Analyst: iPhone 8 to be priced relative to Galaxy S8+

Two months ago, Fast Company reported that iPhone 8 would start at above $1,000 due to costlier components and advanced technologies, such as wireless charging, VR capabilities, revamped industrial design, a curved AMOLED screen and more. UBS analyst Steven Milunovich begs to differ, telling CNBC that the device will come in for less than $1,000 as new models are expected to see a “bulge of buying”.

Apple just doubled iPhone SE storage without raising prices

As part of announcing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition in a new vibrant red aluminum finish, Apple this morning said that iPhone SE, its most affordable handset ever, is now available with double the storage at the same starting price of $399 in the United States.

The new 32 and 128-gigabyte capacities have replaced the previous 16GB and 64GB models of iPhone SE which are no longer sold. The new 32/128 GB iPhone SE models will be available beginning Friday, March 24 from apple.com and Apple Stores.

Galaxy S8 may capture slow motion video at 1,000 FPS & cost less than iPhone 8

According to prolific smartphone leakster Evan Blass, Samsung’s regular Galaxy S8 and the rumored Galaxy S8 Plus models will occupy prices between Apple’s iterative iPhone 7s and a new premium iPhone 8 model that will likely cost more than $1,000 unlocked. Blass also shared genuine-looking press renderings of the next Galaxy smartphone.

Meanwhile, SamMobile is reporting that Galaxy S8’s slow motion video capture mode could blow iPhone 7 out of the water with the ability to capture a thousand frames per second. Apple’s camera partner Sony recently announced a new 19-megapixel CMOS sensor (IMX400), built it into the new Xperia XZ Premium, that can capture slo-mo video at 960 frames per second.

Evernote just raised its prices

I stopped using Evernote more than a year ago because Apple’s much-improved Notes fulfills all of my note-taking needs. That said, I understand that some folks still prefer Evernote because it’s cross-platform and has advanced features like geotagging and uploading lots of data.

In announcing the price hike on its paid subscription plans, Evernote said the move would permit its developers to add even more features for power users.

Furthermore, customers who are on Evernote’s Basic plan will no longer be permitted to use the service on more than two devices at the same time.
