Apple Just Raised the Price to Buy a New iPhone

For those that didn't preorder the Galaxy Note 8, you should be able to walk into a Best Buy, Walmart or Target store to get your mitts on one today. But the arrival of the iPhone X and Samsung's $930 Note 8 seem to mark the beginning of an era in which everyday smartphones are carrying a larger price tag than ever before. The consistent showcase of flexible display panels by Samsung even led some to speculate that the company could be unveiling foldable phones at IFA 2017. When Samsung has Galaxy 8 and Note 8 in their box an iPhone 7S or 7S Plus wouldn't be equivalent.

Galaxy Note 8 is priced at Rs67,900 and will be available in India from 21 September in two colours-Midnight Black and Maple Gold. Of course, the new phone is expected to have latest features, which will probably add to the number of days it would take to release it into the market.

The iPhone X signals a major shift in design and features for Apple.

However, the company faces fierce competition from local rivals, such as Huawei Technologies Co's P10 and P10 Plus and Xiaomi Corp's Mi Mix 2, and the much-anticipated iPhone X rolled out by Apple Inc, the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone.

While sticking to your traditional values is good, Apple has done so dearly with the iPhone 8.

"At Samsung, we're constantly innovating to deliver new smartphone experiences that inspire, empower and delight", said Tim Baxter, President and Chief Executive Officer at Samsung Electronics North America. Last year, images of what the phone - dubbed "Galaxy X" - could potentially look like surfaced on SamMobile. The iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X will all come with the new system already installed. Then, the Galaxy Note 8 screen works amazingly outdoors and has 1200 nits of brightness compared to the iPhone X at 625 nits.

According to reports, the global pre-orders for the Note 8 are far higher than its predecessor Note 7.

Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Instead, they would call it iPhone X. Apple understands this and this is why uses X in its promotional videos.

We do not intend to discourage Apple fans or anyone who wants to go for an iPhone 8.
