Samsung Galaxy S8 Specs Details: Leak Suggests Gold Color Option

Samsung Galaxy S8 Specs Details: Leak Suggests Gold Color Option

IPhone 6s was the top-selling smartphone in the world a year ago, beating its competitors like the Samsung (SSNLF) Galaxy S7, according to research from IHS Markit (INFO) .

We're No. 1! We're No. 1!.and 2, 3, and 4.

. It was followed by iPhone 7 Plus. For both generations, the smaller 4.7-inch versions sold better than the larger 5.5-inch Plus models.

"Apple again has demonstrated that its new iPhones integrate enough innovations and new features to drive sales and remain successful in the market", IHS said in a press release. IHS Markit says the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus became Apple's top sellers during the holiday period, landing them at number two and three on the research firm's list, respectively.

Just when we thought we've got it all figured out, a new report emerges that contradicts some of the things we know so far about the Galaxy S8.

After months of rumors, the Samsung Galaxy S8 will finally go official in a few days. Samsung, however, owned five places in the top 10 spots for the most shipped smartphones. With Apple set to introduce an iPhone with an edgeless OLED display later this year, some analysts believe that Samsung will experience an overall decline in smartphone shipment volume.

In less than a week, the Galaxy S8 will be unveiled and soon after that Samsung will start taking preorders for its first flagship phones of the year. Huawei continued as the third largest manufacturer even though it didn't have any models in the 2016 top ten, preferring to address multiple smartphone pricing segments with its Huawei or Honor-branded handsets.
