In addition to our standalone articles covering the latest Apple news and rumors at MacRumors, this Quick Takes column provides a bite-sized recap of other headlines about Apple and its competitors on weekdays.

Wednesday, March 14

– Why hasn’t Samsung ditched the headphone jack yet? Daring Fireball’s John Gruber remains convinced that headphone jacks are going the way of the floppy drive, but he explains why Samsung might not be ready to ditch the 3.5mm port yet, as Apple did with the iPhone 7 a few years ago. Samsung is more of a „do what the customer is asking for“ company; Apple is a „figure out what they’re going to want“ [...]

Samsung Galaxy S9+ Teardown Reveals Components for Dual-Aperture Camera and ‚Lower-Tech‘ AR Emoji

Over the weekend, iFixit shared its latest teardown, this one for Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S9+ smartphone. The Galaxy S9 and S9+ will both launch this Friday, March 16 for around for $720 and $840, respectively, and some initial reviews took to comparing the devices to Apple’s iPhone X.

iFixit did so as well in the new teardown, starting off by trying to get into the back of the S9+ to look at its rear-facing camera components.

Video Comparison: Samsung Galaxy S9 vs. iPhone X

Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S9 started last week, and the first S9 orders are set to arrive to customers on March 14. We managed to get our hands on a new Galaxy S9 ahead of the device’s launch date, so we thought we’d compare Samsung’s new flagship device to Apple’s latest flagship device, the iPhone X.

Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos. Design wise, the Galaxy S9 looks a lot like the Galaxy S8, with slim bezels at the top, sides, and bottom and a display that curves downward at the sides.
