Apple, apparently, won, thanks to the Galaxy Note 7 Samsung. And now, when Samsung decided to stop creating smartphones Galaxy Note 7 in General, Apple can go even higher.
Apple shares rose nearly 2% in early trading on Tuesday after the obituary announcement from Samsung about the Galaxy Note 7. Apple shares rose almost 10% compared to Samsung, which announced its first opinion of the phone in early September.
Apple has not released sales figures for the iPhone 7. This surprised many experts, technologies and investors, because Apple usually announces how many devices were sold in the first weekend after the new iPhone went on sale.
The company said before the launch of the iPhone 7 that he will not release early sales figures, because he had already sold his existing stock. As a result, Apple said that there was no reason to change profit and sales that he made in the current quarter in July.
Analysts think Apple sold 45 million iPhones overall in the quarter. This is compared to 48 million in the same period a year ago. But some analysts raised their forecasts over the past few weeks, partly because of troubles Samsung.
Some argue that other companies are producing Android-based smartphones, such as Huawei, Sony (SNE), LG and Xiaomi could get more profit from sales. Frustrated Galaxy Note users 7 can simply choose another Android instead of switching to the iPhone.
There are also reports that Samsung is ready to introduce a new phone, the Galaxy S8, the exhibition Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. Thus, some customers Samsung could just wait for this phone, provided that the reputation of Samsung will not be irreparably damaged. If the Galaxy S8 will be a hit all will be forgiven.
