But when it comes to smartphones, the company has always been regarded as an underdog while its fellow South Korean rival Samsung continues to dominate the phone world. It somehow steals some of the thunder from the latest Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ but a plausible reason was raised by Phone Arena.
According to IHS Markit analysts, Samsung is estimated to pay out $301.60 in parts for every one of its Galaxy S8 handsets.
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 edge is now getting the Nougat treatment thanks to Verizon.
SquareTrade didn’t test the phones’ battery, the source of problems that led to a recall of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 phone. Aside from that, it was also worth mentioning that Samsung has been working on a foldable display smartphone for some years already and this is a secret project which the company calls Project Valley.
Even though it was not yet released, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will be making an undeniable standback for the company, after recalling the Galaxy Note 7 a year ago. The devices are powered by Samsung’s very own Exynos 8895 – Octa-core (2.35 GHz Quad + 1.9 GHz Quad), 64-bit, 10 nm process. The Galaxy S8 and S8+ went on sale in the US on April 21 and in S. Korea a few days before that.
And today, the refurbished Galaxy Note 7 along with the original Galaxy Note 7 have received Wi-Fi certification from Wi-Fi Alliance, which means that the product launch is actually nearing. Depending on the condition of the device, Samsung could sell the recalled/used Note 7 with a new battery at a cheaper price.
Unsurprisingly, both models did well in water-drop tests.
It is available to buy in USA and in other markets it is still on Pre-Orders.
With a dual-camera also tipped for the Galaxy Note 8, it promises to be a particularly powerful and impressive phablet.
