Pink may not be the manliest color out there, but Samsung never said that the Galaxy S8+ was only meant for men either! Samsung is about to release a Pink Rose colored variant of the Galaxy S8+ in Taiwan and in spite of my personal prejudice against pink colored phones, one has to admit that it does look beautiful. According to reports, it will be a limited edition handset that will only be available exclusively via Samsung's own online store and nowhere else. Once the stocks run out, allegedly, Samsung won't be making any more of these.


This will be the Exynos 8895 version and all other specifications will be the same, as expected. The price of the pink smartphone will be roughly $920 or TW 27,900; which is the same as the price of any other color variants of the S8+ in the country. On an interesting side note, the Coral Blue, orchid Grey and Maple Gold colors have been renamed as Ice Lake Blue, Smoked Purple Grey and Quicksand Gold in Taiwan for some reason. If you like the color and you are not in Taiwan, we are sorry to report that there has been no news regarding whether or not the Rose Pink color will make it to any other nation.

According to the latest leak by VentureBeat, the Galaxy Note 8 will be costlier than any phone ever released by Samsung yet. While it is to be expected as I have never really seen any of their flagships launched with a lower price tag than that of its predecessor, Samsung is taking it beyond the $1,000 mark this time. To be precise, the Note 8 will start at an astoundingly expensive price tag of $1,120 or €999. This is of course, presuming that the leak has any merit to it.


The price itself will not matter much to the US users as they often get brilliant discounts, bogo offers and excellent monthly contract options. The international markets like India however, will feel the pinch as the prices are always higher and such discounts and offers are unheard of.


In case you don't know yet, rumors are predicting that you will be paying that price tag of $1,120 or higher (depending on where you are located) for a 6.3-inch QHD+ Super AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 835/Exynos 8895, 6GB of RAM, rear mounted dual cameras, the S-Pen, Nougat 7.1.1 and a weirdly placed rear mounted fingerprint sensor.

During what was a very short-lived relationship between the two companies, Samsung had been the sole supplier of the Qualcomm 835 chips which were being made on Samsung's 10nm FinFET process. While the latest and greatest Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC may be the product of the partnership in-between Samsung and Qualcomm, all that is over now. Qualcomm has decided to ditch Samsung and move forward with TSMC and their 7nm process for 2018. However, a latest report from Weibo is stating that Samsung too might ditch the semiconductor manufacturer's Snapdragon series of chips in 2018.


Due to incompatibility with the CDMA networks in the US and in certain other parts of the world, Samsung usually reserves its Exynos chips for the international version, while the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon chips are usually what the US variants get every year. The report from Weibo suggests that Samsung will remove that dependency with their Exynos 9810 SoC, which will come with CDMA network support. Reportedly, this is also the chip which will be powering the Galaxy S9 next year. It looks like the Samsung-Qualcomm partnership is truly about to come to an end for the most part.

While Samsung is the global leader when it comes to smartphone sales, Apple usually beats the Korean giant by a yard stick and then some when it comes to operating profit in the sector. However, that's only the smartphone sector that we are talking about and as everyone who is even mildly interested about the company will tell you, Samsung is MUCH bigger than just smartphones. The latest predictions by analysts are suggesting that Samsung will possibly beat all other companies in the whole world in any sector in terms of operating profit in Q2 2017!


What this means is that Samsung will be breaking all personal and world records when it comes to profit in a single quarter at the end of June. The likes of Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google will fall behind to make way for the mighty Korean giant. If you are interested in numbers, then consider that the estimates range between $11.6 billion - $12.3 billion in operating profits for Samsung. We will find out how accurate these results are once the financials are made official in the next few weeks.

If the latest report by Naver from South Korea has any truth to it, then we are probably going to be looking at the Galaxy Note 8 earlier than we thought we would. As per the report, Samsung is not going to wait till the IFA in September, but is going to announce the next Note at a Samsung exclusive event in New York City on the 26th of August.

 

Given that the Galaxy Note 7 was launched on August 2 last year, the August 26 date is still almost a month after the one year mark and that's exactly why this report may very well turn out to be true. Whether or not this change in schedule was brought on to get an edge over the iPhone 8 is unclear at this point of time. Truth be told, I am highly doubtful than an earlier than iPhone release will really affect the Note 8's sale by much. The reason I say this is because people who buy iPhones are usually the ones who buy well... iPhones! Samsung on the other hand, might also be eager to bring its first Note device to the market ever since the Note 7 disaster.
