Samsung To Make Google Play Default Music App On All Devices

Xiaomi Mi6 rivals the Galaxy S8 with Snapdragon 835 chip, £280 price tag

"The new Samsung S8 and S8+ are packed with a plethora of features that have set a new standard for the Samsung Galaxy series".

Samsung Electronics is apparently suffering a supply shortage of Galaxy S8 in Korea following record-breaking preorders, industry sources said on April 20.

Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus are all set to hit the market, but some late modifications to the models by the manufacturer are raising skepticism among the buyers. The tech giant kicked off sales of the new flagship in South Korea and the United States on Friday. Through Monday, more than a million Korean consumers had placed preorders on the device.

The company says the higher BOM costs appear to be part of a trend "that reflects something of an arms race" between Apple, Samsung and other mobile brands. And now, towards the end of 2017, Apple will launch the anniversary edition of the iPhone, which will most probably be called either iPhone 8 or iPhone X, as far as rumor has it at least.

Wall St. rallies as earnings lead charge
Facebook (FB) shares rose 1.3% a day after the social media company announced a new cameras-based augmented reality platform. Elsewhere, Charles Schwab rose 71 cents, or 1.9 percent, to $38.62 and Prudential climbed $1.42, or 1.4 percent, to $104.99.

For Samsung loyalists, one week seems like an eternity for them. "This is not a defect but just a matter of settings, something that can be adjusted by the user", Samsung said.

The company is also highly likely to increase its marketing budget this year in a bid to regain its reputation following the Note 7 sales suspension over a battery defect, he said.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has a bill of materials (BOM) that cost $301.60 Dollars (approximately 407.57 CAD), according to a preliminary estimate by IHS Markit, making it much pricier than previous Samsung smartphones. "This is a tremendous innovation that makes GS8 an even more compelling choice for customers". The company has now pronounced it a software issue rather than a hardware quality bump as earlier expected. It will possibly sport a bigger and better version of the S8+'s Infinity Display as last year's Note 7 had a dual edge screen. Such problems can occur if non-memory chips do not match.
