Removing the headphone jack seems to be the upcoming trend for smartphones. Apple called themselves courageous for removing the headphone jack from the iPhone 7. Motoroloa did the same with the Moto Z series. I carried the Moto Z for a while and even though I use bluetooth much of the time I found it quite annoying to have to find an adaptor for those times I actually needed the headphone jack. Bluetooth headphones and accessories continue to get cheaper and more reliable, and wireless everything does seem to be the future.
According to new reports Google will be following this trend with the Pixel 2 and won't include a 3.5mm headphone jack. This is according to leaked internal documents regarding the device. 9to5Google says that the document presents the removal of the headphone jack as matter of fact, but they could not obtain a secondary source. They are giving this rumor a 6 out of 10 for confidence level so take it as you will.
