Nevertheless, Flurry attributes the 5 percent increase compared to a year ago to the Galaxy S8 launch that succeeded the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, when Samsung had to recall the exploding device twice. Notably, Samsung has not commented on the same yet. The chipset maker recently announced the successor to Snapdragon 835 processor, which is powering most of the flagship devices launched this year.
This smartphone is expected to be released in Chine in April 2018 and everyone is wondering if the Chinese company will be able to rival in the West with the likes of Apple and Samsung. While there are some nifty little touches included in the most recent iOS 11 system, they don't really add up to the sort of functionality that the Galaxy S8 boasts. Talking about its bigger brother, the Galaxy S9 Plus, it features a vertically arranged dual camera setup. The company took it Twitter to announce the January 4 launch, just days ahead of CES 2018 in Las Vegas. Further, it sports a 13-megapixel camera sensor on the back with an LED flash and an 8-megapixel camera sensor on the front.
Galaxy Note 9 might be the most popular and favourite phablet of many in 2018.
Looking ahead to 2018, Samsung said in its Q3 financial results, released October 31, that it plans to "strengthen its leadership in the high-end market with flagship smartphones and improve profitability through optimizing product lineups".
Samsung is reportedly planning to unveil its next flagship smartphone in February.
Firstly, design is obviously a key aspect of the Galaxy S8 vs iPhone 8 comparison, and neither phone lets down consumers here. The most interesting part about this is that there is now a notch, similar to what the iPhone X has.
Samsung acknowledged the problem, saying only a limited number of units were affected.
