Samsung Turkey Nougat Roadmap dated 08/09/2017

The device appears set to give Apple real tough competition in the premium segment.

Thanks to the steadily increasing average price of its iPhone line this year, the company's revenue from iPhone sales increased 3.6 per cent in the first nine months of its 2017 fiscal year, which ends this month, even though the company sold only 2.2 per cent more iPhones than it did in the year-earlier period.

The revelation comes just days before the Galaxy Note 8 arrives in the UK.

Samsung's Galaxy S8, on the other hand, is a gorgeous sandwich of glass and metal, curved edges and sumptuous design. The dual-camera setup includes a primary wide-angle lens (f1.7) and a secondary telephoto lens (f2.5).

On the back of the Samsung Galaxy S8 there's a single 12-megapixel camera with an f/1.7 aperture.

Indeed, for many potential smartphone owners, the differences in processor, battery size, screen size, SD card slot, RAM, and total on-board storage are secondary factors. The connectivity options - 4G LTE, VoLTE, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi and Global Positioning System with GLONASS - are standard for a flagship smartphone. Not to mention all four devices also support wireless charging. It'd actually be rather close to an actual note pad if you could fold it. Out of the box, the device runs on Android 7.1.1 Nougat. This also means that the smartphone may not be called the Samsung Galaxy X at all.

The tech giant confirmed pre-orders for the two new phones will begin on September 15 and they will go on sale in the United Kingdom on September 22. This is a big advantage that Samsung holds over its competitors. Both the iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 can be bought in larger, plus models. Android Oreo was released a couple of weeks back and some companies like OnePlus already have a beta out for Android Oreo. Today's revelation by Samsung CEO all but confirm the news.

Colour options: Samsung launched the Note 8 in four colour options.

Some of the more advanced and new features to be included in the iPhone X will not necessarily migrate to the iPhone 8 Plus.

Launch date: All Warsi said was that "once pre-orders are fulfilled, the smartphone will launch in the market".

In terms of pocket space, the Galaxy S8 comes in at 148.9 x 68.1 x 8mm and weighs 155g. On the left bumper, there is a volume rocker and a dedicated button for Samsung's artificial intelligence (AI) assistant "Bixby". Warsi couldn't confirm whether any of the other Samsung series smartphones will be getting Bixby anytime soon.

We're now in a much wider-thinking mobile landscape, which can only be good news for the market at large. That's a huge number indeed. The S Pen is water resistant, and can be used under water too. "It's about allowing us to do what we've been doing with our desktop PCs for the last 25 years, but in a smaller form factor".

The Apple iPhone X is, without a doubt, the most powerful, capable, and well-designed phone the company has ever released. In India, it's expected to touch 1 lakh rupees.

It's likely that Bixby will power the upcoming smart speaker, which is codenamed "Vega" (according to the rumours) and will likely enable users to control connected devices around the home, such as lights, TVs and thermostats, using voice control.

Apple's iPhone 7 Plus introduced a new level of photography to smartphones and it's iPhone X has continued the trend. GST, while a new iPhone X Leather Folio will be available for RRP A$145 inc. GST.
