Could this be the death knell for the headphone jack?

Android handset joins the dark side.

Could this be the death knell for the headphone jack?

Android users will soon have one less thing to brag about to their iPhone mates.

HTC's next flagship phone will be the latest from the Google camp to kill off the headphone jack.

And if the experts are on the money there'll be many more to come.

Code-named the "Ocean Note"... the HTC 10 will ditch aluminium in favour of an all-glass design which is tipped to be a trend (the next iPhone's rumoured to be glass too).

But if you use your phone to listen to Triple M you could be forced to upgrade your earbuds aswell with USB set to become the standard for headphone listening, at least on Android devices.

It follows its older brother... the HTC Bolt (pictured above) which said 'sayonara' to jack last year.
