Samsung U Flex wireless headset for the Galaxy S8 gets Bluetooth certification

We’ve been hearing for the past few months that Samsung is going to ship a pair of wireless earphones with the Galaxy S8. Last week we found that Samsung has filed for a trademark for the brand “U Flex” and the description revealed that this brand was meant to be used with Bluetooth earphones. The Galaxy S8 is already expected to be the first smartphone on the market with Bluetooth 5.0 support.

The U Flex has now received its certification from the Bluetooth SIG. The certificate reveals that this is going to be the set of wireless earphones that Samsung ships with the Galaxy S8. It has been assigned model number EO-BG950 which strongly suggests that it’s meant for the Galaxy S8 given that the upcoming flagship bears model number SM-G950.

While it was initially expected that the headset would be added to Samsung’s Level series of audio products as well, the certificate doesn’t feature that branding so it remains unclear right now if the U Flex will be offered as a standalone Level series product as well.

Really? Didn’t Samsung already say at MWC that they would be shopping with AKG buds.

Never in the article did they say it would ship with the S8. Simply that it was made for the device, probably the same as AirPods were made for the iPhone 7, I’m guessing the same kind of deal.

“The U Flex has now received its certification from the Bluetooth SIG. The certificate reveals that this is going to be the set of wireless earphones that Samsung ships with the Galaxy S8.”

It does in the 2nd paragraph.

It makes no sense that it would ship with the S8 if the S8 is expected to have an audio jack. I wouldn’t mind (in fact would prefer) having the wireless buds, but it just doesn’t make sense…

Having an audio jack is not about preventing users from using Bluetooth earphones. It’s about not taking the choice away from the user to use whatever headset they want with the phone they purchased. I see no contradiction in having the audio jack for those who need it while providing Bluetooth earbuds at the same time.
