It seems like everyone has their sights and Christmas wish lists fixed on the Galaxy Note 8 following Samsung’s recent release of their stunning new flagship phone.
With a powerful primary dual camera system and overall larger screen real estate in the form of a vibrant 6.3-inch Infinity Display, the Note 8 is essentially a bigger version of the highly successful Galaxy S8 series minus the literally explosive issues that plagued its predecessor.
But the Note 8 isn’t the only phone out there to keep an eye out for. Let’s take a look at other developments happening with other smartphone brands and their flagship lines.
Apple iPhone X
We finally get some sort of confirmation what the upcoming 10th anniversary iPhone device will be called. The rumor mill was apparently right on the money after a game developer did some software code digging and discovered that the new iPhone model will be officially called the iPhone X.
The iPhone X is rumored to launch alongside the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus which are incremental upgrades to the iPhone 7 line.
Google Pixel 2
The tech giant’s upcoming flagship phone is rumored to have new features including trimmed bezels for a more modern look, an Always On display and IP68 dust and water resistance. The Google Pixel 2 models are also said to ditch the headphone port for the new trend which is USB Type-C.
Aside from these, there have been contrasting reports from different sources that claim that Google’s new flagship line will either be powered by a new SnapDragon 836 processor or the current SnapDragon 835 chipset. The Pixel 2 line will reportedly be released this October along with other Google gadgets.
Lenovo has officially launched its new K8 line in India last week. The K8’s main features include a 5.2-inch HD display, a 13MP rear camera and 8MP front-facing camera powered by the MediaTek Helio P20 processor backed by a 4000mAh battery pack.
Meanwhile, its bigger sibling, the K8 Plus boasts better features like a 5.2-inch full-HD IPS display, a dual-rear camera setup (13MP + 5MP) powered by a more advanced octa-core MediaTek Helio P25 processor. It will also run on the same battery pack.
You can score the K8 for $200 (roughly P10,100) while the K8 Plus goes for $245 (roughly P12,400).
Xiaomi Mi Note 3
The Chinese electronics and software giant isn’t planning on getting left behind after it officially launched the Mi Note 3 which is a larger version of their Mi 6 smartphone.
Xiaomi’s new smartphone has a 5.5-inch screen and 6GB RAM. It has an unusual camera system comprised of a 16MP selfie camera and its rear-facing 12MP dual cameras. These are powered by Snapdragon 660 chipset that runs on a 3500mAh battery capacity.
The Mi Note 3’s price range is estimated to be roughly at P19,500 - P23,400.
