Now a leaked picture has appeared online, revealing the front panels of both the upcoming smartphones.A recent leaked image posted on Chinese social media platform Weibo (via The Android Soul) shows the Galaxy Note 8’s panel compared to the iPhone 8. The image shows a side-by-side comparison of the front panels of the two phones placed besides each other. Importantly, the image depicts that both the Galaxy Note 8 and iPhone 8 will come with near bezel-less designs and huge displays. However, it’s looking increasingly likely that the Galaxy Note 8 will have a much bigger display in comparison to the iPhone 8. Unfortunately, it’s impossible to verify the legitimacy of the image.

Apple iPhone 8

The iPhone 8 is projected to offer a number of new features – after all it will be the tenth anniversary iPhone. If rumours are to be believed, the iPhone 8 could come with a 3D scanner for facial recognition, a bezel-less display, dual rear cameras, wireless charging, and a completely new design. At the same time, there are reports that claim that the Phone 8 could be delayed due to major technology additions added to the device. Rumor has it that Apple is trying to add the TouchID fingerprint scanner beneath the OLED display, but the functionality has not been working as expected. iPhone 8 is also said to cost more than its predecessor. Apple blogger John Gruber thinks the iPhone 8 to start upwards of $1200 ( or approx Rs 77,028)

It will also feature an improved S-Pen, and a smaller 3,300mAh battery. According to reports, Samsung could launch the ‘Emperor Edition’ of the Note 8 with 6GB RAM and 256GB internal memory. Price-wise, the Galaxy Note 8 will reportedly sold for €999 (or approx Rs 75,320), making it the most expensive Samsung smartphone ever.
