Galaxy Note 8 Gets Record Pre-orders In the US

How Facial Recognition Systems Will Reshape Your Daily Life

Samsung Electronics said it aims to launch a foldable smartphone next year under its Galaxy Note brand.

"As the head of the business, I can say our current goal is next year" Samsung president of mobile business Koh Dong-jin is quoted as saying. Then there's the iPhone X, which is the bold redesign Apple fans have been awaiting for three years now.

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.

He spoke during a press event held in South Korea that announced the phablet Galaxy Note 8 to domestic media. However, nothing can be said about this with certainty as of now.

The iPhone X is Apple's biggest smartphone to be released, thanks to its 143.6mm by 70.9mm by 7.7mm dimensions.

Odell Beckham Jr. practices, says he's dealing with 6-8 week injury
Wheeler probably has a slight edge because the Giants think Fluker is more suited to play guard at this point in his career. That's what Beckham does best, and why he has emerged as one of the league's most risky , not to mention dynamic players.

Koh said the company was very interested in making foldable phones but requires more time to make meaningful innovation and easy-to-use product. Also, the smartphone has been launched in India on the same day when the whole world is waiting for Apple to roll off the sheets from its new iPhone 8 and iPhone X in Cupertino.

While Samsung has happily mentioned suggestions about the folding phone over time, the date of a possible commercial release was never given.

The new device, which could cost more than £1,000, features a face-scanning camera and cable free charging for the first time. It is expected that the speaker will use South Korean company's Bixby voice assistant. There are dual optical image stabilisation on two cameras with lots of moving magnets and a new Quad LED two tone flash. Apple shares fell 0.8 percent to $160.18 after the announcement. Customers can pre-book the device and will get it by September 21. And it looks like Samsung has some bold plans for the family beginning next year. This version will feature 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal storage and is priced at RMB 4699 ($721).

Not to be outdone by Samsung's $900 Galaxy, Apple's latest phone will start at $999.
