According to the latest report recently released by Gartner, the top five smartphone vendors across the globe during the third quarter of this year are Samsung, Apple, Huawei, Oppo, and Xiaomi, and except for Apple, all of them have registered double digit growth during the the three month span. Apple only recorded an increase in smartphone sales of 5.7 percent (more on Apple later).
Strategy Analytics has recently released a new report that says that the volume of smartphone shipments in the United States mobile market has hit 39.5 million units during the third quarter of this year. That figure however represents a 2 percent decrease compared to that of Q3 2016 (40.1 million units).
The answer is no for now. Yes, it is true that batteries of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 are being recalled as of the moment, but there is not going to be another Galaxy Note 7 disaster this time. First of all, it is not the South Korean phone maker’s fault this time.
During a very recent press event held in the Big Apple, Samsung took the opportunity to officially announce its highly awaited flagship devices. But that is not all, the South Korean tech giant also unveiled loads of other interesting stuff. Here is your guide to all the shiny new toys that the company has just introduced.
Samsung is set to formally introduce its latest Galaxy offering -- the Galaxy S8 -- this week, and like any smartphone release from the South Korean phone maker, this one is burdened with high expectations.
Noted leaker Evan Blass has recently served a new leaked image of Samsung’s highly awaited flagship device for this year, the Galaxy S8, and it appears that it is the real deal. Phone makers would normally want to save every last detail before unveiling their best mobile products, but for Samsung, it probably would not mind the extra hype for its latest smartphone offering.
