Google will launch its brand new phone Pixel 2 within a few weeks

It is a big day for Tim Cook and Apple today. The most expensive iPhone you`ve ever bought will be launched and that is happening ten years after its first release of their iPhone. That was then in 2007, but now it is 2017 and iPhone 8.

But Apple wont be long in heaven before I introduce another new phone on the market. Googles new release of their new phone called Google Pixel 2. Google Pixel and Pixel XL were both launched in October last year, so Pixel 2 will be launched next month, October 2017.

 

 

It isnt the most innovative product I have seen so far, but what I have seen is only leaked cases. The Pixel line is new and its building on the new defunct Nexus range. Apples new phone will be expensive, but you shouldnt expect Pixel 2 to be any cheaper than the old one.

The old one from Google started at about $650, so it was already expensive.

Rumors tells us that the new Google phone will be a curved screen with a 5,6 inch 18:9 display and a 2,560 x 1,312 resolution. With its use of AMOLED it will be very similar to Samsung Galaxy S8. Further more, it is rumored it will be a Snapdragon 835 chipset for all three Pixel 2 handsets.

The competition in the phone market increase and search giant not only face big competition from Apple but also from Xiaomi and Huawei. The last one remains Chinas top smart phone brand and Xiaomis sales are still climbing.

Xiaomi shipped 15 million phones during the quarter to rank fourth in China. That`s a 60% rise from Q1 2017. Huawei shipped 23 million ahead of brother-sister companies Oppo (21 million) and Vivo (16 million). Apple completed the top 5, having been leapfrogged by Xiaomi.

Xiaomi is the opposite of Apple with its price-conscious consumers. CEO Lei Jun hailed Xiaomi`s resurgence this year, calling it this most recent quarter «a major inflection point in our growth.»

«After two years of internal recalibration Xiaomi is once again embarking on a rapid growth trajectory,» Lei Jun told the press. He added that the company is aiming to reach 100 million phone sales in 2018.

Competition from Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi and Huawei are placing them all in the price-conscious to mid-range devices category. They are more likely to succeed in Asia than Google and Apple in the West.

Apple will launch its new iPhone on September 12 and it will be the most expensive phone you`ve ever bought

Apple is planning to launch its new iPhone 8 on September 12. It will be a big day for Apple but also for Apple fans around the world. The new phone will be the most expensive phone you`ve ever bought and the price will exceed all of its competitors.

You are also hereby warned about the wow effect you`ll get with a big visual overhaul of the new iPhone. The new iPhone will be coming in a new Blush Gold color and leaks have been hinting that the new phone will outperform the elegant designed Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

 

 

The name of the new phone is not known yet, but Apple may call it something like iPhone Pro or iPhone X to mark the 10th anniversary. You will be able to see the new 10th anniversary iPhone for the first time ever at the Steve Jobs Theater venue.

It`s amazing to see how the technology giant are doing it. Shares peaked at an all-time high followed by a strong earnings report the last month. Shares of the giant jumped over 10% in August and that is based on a strong fiscal third-quarter 2017 results.

Earnings per share rose 17,6% to $1,67, and their gross margin expanded 50 basis points to 38,5%. Apple`s revenue rose 7% YoY to quarterly revenue of $45,4 Billion. How is it possible?

Belive it or not, but it seems like people haven`t got enough of the giant and their revenue rose in all segments.

Iphone sales jumped 3% YoY to $24,8 Billion. iPad revenue increased by 2% to nearly $5 Billion. Services revenue rose 22% to $7,2 Billion and sales of other products like Apple TV, Watch, Beats and accessories rose 23% to $2,7 Billion. Cook also reported accelerating growth an all-time high quarterly record for Services revenue. Amazing.

Not only that. Apple provided guidance for fiscal fourth-quarter revenue to increase in the range between $49 Billion and $52 Billion. Apple is very excited about the advances in iOS, watchOS and tvOS coming this fall.

Apple`s most popular product line is still iPhone and their widely expected iPhone 8 smart phone will be launched on September 12, 2017.

During the last call, CEO Tim Cook said: “We`re looking very much forward to the product rollouts”.

Apple have a cash hoard of $250 billion and enough software know-how to build great self-driving car technology

Apple is a big company with a market cap of $783,07 billion, and most of its success is coming from its flagship iPhone. CEO Tim Cook in May noted a «pause» in iPhone sales but Apple is expected to come out with a new and expensive iPhone in a few months.

It will be a super premium tenth-anniversary iPhone costing $1,000 or more, but that will not help the sales of their iPhone at the moment. In addition, the pause could also be delayed. Maybe into a new fiscal year.

 

 

What is an electric car actually? It is a smart phone with four wheels, because there aren`t much difference from an electric car and a smart phone. And who can enter the auto industry better than Apple?

