Qualcomm Tries to Steal Spotlight From Apple, iPhone X

"From augmented reality to Gigabit LTE and Ultra HD video on mobile, we tackle the hard system-level problems early on to create a low-barrier of entry for the entire mobile ecosystem, established and incumbent companies alike".

Locally, the outright price for the iPhone X starts at $1579, and that's for the 64GB model.

The 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus has a full HD display with a 1,300:1 typical contrast ratio and features two 12 MP cameras on the back. Pre-orders for the iPhone X begin October 27 and the device ships by November 3, while the 8/8 Plus can be ordered starting September 15 and will start shipping a week later. Consumers can expect to pay in the region of $900 over the 24-month terms of such contracts.

While everyone from the tipsters to the leaks referred to the new iPhones as the iPhone 7s, the iPhone 7s Plus and the iPhone 8, a recent leak changed all of this. Let's face it, the iPhone X is the device people will want, but most will go for the iPhone 8 simply because the X is priced so high.

With the release of the iPhone X having been confirmed by a major leak in the last 24 hours, this is undoubtedly the least secretive Apple product release in the history of the corporation.

After Apple launched their iPhone range, the company hopes the new high-end phone, expected to be called the iPhone X, will silence critics who say the company has lost its innovation edge. Notorious Apple blogger John Gruber commented that the information seems to have emanated direct from Apple, with the data being provided by a rogue worker.

Samsung is scheduled to hold a local media event for the Galaxy Note8 phones in China today. The new processor also comes with a three-core graphics accelerator that was designed by Apple and is 30 percent more powerful than the previous generation.

Display resolution: Samsung's Note 8 has the best smartphone display ever and Samsung gives you the option to toggle between three resolutions so you can choose brilliant quality or longer battery life. This feature will deliver both gaming and security functionality, and Apple is likely to push AR strongly when it unveils the iPhone X tomorrow.

There's also wireless charging-the kind of feature that companies have been trying to make happen for years and years, and that is already out there in some Android phones.

Apple announced a developer kit for the technology earlier this year called ARKit and said this technology has been built into the hardware and software of the new devices.

Other spec upgrades are also anticipated, with a powerful dual-camera, 512GB of native storage, and a significantly upgraded 3,000 mAh battery among the highlights.
