Sources from the supply chain of components for smartphones Samsung say that the Samsung Galaxy S8 will follow the example of the iPhone 7 and will refuse to 3.5 mm Jack. That’s only for sound output will not be used USB-C, as one would assume, and a completely new connector.
This can lead to a new format war in which the headphone user will directly connect to an iPhone or Samsung smartphones. If possible, will involve additional adapters.
