Apple introduces iPhone 8, iPhone X

That additional profit from just US$10 more on the average iPhone is more than the annual net income of almost half the companies in the S&P 500. It looks much less like a OnePlus phone now, and more like something Huawei or Honor might produce, except that the camera module isn't flush with the back of the phone.

Galaxy Note8 is IP68 certified Water and dust resistant and features Heart Rate Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Iris Sensor, Fingerprint sensor. Only the Galaxy S8 has a headphone jack.

Apple is taking center stage today as it launches its latest iPhone models, but the vaunted tech giant might want to look over its shoulder.

The OnePlus 5 has been having a challenging time of it recently, with superb mid-price phones seemingly raining from the skies, but one thing's for sure: Apple's iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X launch won't threaten its position as the best value mid-price phone on the market.

Specs: Both phones have top-end specs.

The new Apple A11 "Bionic" processor is set to be a performance leader if the benchmarks we've seen online are anything to go by.

Nonetheless, the display included in the iPhone 8 Plus should be pretty decent, although it will be interesting to see whether Apple upgrades the resolution.

Price: The Samsung Galaxy S8 starts at £689, with the Plus model hitting £769.

Samsung has put its woes of last year's combustible phablet, the Galaxy Note 7, behind them.

Well, with the iPhone X your only option is to use the passcode feature as the physical home button/fingerprint scanner has been removed for the larger screen.

Face ID has been introduced, so you can now use it instead of Touch ID.

With every release, Samsung brings an array of impressive features to the forth. While the concept of an "all screen" smartphone has begun to catch on among Android device makers, the iPhone X is the first device to embrace the concept on the iOS side. Running the Galaxy S8 is a Snapdragon 835 CPU, while the iPhone 8 has an Apple-made A11 chip.

The iPhone X will be dual camera smartphone but the orientation of the cameras is expected to be different on it.

Secondly, the S Pen stylus gets a lot of new tricks in the form of glance, which lets you continue working while peeking (or glancing to a page or app open in background), there is magnify mode with 300 percent magnification, and S Translate feature which lets you translate a word or an entire paragraph from one language to the other. The Galaxy S8 comes with a 12-megapixel Dual Pixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, Both come with optical image stabilisation and autofocus.

The new iPhone 8 will keep its predecessor's size - 4.7 inches _ but have a higher starting price of $699, up from $649. Apparently, one of the main components of the Samsung Galaxy foldable smartphone isn't readily available yet.

We can reasonably expect a larger battery to appear in the iPhone 8 Plus, as Apple attempts to respond to criticism of the lifecycle of its devices.