Apple have everything they need to design a brand new electric car. They have more than enough much-needed software know-how and the company is already working with car companies on CarPlay. They have $150 billion of net cash and $50 billion of free cash flows annually.

Apple compete with Google and Microsoft and it will be very disruptive when they all enters the car industry with its brand new electric cars.

Whats funny to see is that these companies are not car companies but rather software companies. It speaks for itself. Apple is a strong brand with many fans worldwide, and Apple Car can take a large share in the auto market.

Tim Cook said in June this year that Apple has autonomous car ambitions. Apple is working to build self-driving car technology, referring to the endeavor as “the mother of all AI projects”.

But it seems like Google are leading. In December, Google launched Waymo, wich is “a new way forward in mobility.” So far, they have more than 2 million miles of public-roadway testing for its vehicles.

What will happen if Apple buy Tesla? They could quickly become a leader, but Elon Musk laughs off the idea of Apple buying Tesla. But earlier this year, Musk said “Never say never to Apple buying Tesla”.

Apple have a cash hoard of more than $250 billion, and that is giving them the opportunity to spend some of it for acquisitions or buybacks.

We know that Elon Musk earlier this year had a meeting with acquisitions chief at Apple and news regarding this case would be a bomb in the stock market.

Apple Inc is expected to report earnings on Tuesday August 01 after market close. Earnings forecast for the quarter is $1,57 versus $1,42 for the same quarter last year.

Apple event on Wednesday

Apple Inc has launched two important new products this year which is Apple Music and Apple Watch. But who is talking about it and how is the business right now? Readers of Shinybull know what I mean about those two products.

I have earlier said that an Apple Watch is a nice thing to have but a phone like iPhone is a «Must have».

The body design of the new iPhone will be similar to the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. We will probably see a new feature called Force Touch, which first debuted with the Apple Watch. Iphone is a very important product for Apple Inc.

The company cannot expect to be a growth company based on others products and ideas. I have said earlier that Apple Music must make a different platform than Spotify if they want to compete with them. Why should people run from Spotify to Apple Music?

Spotify succeeded because they had a great idea, and the idea was streaming at one price a month. The market wanted it much more than buying songs for about 1 dollar at iTunes.

Some investors sold shares at Fitbit Inc because of the Apple Watch, but Fitbit shears is up 11,98 percent to US $ 35,65 right now in New York. Fitbit Inc went public in June 17 at US $20 a share. Morgan Stanley has a price target of $58 a share.

Despite competition from Apple, Fitbit maintained 21 percent of the wearable market in July. The number of Fitbit users who planned to buy Apple`s watch fell from May to July, according to Morgan Stanley.

Apple is expected to show off a new Apple TV system. CEO Tim Cook talked about Apple TV`s lower price during an event in March earlier this year. Analysts say the new Apple TV could serve as a hub for Siri to control lamps, thermostats and other «smart» appliances, using Apple`s HomeKit technology.

Apple has tried to convince media companies for years to strike deals for the Apple TV to carry live programming outside traditional cable and satellite packages. Now, the company has opened up its TV set-top box to outside apps, and a quality app is vital to win in this market.

The new TV box is part of the company’s strategy to carve out a bigger role in the home. It is expected to see a redesigned Apple TV set-top box with new capabilities for apps and games, and Siri is expected to become «smarter».

Siri can offer recommendations, such as nearby restaurants. She will also offer to add calendar and contact entries based on your incoming email. She can launch apps for you based on your past habits.

Hey, Siri, when is the new event starting?

Apple Inc is hosting its annual splash on Wednesday to talk more about its new iPhone. The event starts at San Francisco`s Bill Graham Civic Auditorium at 10 a.m on Wednesday September. 9.

Apple’s Tim Cook leads different

Spend your Easter holiday to read about the World`s greatest leader here at shinybull.com. It is a long story, so take your time. This story is from the April 1, 2015 issue of Fortune. Enjoy!

Fortune

Tim Cook assumed he was ready forthe harsh glare that shines on Apple’s [fortune-stock symbol=”AAPL”] CEO. He had, after all, filled in for Jobs three times during the Apple founder’s medical leaves of absence. Cook ultimately became the company’s chief executive six weeks before Jobs died, in October 2011.

What Cook found out instead is that there is no preparation for the scrutiny that comes with succeeding a legend. “I have thick skin,” he says, “but it got thicker. What I learned after Steve passed away, what I had known only at a theoretical level, an academic level maybe, was that he was an incredible heat shield for us, his executive team. None of us probably appreciated that enough because it’s not something we were fixated on. We were fixated on our products and running the business. But he really took any kind of spears that were thrown. He…
