Samsung Note 8, Apple iPhone 8 Are Set To Collide, Launching Soon
If recent reports are to be believed then it appears like Samsung is planning on taking the wraps off its much-talked-about Galaxy Note 8 smartphone in August this year. The South-Korean tech giant with the launch of this device hopes to revive its glory that the firm lost with its Galaxy Note 7 fiasco sometime last year.
According to a report published by Express, it initially being assumed that the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone will be brought to the market in the month of August because of the firm last year, revealed the device just about at the same time. However, Reuters basing their information on a source close to the matter, confirmed the news by suggesting that Samsung will certainly be bringing the Galaxy Note 8 smartphone sometime during the month of August. It is also be noted that this is a strategic move made from the side of Samsung as it wishes to reveal its flagship smartphone before Apple gets the chance to launch its highly-anticipated iPhone 8, which it probably will in September.
As far as Apple is concerned, it doesn't appear like the Cupertino tech-giant is any hurry to bring it's iPhone 8 flagship smartphone to the table. The company is taking its own sweet time to integrate the best features into the device, as it also marks 10th-year-anniversary since the first iPhone was launched. On the specifications front, the iPhone 8 device is believed to come with a completely revamped design accompanied by an edge-to-edge OLED display and the ability to support wireless charging along with what is described to a water-proof, all-glass design among other splendid-sounding features.
According to a report published by The Inquirer, the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 smartphone may be getting shipped with a dual rear camera setup. It was believed that the South-Korean tech giant will be debuting a dual-rear camera feature with its Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones - however, it appears like they weren't equipped enough to do so. Therefore, they decided to push the feature onto another one of the flagship smartphones, i.e. Galaxy Note 8 smartphone. What remains unclear is that how exactly Samsung plans on using the dual rear camera setup. There are chances that the company might favor a wide-angle approach in the sensors, similar to how LG did or a depth-perception approach with how Apple did with its iPhone 7 Plus device. The Note 8 smartphone is also going to come equipped with Infinity Display design, similar to that of Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus smartphones.
