However, despite the time to make sure the model is the highest standard it can be, Apple's iPhone's remain behind the Galaxy range in terms of screen brightness. There are still plenty of hurdles up ahead for the company to overcome, the failure of which will push the release to the following year.
Samsung had launched the Note 8 on Aug 23 and is slated to reach showrooms in the US and UK on September 15. Below are two excerpts from a brief interview with the Korean press with Samsung's mobile division chief Koh Dong-jin.
The Note 8 has been the most expensive smartphone Samsung has released.
The iPhone X is equipped with a 5.8-inch high-end organic light-emitting diode screen, unlike the LCD screens Apple used in earlier iPhones. "We have confirmed unchanged love and support for the Note series".
Apple CEO Tim Cook unveiled the phone on Tuesday at the Steve Jobs Theatre, a 1,000-seat venue at the company's Cupertino, Calif. headquarters.
Koh did not elaborate what the problems are. The Samsung is acquired the Stamford, Connection based Samsung company in last year. "We want it to be mass-ready and at a technological level where people will say it is a well-made phone", the report quoted DJ Koh as saying.
But the latest model in the series, the Note 8, appears to have shaken off the concerns that dogged its predecessor.
It's likely that Bixby will power the upcoming smart speaker, which is codenamed 'Vega' (according to the rumours) and will likely enable users to control connected devices around the home, such as lights, TVs and thermostats, using voice control.
