Top 3 Smartphones to buy in 2017
Samsung also releases various other devices which are quite innovative, such as the Samsung Galaxy Folder smartphones.
At Rs 51,990, LG G6 has to compete with Apple iPhone 7, OnePlus 3T, Google Pixel and the newly-launched Samsung Galaxy S8 – a real tough fight in the premium space.
Samsung sent me a Galaxy S8 to review a month ago, and my personal T-Mobile orchid gray model arrived just a day after my review went live. The said device has reportedly already received certification from the Wireless Power Consortium.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 7R has that new name (R for refurbished perhaps?) and a smaller battery at 3,200mAh plus the latest Android 7.1.1 out of the box. This new phone will feature various high-end features such as wireless charging, NFC, Samsung Pay, as well as a fingerprint scanner.
Samsung tends to release various off-beat phones for local markets. However, now a new report coming from South Korean daily Chosun Ilbo, cited by The Investor suggest that the refurbished phone will cost around $440, which is roughly Rs. 28,300. Those reports were not based on any official word from the company, but then came the official word without any confirmed launch date for the device, however.
Rumors were clamoring that the Galaxy S8 would feature a dual-camera to encourage more sales ever since the Galaxy Note7 fallout took place but it looks like Samsung has other intentions that it would like to bring to fruition.
According to T-Mobile, the “un-carrier”, starting today (May 12) any T-Mobile One customer who buys a Galaxy S8 and agrees to a 24-month contract gets, wait for it, a pre-paid card that equals the value of the second S8. In terms of optics, The Samsung J3 (2017) features a 5MP main shooter at the back, as well as a 2MP front-facing camera. The phablet design above is still very much impractical, if we factor in the thinness to the space needs for battery – but if Samsung can incorporate a thin battery to it, why not?
