In addition, new data released today by Canalys reveals that the Apple iPhone 7 was the most popular smartphone model in the world during the third quarter with 13 million units shipped. Margins on the 256GB model could also be similar, despite the recent uptick in NAND prices, as Apple has priced the device at a $150 premium versus the base model, instead of its typical $100 increment. "Apple is clearly making a portfolio play here", he said in a statement accompanying the report.

"With the launch of the iPhone X, [Apple] now has five tiers of iPhone and delivers iOS at more price bands than ever before", wrote Canalys.

Pete Lau, the company's CEO, tweeted about the new phone and the tweet hints about the higher price of OnePlus 5T . After a leak-filled pre-launch of the OnePlus 5 , the company has changed its approach with the OnePlus 5T .

Apple rolled the dice and released two new versions of the iPhone this year, and so far, that strategy isn't paying off, as the iPhone 8 looks to be a rare misstep by the world's most valuable company. At a little over two years old now since its launch back in 2015, the iPhone 6s has proven to remain very popular, with 7.9 million units sold.

Meanwhile, the figures also suggest that people are increasingly gravitating towards larger handsets these days. That said, the pricier Plus model shipped in higher numbers – 6.3 million vs. 5.4 million. The 8 Plus is the first iPhone Plus model to out-ship its smaller sibling in a single quarter, says the research firm. Samsung's Galaxy J2 Prime was third, with 7.8 million shipped, while Oppo took fourth and fifth place, with its A57 and R11 shipping 7.8 million and 7.2 million units respectively. This implies that component costs as a percentage of the device's retail price would stand at 37%, compared to about 35% for the iPhone 7 and 36% for the iPhone 8 Plus.

Asked if he was satisfied that all players who had pulled out were genuinely injured, Southgate replied: "Yeah, absolutely". I want to play every game. "Whoever we come up against, we can go into the game knowing that we trained for it".

Samsung shipped 82.8 million smartphones in Q3, 8.2% more than in Q3 2016. Worldwide smartphone shipments reached 375.9 million, up 5.9% year on year as per the Canalys Q3 2017 report. The growth in Samsung' shipments is because of the J-series of smartphones, which did extremely well in India and the Middle East. The Galaxy S8 series saw 10.3 million devices being shipped in the quarter, and Canalys notes the discounted pricing helped boost this.

Stanton notes that Samsung has lost its edge in displays now that Apple, Google, Huawei and others have new phones with 18:9 displays and thin bezels. But Samsung's golden period of having a differentiated product has now ended.
