Xiaomi was one of the artists of the ACE in the quarter, not only taking the number 2 in the smartphone market in India, but also contributing to the recovery of Rs. 4000-R. 6,000 price segments that grew 55% sequentially.

Apple Likely to See Few Takers for $1,000 iPhone 8; Samsung May Capture Premium Market: Barclays

Apple Likely to See Few Takers for $1,000 iPhone 8; Samsung May Capture Premium Market: Barclays


Samsung’s return to Galaxy Note 8 phablet was unveiled on Wednesday. Although the smartphone seeks to restore consumer confidence after the fiery disappearance of Galaxy Note 7, it is still not cheap.

The Galaxy Note 8 costs around US $ 930, but Mark Mark Moskowitz, Barclays says that Samsung is better positioned to capture the market share of premium smartphones with the smartphone than the Apple iPhone comes.

Barclays analysts have found that less than a potential buyer about 5 or 18 percent will opt for an iPhone that costs more than $ 1000, Google reports 9-5. Given past reports that the iPhone ahead of the tenth anniversary will cost around $ 1000, it can prove to be a tough fight to win by Apple.

“While the device [Galaxy Note 8] looks more evolutionary than revolutionary, we believe this release represents the return of the farm competition in the premium segment ($ 700 + ASP) of the smartphone market next note 7 Samsung Note last year .

For Apple, we are concerned that the company must meet the high expectations of investors after the planned launch of three new iPhones in September.

This could be more difficult considering that only 18% of iPhone buyers are willing to spend $ 1000 + for a new device, which is less than the figure of 30 to 35% since investors seem to expect, “says Barclays Report.

Samsung, on the other hand, should not see a slowdown in seeing how their Galaxy S8 smartphones have been replaced in the last quarter. Barclays believes that the collapse of the Galaxy Note 7 did not damage the company’s reputation and is unlikely to affect sales of Galaxy Note 8. And if Apple does not cost 8 $ 1,000 north of the iPhone, Samsung could simply own the premium market.

Apple is not only threatened by Samsung but will also care for players like Huawei, Oppo and Vivo as consumers are moving towards the mid-market as these companies are starting to offer near-top-end specs. One price affordable.

“This is even more important because of our view that smartphones will continue to” intrude “into the mid-range segment, where Huawei, Oppo and Vivo’s competition continues to intensify.”

Analysts’ rating sees Apple growing in the short term, but is not sure of the future. “Beyond the short-term term, we are concerned that Apple could lose a meaningful story” about what “keeps revenue growth.

As a result, we remain marginal. “We’ll have to wait to see how Apple plans its pricing strategy for its next iPhone to compete with Samsung’s latest offer.

Gunman ‘confused’: Islamic council
The advanced Muslim body state wondered if the Brighton attack was a terrorist incident.

The Islamic Council of Victoria said today that if the police consider it to be a potential terrorist attack, the author himself seemed confused as to who was in favor of loyalty. ISIS and al Qaeda are known enemies. ”

“Although there is a debate over this person’s reasons for this senseless and evil crime, it is clear that (Yacqub) Khayre had a long criminal record, had been in prison for violent crimes and was actually parole At the time of the incident, “a statement from the Council said.

The council said that “what has to be avoided is a sensationnalisation or unjustified assignment of these criminals, as this aggravates the fears and tensions that prevail and potentially promotes the behavior of copiers.”
Brighton’s armed seat, Yacqub Khayre, claims allegiance to ISIS and al Qaeda.
“Whether this act was inspired by a distorted ideology or evil is, in fact, the action of a violated disturbed individual, that does not change the fact that a horrible crime was committed where an innocent person died, a woman Was abducted and the lives of police officers were threatened, “the statement said.

The ICV said it also wanted to express support for the Somali community “being unfairly accused because of this man’s actions.”

“They have made and continue to make a valuable contribution to Victorian society,” he said.
