Samsung Galaxy S8 or iPhone 8 – the most anticipated smartphones of the year. Samsung has traditionally used the MWC to have shown of the flagship smartphones of the new generation, but top-end machine this year, can bypass the event by. As one Twitter user this year premiered the Galaxy S8 will be held later on 29 March at a special event.
Apple is trying to keep the cost of the iPhone at the same level, despite the increase of storage capacity. Smartphones Samsung Galaxy S series correspond roughly to the price of “Apple” smartphones. But this year the situation may change.
A source, who called the date of presentation of the Galaxy S8, told that the minimum cost of the new Korean flagship will be $850. Quite a lot, especially if the iPhone 8 will cost the same as the iPhone 7, says Chris Smith of BGR.
$850 costs to customers 256-Gigabyte version of the iPhone 7. If you add another $20, you can purchase the iPhone 7 Plus with a storage capacity of 128 GB.
Even if the Galaxy S8 for $849 will be the same amount of memory as the iPhone, the price can not be considered affordable. On the other hand, if the rumors are true, this year Apple will release three new smartphones – the two iPhone models iPhone 7s and 8. And it can affect the pricing policy of the company.
Galaxy S8 should go on sale about a month after the official presentation at the 17th week of the year, which covers the period from 24 to 30 April.
