Does Galaxy Fold (Hong-Kong version) Support 3.5pi Earphone/Headphone Jack?

Last Update date : Nov 23. 2020

Galaxy Fold is the first in-foldable display device that Samsung is launching and it had been designed by dual battery and internal slim, hidden hinge that never find out in previous Samsung devices. With the addition of new module parts, the 3.5pi earphone/headphone jack is not supported due to Galaxy Fold’s foldable designed concept.

However, as wireless Galaxy Buds are pre-included on your packaging box, you can use instead of wired earphones. It sounds by AKG and it provides you a reliable performance with very nice Bluetooth capability.

You can listen to music or answer incoming calls conveniently after connecting the earbuds to your device even while doing other activities, such as working out.

Connecting the Galaxy Buds
1 Check the direction of each earbud, correctly insert them into their corresponding slots in the charging case, and then close it.

The earbuds will start charging. If the earbud battery indicator light does not flash, connect the charging case to the charger and charge them for more than 10 minutes.

2 Open the charging case. The earbuds will enter Bluetooth pairing mode automatically and a pop-up window will appear on your device.

• If the pop-up window does not appear or if your device cannot find the earbuds, tap and hold both earbuds’ touchpads while wearing them to enter Bluetooth pairing mode manually.
When Bluetooth pairing mode is entered, you will hear a sound. However, you cannot use this method when you are playing music after setting the volume adjustment as a preset tap-and-hold feature.
• When the charging case battery indicator light flashes in red, take out the earbuds from the charging case and insert them into the case again.

3 On your device, tap Connect on the pop-up window and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the connection.

Once the earbuds are connected to your device, they will automatically attempt to connect to it whenever you open the charging case while the earbuds are inside it.
