“Prominent Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI is out this weekend with a new investor note, but this one focuses almost entirely on Samsung and its upcoming Galaxy S8 refresh,” Chance Miller reports for 9to5Mac. “Nevertheless, there are a couple of tidbits about Apple inside the report.”
“Kuo believes that Samsung will see weaker demand for its Galaxy S8 this than it did for the Galaxy S7 last year,” Miller reports. “One reason for this is that last year, Samsung essentially released a single flagship device because of the Note 7 debacle. Another reason for slowed demand, however, is that Samsung will face increased competition this year from Apple.”
