Apple has faced mounting competition from South Korea's Samsung as well as from Chinese smartphone makers Huawei, Oppo and Vivo, which have all had years to catch up to Apple's technology.

"It's been known that Samsung has been working on the foldable display for many years", said IHS Market analyst Jusy Hong. That's what consumers may be asking themselves when Apple unveils its newest iPhone on Tuesday. Yes, that's right, the same folks who make the screens for Samsung's phones will be doing the same for Apple.

Priced at Rs. 67,900, the new Samsung Galaxy Note8 sports quite a handful of impressive features such as a stunning infinity display, a dual-camera setup that is a first from the house of Samsung, along with a powerful and improved S Pen. The arch rival Samsung has put Apple under stress by opting aggressive pricing strategy for Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+ and Note 8.

The new iPhone 8 and 8 Plus (lacking the induction-charging feature) will continue to offer an unbreakable aluminum backing - another factor, besides price, that may persuade shoppers that a mere $700 phone is all they need. That additional profit from just US$10 more on the average iPhone is more than the annual net income of almost half the companies in the S&P 500.

The update could start with a beta programme for select users before it rolls out globally to other Samsung phones as well.

People have been talking about the Samsung Galaxy X for a good long while now.

Samsung's Galaxy S8, on the other hand, is a gorgeous sandwich of glass and metal, curved edges and sumptuous design. It's the fastest fingerprint reader I've used on any phone and it really does add to the feeling that you're using one of the fastest smartphones on the planet.

But as striking as the new phones look, the end of the bezel isn't a radical revolution in the history of smartphones.

But maybe the biggest effect of such a big and compelling screen is that it makes your phone more attractive and enticing.

At this point, the only thing that might stop you is biology. Apple's iPhone 8 uses an A11 chip that likely is built using the same 10nm manufacturing process as both the 835 and Exynos 8895.

The device appears set to give Apple real tough competition in the premium segment.

As you can see from our link above, this isn't the first time Samsung made such a claim. Obviously, the wraparound display will be conspicuous by its absence, while the smartphone will probably retain the Home button that has been a feature of Apple smartphones over the years. Well, the honor goes to a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, and the model to introduce this feature before anyone else is the ELIFE E7.

The company, however, still struggles in the Chinese market dominated by local players such as Huawei, OPPO, vivo and Xiaomi as well as ongoing geopolitical tension between Korea and China over the deployment of the US -led Terminal High Altitude Area Defense antimissile system.
