The Next Round Of Smartphone Rumors Commences

With the holiday shopping season less than a month away, the rumor mills are churning again. Recent rumors indicate Samsung may release the Galaxy 8 in the first half of 2017. After the problems with the Galaxy Note 7, Samsung needs something positive to put them back in the spotlight. This rumor is getting a lot of traction. Ironically, Apple handset rumors are also gaining momentum. Supposedly, the upcoming iPhone 8 will take a cue from Samsung with a curved display. If Apple continues to follow thier past release scheduled, the iPhone 7S would be released in 2017, and iPhone 8 in 2018. However, some analysts think Apple may deviate from this path. This could make 2017 a very interesting year for smartphones. Undoubtedly, more rumors will surface in the coming months.
