Samsung, LG to release high-end smartphones
[THE INVESTOR] The latest flagship smartphones of top two Korean tech giants -- Galaxy Note 8 and V30 -- are expected to officially kick off in the country on Sept. 21, industry sources said on Aug. 30.
Although consumers who preorder Samsung Electronics‘ Galaxy Note 8 can get their smartphones Sept. 15, it still marks the first time for the two giants to officially release a flagship model on the same day.
Preorders for Samsung’s new phablet start Sept. 7.
Samsung showcased the 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 8 with a dual camera and improved stylus features last week.
LG Electronics plan to introduce its new flagship Aug. 31. The 6-inch LG V30 will come with a screen ratio of 18:9 with an OLED display. It will become the first V smartphone to use an OLED display.
Industry watchers said LG’s strategy to release the product along with the Galaxy Note 8 apparently reflects the company’s confidence over the new product.
