Original Post (March 20th, 2017)

As the Galaxy S8 launch closes in, we have yet more leaks regarding the device and its accessories. Unlike Apple, the company has decided to retain the 3.5mm headphone jack and according to the previous announcement at MWC, will ship the flagship Galaxy S8 with AKG-powered headphones inside the box. The onboard speakers will also be powered by HARMAN, a company that was recently purchased by Samsung for $8 billion. Today, the first images of the AKG-powered headphones were leaked in real-life images.

As per the images above, we can see that the earphones have a bit stylish design with a braided cable instead of a regular plastic one, which will help them not stay tangled. The outer body seems a little larger than usual, which may or may not affect the quality of sound. The earphones also have the microphone and volume controls, just like the previous set of earphones provided by Samsung.

We first saw the AKG-branded earphones with the Galaxy Tab S3 that was unveiled at the MWC 2017 in February. The flagship Samsung Galaxy S8 will also be launched in less than two weeks period now and we are quite excited for the device, are you?
