WORLDVIEW: The $1000 iPhone 8: Are we really going to buy it?

This is the 10th year of Apple iPhones and the company is expected to commemorate it with an anniversary edition smartphone.

It is the first time that the chief of the South Korean handset maker has publicly mentioned a specific plan for the next-generation product.

As the device was unveiled earlier this month in IFB Berlin, we know its complete specifications, features and design aspects, but the only unknown thing about the debutant in India is Its pricing.

Qualcomm's list mentions Xiaomi's Mi Mix smartphone as the one to usher in 'barely-there bezels', which has since continued with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30.

Even though the Galaxy A7 2017 was cleared by the Wi-Fi Alliance alongside the Galaxy A5 2017, there's still no word on when the latter will be updated to Nougat. Once the beta update gets tested thoroughly, the update could be rolled out worldwide much faster than last year as the company has started using multi-CSC firmwares. The new application functions together with the latest iOS 11.

Post the Note 8 release, all you hear about is the iPhone 8.

With Galaxy Note 8 Samsung promoted its DeX docking station.

The 8MP front camera also comes with optical image stabilisation.

The operating system of this grand new phone has Android 7.0 Nougat and the users can able upgrade to the latest version, Oreo. The event will be held at Steve Jobs Theater at its new campus.

Several reviewers have also pointed out that the Note 8 retains the same drawback as the S8 and S8 Plus by locating the fingerprint security sensor on the back of the device alongside the dual cameras.

Edge-to-Edge display, facial recognition, wireless charging? It will also reboot faster than all the Android devices. The top four brands - Huawei Technologies Co., OPPO Electronics, Vivo Mobile Communications Co., and Xiaomi Inc. - took up 69 percent, they showed. There might be three - count 'em - three iPhones launching this year. For those who are interested in watching the keynote, the company also live-stream the event via Samsung India official website. Following the same, the reports tipped that Samsung has received over 2.5 lakh registrations for the device. The smartphone comes equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC/Exynos 8895 SoC and mostly likely the Indian variant will get the Exynos chipset. Expect these to be the cheaper alternatives come launch.
