Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Galaxy Note 7

Samsung is rumoured to be launching its much-anticipated Galaxy Note 8 at the end of August. The device will succeed the Note 7, which was a fantastic device until its battery issues destroyed its reputation and left it for dead.

Nothing official has been announced regarding the Note 8's specs from Samsung itself but there have been plenty of rumours to help us see how it might compare to the Note 7. With that in mind, here are the two devices neck-in-neck, based on the speculation.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Galaxy Note 7: What's the rumoured difference?

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Note 7: Design

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 was a beautiful device featuring a metal and glass sandwich design, a dual-edge display and a singular camera lens on the rear with the flash positioned alongside it on the right. As it was a Note device, it also featured the S-Pen stylus that had a slot built into the design zte parts .

A home button with a embedded fingerprint sensor was situated below the display on the front and it measured 153.5 x 73.9 x 7.9mm and hit the scales at 169g. Like the Galaxy S8 and S8+, the Note 7 was also IP68 water and dust resistant.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is rumoured to be taking some of its design cues from the Galaxy S8 and S8+, offering an almost all-screen front, a dual-edge display again and a metal and glass sandwich design with a built-in stylus. If this is the case, expect significantly reduced bezels compared to the Note 7.

Reports and renders suggest the new Note will be slightly thicker than the S8 and S8+, though exact measurements have yet to be leaked. Some reports did originally suggest the Note 8 would have a fingerprint sensor built into the display but it is now thought the sensor will be positioned on the rear next to a dual-camera setup. The Note 8 is also expected to be IP68 water and dust resistant like its predecessor.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs Note 7: Display

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 featured a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED dual-edge display, which is the same size as all the previous Note devices from the Note 3 onwards.

It had an aspect ratio of 16:9 and it offered a Quad HD resolution, resulting in a pixel density of 518ppi. The Note 7 was also the first to introduce HDR compliancy in a zte replacement parts , making it compatible with HDR content on Netflix and Amazon Video, even if it was a feature a little before its time due to lack of content.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is reported to be increasing the display size to 6.3-inches, which would make it a little larger than the 6.2-inch Samsung Galaxy S8+, though we're not expecting the footprint to change much as the aspect ratio is also reported to be the same as the S8+ at 18.5:9.

It is thought the new Note will also have the same Infinity Display as the S8 and S8+ models, meaning an AMOLED panel again with a dual-edge display, though the resolution is thought to be increasing to 4K. If this is the case, the Note 8 would offer a pixel density of 699ppi, which would put it in a good position for the new Gear VR. Expect Mobile HDR to be on board again too, this time with a little more purpose.

Latest huge Galaxy Note 8 leak

Late last week, a blogger with a very strong track record leaked a slew of details surrounding Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 8. According to the report, Samsung’s hotly anticipated new flagship phablet will feature killers specs highlighted by a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with the same 18.5:9 aspect ratio as the Galaxy S8, 6GB of RAM, Exynos 8895 or Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 chipsets depending on region, dual 12-megapixel rear cameras, a 3,300 mAh battery, and an updated S Pen stylus with new features. All of that sounds like terrific news, but there was one other detail offered in the report that isn’t very good news: The Galaxy Note 8’s price.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Leak

According to the report — which, again, comes from a source in a position to know — the Galaxy Note 8 will launch with a €999 price point in Europe. In other words, after taxes the Note 8 will retail for more than €1,000. In the United States, the leak suggests a likely price tag of “a little over $900,” which would put the price of the Galaxy Note 8 at just under $1,000 after taxes.

Welcome to the era of the $1,000 cell phone battery wholesale .

Apple has been known as a trendsetter for decades, but the company appears to have started a troubling trend last year when it increased the price of each iPhone 7 Plus tier by $20. Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus would be the next phones to launch with heftier than normal price tags, and multiple rumors have suggested that the upcoming iPhone 8 will cost around $1,000 when it’s released later this year. Now, it appears as though the Galaxy Note 8 can be added to the growing list of current and flagship phones with monstrous price tags.

Pricing always increases for everything over time, so why is it so troubling that leading flagship phones are getting more expensive? Let’s consider the two companies currently pushing up smartphone prices.

Apple is the most valuable company in the world, and it’s also the most profitable consumer electronics company in history. That record-shattering profitability is thanks almost entirely to the company’s iPhone lineup, which provides margins that are borderline obscene. Meanwhile, Samsung posted a net profit of $6.8 billion in the most recent quarter, and that was even before the company’s new Galaxy S8 flagship phones were released. Do these companies really need to fleece customers even more than they’re already being fleeced?

The problem, of course, is that the demand is there. Plenty of other smartphone makers are selling comparable phones at much lower prices, but not many people in tier 1 smartphone markets seem to care. In the US, for example, those insanely expensive wholesale iPhone parts are paid for in monthly installments so the price tags are far less daunting. Worst of all, sky-high sales numbers despite the recent price increases mean we can likely expect this troubling trend to continue for the foreseeable future.

