Let’s be honest, people are not excited about a new smartphone anymore. Whether it’s an iPhone, Samsung, Sony, Huawei, Google Pixel, it feels kind of the same products with just different model names.
People want innovation, with the way technology is moving if you can’t innovate, forget it soon or later you’ll disappear. As a matter of fact, years ago Nokia was the big thing, and they have dominated the mobile industry for more than a decade. However, the mobile giant has fallen due to lack of innovation.
Apple for quite a while has been using the same design on its iPhones, which raised people’s eyebrows. It seems like for the 10th anniversary of the iPhone, Apple will certainly bring something new. No doubt iPhone fans can’t wait for the next iPhone since the iPhone 7 didn’t do so well as it was expected. Will the iPhone 8 overshadow the Galaxy S8 success?
Regardless of what happens in September, Samsung has nothing to worry about. On the contrary, Apple should be nervous to not disappoint. Considering the epic fail of the Note 7 last year, Samsung was able to make this kind of come back, by all means, the Galaxy S8 is ready for whatever Apple has in store.
