It looks like we can expect plenty of competition in the high-end smartphone market later this year as it is being reported that Samsung is planning to get the Galaxy Note 8 out in August, in an attempt to launch before the next iPhone. Beyond that, LG, is also said to be planning a new smartphone for Q3, known currently as the LG V30.
According to a report from the Korean Herald, all of these upcoming smartphones (iPhone, Galaxy Note 8 and LG V30) will have significantly reduced bezels on their displays. Dual camera designs will also be adopted across the board, which is a trend that has been catching on since the launch of the iPhone 6 Plus.

According to recent leaks, we have seen that the Galaxy Note 8 may use the Galaxy S8’s ‘infinity display’, which has very little bezel showing. The Galaxy Note 8 is currently expected to launch in August, prior to Apple’s September iPhone launch, which is a tactic Samsung has used in the past.
Meanwhile, there have been plenty of ‘leaks’ and rumours in regards to Apple’s next iPhone, which is largely expected to feature a near bezel free display. Finally, LG’s V30 is apparently projected to make use of the ‘Full Vision’ display found on the LG G6.
KitGuru Says: It sounds like there is going to be a lot going on in the smartphone world between August and September. Not to mention the fact that we will likely see a new Google Pixel before the end of the year.
