Samsung wants to improve its image and recover market share because of Galaxy Note 7 recall faux pas. Apple is looking forward to get its luster back with a major smartphone reboot. Samsung has some exciting announcements for its Galaxy S8 plan, and same as the previous year, it will come out with 2 models.
The major difference in 2017 however, will be the introduction of a new Galaxy S8 PLUS model which will have a 4K display, dual-lens camera and with a full S-Pen support. A virtual home button embedded in the glass will show a sleeker look, and Bezel-free displays will give more screen real estate.
A curved glass front and back with a metal band on the rim is expected to be featured on The iPhone 8. It would be a radical change after three models of the same type handset. Apple fans are happy to hear that news.
Both the Galaxy S8 and iPhone 8 are expected to use an organic light-emitting diode or OLED displays, rather than more common liquid crystal display or LCD. OLED displays have deeper blacks, are slimmer, boast clearer colors and have more power saver compared to LCD displays. See from iTech Post here.
