers with their partnership with headphone company Beats by Dr. Dre.
Of course, Samsung is not willing to let Apple have their way in the industry that easily. Which is why the South Korean tech giant acquired Harman, the ones responsible for iconic brands such as JBL and AKG.
According to AndroidAuthority, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be one of their flagship handsets that will benefit from the recent acquisition. Leaks about the earphones that come with the S8 have already surfaced.
The source mentioned that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will include above-average AKG earphones. These in-ear wired earphones have the AKG branding behind each bud, while sporting the Samsung logo on the tip of the wired jack.
It's reported that these AKG earphones are fitted with background-noise filtering technology. The cord of these Samsung Galaxy S8 freebie looks durable enough to handle tangling without bending and breaking.
While not exactly a revolutionary piece of technology, the bundled earphones certainly look way better than the ones included in previous Samsung handsets. It is also a fitting earphone that comes with a flagship device such as the Samsung Galaxy S8.
After all, Samsung's S8 line-up isn't exactly considered as a budget smartphone device. According to TheVerge, the Samsung Galaxy S8 goes for about 799 Euros, which is approximately 862 USD, while the S8 Plus will cost buyers a hundred Euros more than the base S8 version.
With that said, it's only natural for Samsung to bundle a higher quality headset to their pricey flagship device. Other notable features of the Samsung Galaxy S8 is its ginormous screen and gorgeous bezel-less design.
It's also worth noting that the S8 won't be having any physical buttons on the front of the device. The Samsung Galaxy S8 also has major hardware improvements over its predecessor, making it the 2017 smartphone to look out for.
