Smartphone enthusiasts are going to face the greatest dilemma of their life when they will have to decide between Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and Apple iPhone 8. Both are insanely-anticipated devices and both will come with jaw-dropping specs. Moreover, both will burn a large hole in buyers’ wallets. An Apple vs Samsung clash has always been a matter of intense speculation as both the tech moguls have pretty fascinating fan following. Samsung has recently confirmed that it is already developing a Galaxy Note 8 despite the Galaxy Note 7 disaster.

This only shows the confidence the tech giant has in its products and such a brave step is only possible for those who are able to command the masses with futuristic technologies. S amsung's mobile chief D.J. Koh recently told CNET that he is planning to bring “a better, safer and very innovative Note 8.” Thus, it won’t be a cup of tea for Apple to take the top position as competition is set to become fiercer. Samsung has already identified the cause behind the Galaxy Note 7 explosions. The problem was with the batteries by two manufacturers.

Thus, one thing is for certain that the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will have the best of batteries because of an eight-point battery check that also involves x-ray of handsets. Samsung has also teamed up with professors from the University of Cambridge, the University of California, Berkeley and Stanford University for impeccable advice. On the models front, Apple could be releasing three Apple iPhone 8 variants having screen sizes of 4.7, 5.5 and 5.8 inches. The largest model will have an edge-to-edge OLED Display.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 may have only one model. According to Mic, the Apple iPhone 8 won’t have the 3.5mm headphone jack and the physical Home button, which may be incorporated into the display. Moreover, a facial recognition technology has also been tipped. Samsung may bring back the Iris scanner in its Galaxy Note 8 device. The biggest rumour is that the Samsung handset will come with a 30MP primary camera. The prices of both handsets are still a mystery.
