Then, the Galaxy Note 8 screen works amazingly outdoors and has 1200 nits of brightness compared to the iPhone X at 625 nits. This was disclosed by the president of Samsung Mobile, DJ Koh, at a media event for the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 8 in South Korea. So how does Samsung's flagship stack up to Apple's latest handsets?

"We still need a period of time to see whether Note 8 could restore Chinese consumers' trust and give a boost to the South Korean tech giant's overall China sales", said Hattie He, a smartphone analyst at Canalys. This device is also the best-selling Galaxy Note in the Note lineup so far, out-pre-selling all previous models. This is where the Note 8 wins as it boasts 6GB of RAM, a figure that is twice that of the iPhone X. The extra RAM on the Note 8 will be useful, especially on the productivity front.

While the Apple iPhone X has an edge-to-edge display it is only 5.8 inches, the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus comes with a much larger 6.2 inch display infinity display. Samsung sports the octa core 1.6 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor.

The Galaxy Note 8 screen is bigger, better, brighter and doesn't have a gap at the top of the screen that gets in the way. This latest software update will provide better security to the devices, which are among the best now available. On September 12th iPhone X was released and on October 16th Huawei Mate 10 is expected to release. The price of the new iPhone X goes upto $999, and in India, the ultra premium phone's price has reached over Rs 1 lakh. And now this leak adds more fuel to the fact; that the update is now in testing phase and may soon be released for beta program by Samsung.
