Samsung plans to release foldable Galaxy Note next year

The iPhone maker is the master at increasing average revenue for each unit. In case you've forgotten just how good the OnePlus 5 really is, however, I advise you read our full OnePlus 5 review below first, just to put things in context.

Samsung on Tuesday launched its much-hyped smartphone Galaxy Note 8 in New Delhi. Hats off to you, nerds.

The iPhone 8 will cost 699 dollars, and the iPhone 8 Plus 799 dollars.

There's also the Apple Watch element.

Samsung had launched the Note 8 on Aug 23 and is slated to reach showrooms in the USA and United Kingdom on September 15.

But is the iPhone X overpriced? The 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus starts at $799, up from $769.

The new top end Apple iPhone offering has glass on both the front and the back, and it has "surgical-grade" stainless around the sides which is no different from several other smartphones out there. Selfies look better; amusing videos you want to share at the bar suddenly look sharper.

That's contributed to slower sales of the iPhone, a product that accounts for two-thirds of the company's revenue. According to Samsung market research, 87% of Note users are satisfied with their devices and 82% would recommend it to their friends.

We can reasonably expect a larger battery to appear in the iPhone 8 Plus, as Apple attempts to respond to criticism of the lifecycle of its devices. The company claims a 1 in 1,000,000 chances of a random other person being able to look at your phone and unlock it through Face ID.

She won 25 points to just seven for Brady in the second set. "I saw this crowd cheering for me and I was feeling better". She will next face either Ukrainian fourth seed Elina Svitolina or Madison Keys of the United States.

The power of the iPhone has evolved dramatically since it debuted in 2007.

My reasoning has to do with the fact most of the technology showcased by Apple already exists on other phones. But we'll still buy it in droves.

For a company trying to reinvigorate consumer excitement for what has become an annual more-of-the-same iPhone launch event, a new phone that is noticeably more powerful, does more than before and improves productivity could just do the trick. It has allowed the likes of Samsung incorporate display of 6.3 inches in the Galaxy Note 8 without adding weight or girth to it. The Plus version got a US$30 base price bump from a year ago, to US$799-and-up.

Apple TV 4K model will cost $179. The company is packing a lot of technology inside these phones - and charging high prices in return.

With all the changes, the bottom line for the iPhone remains the same a shiny expensive handset.

That's one reason prices for top-of-the-line smartphones have been creeping upward in recent years. That works out to about US$723 million in additional profit, assuming Apple's share count stays constant.

"The battle will continue to be between Apple and Samsung", said Tarun Pathak, analyst at Counterpoint Research. People may not have much choice, though.

Samsung CEO claims that the company is now busy addressing some technological hurdles in commercializing the smartphone. "But there are some tasks still too hard to do on a phone".

That's not great news for shoppers' budgets, but it's terrific for Apple investors.
