Nobody can argue that the Samsung Galaxy Note S Pen has become the best stylus incorporated into the concept of any smartphone, but Apple is looking to introduce something of their own. For years, consumers have been looking for just a bit more with the concept of the iPhone, and as Samsung looks to reinvent the Phablet after its previous failed attempt, Apple looks to do the same.
Samsung has yet to neither confirm or deny the launch of the Galaxy Note 8, but we already know the iPhone 8 or iPhone 7s is due to launch during the 3rd quarter. Numerous leaks have been coming out of South Korea to suggest the Note 8 will not only be back, but it will be bigger, better, and boast some serious upgrades.
Nobody will argue that the South Korean tech giant has to do something big with the concept of the Phablet with everything the Galaxy Note 7 accomplished, good and bad. In a matter of a month, Samsung managed to launch the best smartphone of the year, and weeks later it turned out to be the worst.
The distinguished notion to call the Note 7 the best and worst in the same month has left consumers in a state of confusion as we all look towards the 2017 launch of the Galaxy Note 8. This is already setting the stage on what is sure to be a huge comparison between the Note 8 and iPhone 8 with the accessories being what could actually tip the scales to one over the other.
Samsung already boasts the best stylus on the market, and since Apple launched the Pencil a couple of years back, it’s yet to make it to the concept of the iPhone. This is all expected to change with the upcoming iPhone 8 in 2017 which is expected to rival the functionality and responsiveness of Samsung’s S Pen.
Rumored specs in the Note 8 include a 4K display, Snapdragon 830 or 835 SoC, and at least 6GB of RAM. We’re also hearing the upcoming Phablet will be bigger than the last sporting a 5.10” display with a with a true UHD resolution. Of course everyone wants to know about the battery as we’re also hearing about a partnership looming between LG and Samsung which would turn the battery production over to one of their biggest competitors starting with the Note 8.
The iPhone 8 is also expected to get an upgrade in the specs department which include a full-wraparound OLED display, A11 processor, 6GB RAM, wireless charging and water resistance.
We’ll keep you updated on Samsung’s biggest competitor to the Galaxy Note 7 which should see both flagships launching September of 2017.
