If recent rumors are to be trusted, the Google Pixel 2 won’t feature the common 3.5 mm headphone jack. It won’t be the first to rid of it – the iPhone 7, HTC U11 and the Moto Z were among the more popular models to lop it off in the last year. And it certainly won’t be the last. Unlike other smartphone manufacturers, the Google Pixel 2 might have the best reason for cutting the cord so far: Android O. Specifically, the new operating system’s support for a plethora of high-quality Bluetooth codecs. While one company cites “courage” as the inspiration behind leaving out the legacy port, and others offer up nary a reason for doing the same, the Pixel 2’s total shift to wireless might be the most encouraging nudge for those who are hesitant to make the switch to wireless headphones due to the warranted worry of reduced sound quality.
