On the day before the Galaxy Note 8 is released in Korea, it has been predicted that the iPhone X will not be released here until December.
This will give Samsung's flagship phone potentially around three months to pick up customers before the iPhone X hits the market.
The iPhone X will be released in other parts of the world on Nov. 3 but Apple usually releases their products around a month later in Korea.
Both phones were announced to huge fanfare, with their giant edge to edge displays being the main talking point.
However, both phones are also making headlines for their huge prices.
The Galaxy Note 8 is being sold for an absolutely massive 1,204,000 won. There is currently no price for the iPhone X but it is expected to sell in the U.S. for slightly more than the Note 8.
This high price doesn't seem to have put off consumers. In fact, Samsung have announced that there have been more pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 8 than any other Note series smartphone. The total number was 650,000 pre-orders worldwide.
While there were initial worries that the Note brand would have been damaged due to the fire incident from last year, it seems that this has not been the case.
Despite the late release of the iPhone X, Apple fans won't have to wait for too long to get their hands on a new product. The iPhone 8 is expected to be released in Korea around October/November.
