Facebook Launches Music Videos to Eat into YouTube’s Market

With the launch of Music Videos, Facebook has made another competitive move against its biggest opponent, Google.

As the earlier speculations revealed that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is gearing up to launch 3 new iPhones this year, the fresh round of these speculations have a lot more of a fuel to attract the masses’ attention.

Seasoned technology journalist Gordon Kelly reveals that Apple may plant three rear cameras in the upcoming iPhone X Plus or the most premium variant of its 2018 iPhones. It would help the iPhone maker to enhance the camera performance and earmark its influence on the smartphone photographers’ segment.

Kim Dong-won, an analyst working with the investment firm KB Securities also speculates that the iPhone X Plus 2018 and the Samsung Galaxy S10, both may sport the triple camera setup.


These recent renders of the 6.5 inch iPhone X plus 2018 released by Ghostek, a smartphone case maker also suggest the same.

Apart from the triple lens setup, the iPhone X Plus is also said to sport a 6.5 inch OLED display along with an upgraded version of Face ID technology. The leaks also suggest a smaller notch on the device as compared to its predecessor. It may also be Apple’s costliest iPhone implying that the device may breach the $1000 mark.

In Q1 2018, Apple sold 52.2 million units of iPhones, that’s a marginal increase from the same period last year. Interestingly, despite the huge criticism for Face ID, notch, and price, iPhone X emerged as the world’s most-selling smartphone model in last quarter. About 16 million units of iPhone X were sold, though it failed to meet the Wall Street expectations.

Apart from the cost factor, there are other issues with the device that may have influenced the drop in the sales of iPhone X.

One of them has to be the Camera. The iPhone X came with a dual rear camera setup, which did impress the users in daylight photography but struggled in low light conditions. The device has a DxOMark Score of 97. Its nearest competitors Google Pixel 2 received a score of 98, while the Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus has a score of 99 on the same scale. However, the chart is topped by Huawei’s latest offering in the flagship segment  – P20 Pro – which is the world’s first Leica Triple Camera Smartphone. It has a DXoMark score of 109.


Huawei has raised the bar with the low-light image processing with its P20 Pro by carefully choosing the correct set of lens modules. It has a 40 Mp with f/1.8 lens RGB sensor as the main camera, a 20 Mp f/1.6 lens monochrome sensor and an 8 Mp f/2.4 lens as the telephoto shooter.

Apple is rumoured to follow the suit by implementing a similar combination on its iPhone X Plus.

The Cupertino giant is also said to be investing heavily in the development of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Augmented Reality (AR) to aid its smartphone camera performance.

Apart from this, Apple is also planning to release a lower-cost 6.1″ LCD iPhone in 2018, with an aim to capture the entry-level market. We can also expect some premium accessories such as 18W USB-C fast charger, a Lightning cable, etc., bundled with the upcoming 2018 iPhone models.

All this suggests that the Cupertino based smartphone manufacturer is looking forward to uplift its sales graph with the help of the upcoming smartphones.