Microsoft flagship smartphone Lumia 960

Microsoft has always flirted with the idea of having its own mobile ecosystem and the hardware to run it. The first handheld devices were running a customized version of Windows, but Microsoft wanted more, hence the deal with Nokia.

Unfortunately, Microsoft's apple replacement parts business (and plans) is a bit of a limbo right now. If we are to believe the latest reports, the Redmond-based company hasn't yet given up on Windows Phone, but it's neither launching any new smartphones anytime soon.

That being said, let's take a look at what Microsoft has given its customers during the golden age of Windows Phone that abruptly ended with the sale of the Nokia mobile division.

One of the flagships that never saw the light of day, Lumia 960 reached prototype status before being canceled by Microsoft. We had already shown you a few pictures of the phone last week, but it looks like someone has just published a couple of more images of the unreleased Lumia 960.

This particular prototype unit looks pretty raw, and it's missing the display. However, we do know that the etrade supply should have been equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, a large Quad HD display and a 20-megapixel PureView camera on the back.

An aluminum body should have made sure the Lumia 960 is appealing enough, while the stereo front speakers would have set it apart from the previous Lumia 950 flagship.

Galaxy S8's voice sidekick is may better than Siri

The clickable button on the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is finally about to fulfill its purpose. Located just under the volume rocker on the S8's left side, the Bixby button will launch brand new voice software that apple replacement parts owners have been waiting months for.

"It's not a voice assistant," Quam Erogbogbo, senior director and head of services for Samsung's services and new business division, said of Bixby Voice. "It's an intelligent interface that will change the way you interact with the phone."

Samsung doesn't want Galaxy S8 owners to compare Bixby Voice to Apple's Siri, Google's Assistant (which is also on the Galaxy S8) and Amazon's Alexa because it does some slightly different things. Bixby Voice puts searching your phone ahead of searching online, and it won't track your packages or tell you when to leave for the airport. Instead, it promises to do with your voice everything you can tap or type with your digits.

For example, instead of scrolling through layers of menus to look up your SIM card's phone number (three steps if the S8's locked), Bixby Voice will deliver it in one step -- yes, even if the phone is locked. You can toggle settings, do a ton with the camera and photos, and even set short, customized commands for long, specific steps (this the my favorite Bixby feature so far).

But for all intents and purposes, it's easiest to think of Bixby Voice as a sidekick of the Siri/Assistant/Alexa breed, because you do use your voice and the software does actually assist you with your phone.

I got a chance to try out Bixby Voice on the Galaxy S8. It's early days, and this is a development build (basically a "beta" version). I'm still learning it, but generally, I like the concept, as I like any shortcut that can spare my fingers from repetitive swipes and taps. There are idiosyncrasies I've already discovered and more that will likely emerge as time goes on.

Samsung will also bolster Bixby's capabilities in the coming days, and expand Bixby Voice to a wide range of Samsung appliances, like a future fridge, washer or TV.

There's a lot more Bixby testing to go, so keep an eye out for updates to this story and new comparisons as the weeks go on. And remember, beta software changes all the time, so my first experience here is far from the final word on Bixby Voice.

If you've signed up for Samsung's early access program, you'll start seeing Bixby Voice roll out for your etrade supply . And for everyone else? Bixby Voice is already live in South Korea. In the US, it'll be available "as soon as possible" (we're still waiting to hear on other regions, too).

Will HTC produce the Google pixel smartphone?

It was previously rumoured that HTC had signed off on a two-year contract with Google, which included creating the first batch of Google Pixel wholesale phone parts last year. This purported contract is also said to have involved manufacturing the Google Pixel 2, an unconfirmed handset tipped to launch later this year.

Google Pixel XL

Lending credence to that theory is a new report from specialist blog HTC Soku, which details new evidence uncovered from system files within HTC’s flagship iphone parts wholesale ..

The ‘Ocean’ moniker comes as no surprise, as that’s the widely known codename for the new HTC U11. But it’s the latter two codenames that are of particular interest. Last year’s Pixel and Pixel XL were built under the codenames S1 and M1, so logic follows that this year’s successors will be called S2 and M2.

It’s also important to note that there were originally three Google Pixel devices rumoured for 2017: Walleye, Muskie, and Taimen. However, rumour has it that Muskie has been cancelled, so it now seems likely that Walleye and Taimen are the S1 and M1 devices we’ve now expecting to see later this year.

Unfortunately, none of this information has been officially confirmed by HTC or Google, so take this report with due caution. It’s entirely possible that the details in the article are inaccurate, and even if they’re not, Google may still change its plans ahead of the late 2017 launch we’re expecting.

Will the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 be your next daily driver?

Last year, Samsung launched one of the most noteworthy devices with the Galaxy Note 7. It was a handset that featured a big, brilliant display, a gorgeous design, and plenty of high-end specifications and features. It was a device that had propelled the already popular Galaxy Note phablet line into a whole new level. And yet, it wouldn't last.

We all know what happened soon after the Galaxy Note 7 arrived on the public market. It's a well-documented situation that spanned months, two major recalls, and, eventually, the outright removal of the handset from store shelves. A lot of people who picked up a Galaxy Note 7 were forced to get rid of what was probably their favorite wholesale phone parts , which could leave many with a bad taste in their mouth for the Samsung brand.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7

For all intents and purposes, though, the company doesn't seem to have been hit critically hard. There were a lot of reports last year detailing that folks who did get rid of their Galaxy Note 7 simply switched to another Samsung-branded smartphone, and it looks like the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are doing pretty well for the company.

So it isn't too surprising that they've got a Galaxy Note 8 on the way.

There was a lot of talk about Samsung axing the Galaxy Note line of phablets after last year's debacle, but I'm honestly glad to see that they aren't just dropping it entirely. Yes the Galaxy Note 7 was a mess, but I think the brand is salvageable. And I think the Galaxy Note 8 will show us that. It'll be another successful device for Samsung.

Today it was reported that Samsung plans on unveiling the Galaxy Note 8 near the end of August. The 26 of the month, probably. That's a little later than when the Galaxy Note 7 debuted, but I don't think that's a sign of any major issues. It will still probably land on the shelves before Apple gets around to releasing their iPhone 8, so that's probably all that Samsung is focusing on. Well, and building a phone that won't explode.

I think it's a safe bet that the Galaxy Note 8 is going to be a high-end and powerful flagship iphone parts wholesale . It'll have an amazing display, probably even better than the already ridiculously impressive Galaxy S8 panel, and it'll even have two cameras on the back. It'll be a powerhouse with a huge screen, an improved S Pen, and maybe even the kitchen sink this time around.

So I'm curious to find out whether or not it's a handset that you've already set your sights on. Whether you've upgraded recently or not, are you planning on making the Galaxy Note 8 your next daily driver? And what about you folks out there who had the Galaxy Note 7? After that situation are you willing to jump on board with a new Galaxy Note phablet? Let me know!

OnePlus 5 Camera Specifications Revealed

After many leaks and teasers, the OnePlus 5 is set to go official on Tuesday. Hours before the launch, the leaks continue to flow, and we now have a full-fledged press render leak showing us the back and front of the OnePlus 5, revealing key design details.

OnePlus 5 Camera Specifications Revealed, Press Render Leaks Ahead of Today's Launch

The OnePlus 5 camera is at the centre of The Verge's video on the phone parts wholesale , which includes executives talking about thought process gone into making the handset. The video starts with glimpses of the OnePlus factory in Shenzhen and how things work there. While competitors like Apple and Samsung are moving towards a bezel-less display, OnePlus says that it still lacks the resources to do that. Hence, it focuses on building a camera that competes with the best in the market.

While procuring the hardware for a dual camera setup was difficult, OnePlus managed to do so with the help of its sister company Oppo. The video confirms that the OnePlus 5 sports two rear sensors at the back – one main 16-megapixel Sony sensor with f/1.7 aperture and another 20-megapixel Sony telephoto lens with f/2.6 aperture. In the video, OnePlus claims that this is "the highest resolution dual-camera system on a smartphone today." The company also notes that there is a portrait mode, and that 80 percent of the camera’s success is because of the work put into its software, and that this will be the differentiating factor for the smartphone.

Now coming to the press render leak, noted tipster Evan Blass has shared this latest image of the OnePlus 5. It is seen sporting a dual camera setup at the back with the OnePlus logo sitting in the centre. The antenna bands placement and the overall form appears to be heavily inspired by theiPhone 7 Plus design aesthetic. In the front, there is a Home Button seen at the bottom of the display, and this is where the fingerprint scanner will presumably be placed. There’s no bezel on the left and right edge of the smartphone, but the top chin is visible with the front camera and earpiece. The power key sits on the right edge of the smartphone while the volume and switch keys sit on the left edge.OnePlus 5 launch event, specifications

The OnePlus 5 launch event will begin at 12pm EDT (9:30pm IST) on Tuesday. You can watch the live stream on the company's US site. In India, the smartphone will launch at an event in Mumbai on June 22, and the smartphone looks set to be made available on the same day exclusively on Amazon India.As for leaked specifications, the OnePlus 5 is expected to sport a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) display - though a QHD display has also been rumoured in the past - with a range of DCI-P3 colours to ensure colour accuracy. 6GB and 8GB of RAM variants are expected, with their corresponding 64GB and 128GB inbuilt storage options.At front, the phone spare parts has been tipped to come with a 16-megapixel sensor. OnePlus 5 has been tipped to house a 3300mAh battery and come with NFC and Bluetooth 5.0 support as well. In a series of tweets, the global Twitter handle of OnePlus has teased few more features like "always connected", which could be a hint at dual-SIM support on the OnePlus 5. In another tweet, the company teased improved Dash Charge capabilities of the OnePlus 5. It wrote, "charging ahead."
