September 12: A Bad Day for Samsung?

Will Samsung Struggle at the Birth of the New Apple iPhone?

Autumn is around the corner, and everything seems to be falling. Well, except Apple.

While the rumored announcement of the iPhone 5 hangs over our heads, the fall season will be a lot colder for other smartphone makers, most especially Samsung. Nokia and Motorola – the has-beens of the mobile phone manufacturing industry- dashed to the board and released their latest models to write off the tarrying effect of the iPhone mania among tech consumers. They released Lumia 920 and Droid Razr Maxx HD respectively, in a dire attempt to veer away the attention of the iPhone fanatics to the newest Apple smartphone.

In fairness to these tech firms, the smartphones they released were all note-worthy, sporting enhancements worthy of our buy-ins. Unfortunately, several tech analysts say that that these phones will be inadequate in dimming the exclusive limelight shining on the upcoming iPhone 5.

Let’s take a look at what’s currently happening on the technological landscape: Regardless of the whiff of the iPhone 5, Nokia Lumia 920 is a very important phone in Nokia’s product development catalogs. It’s the first Nokia handheld device to run Windows Phone 8. From the looks of it, the Microsoft-Nokia alliance has just started, and with the fusion of these two capable tech giants, we can expect a lot more surprises.

The Lumia 920 is definitely the flagship of Nokia smartphones today. Its camera lens aid for shaky hands and poor photo-capturing abilities, results in sharper and crisper images in low light and video capture. It can also be charged without being plugged in; the owner only needs to place it on a wireless charging pod.

According to Nokia CEO Stephen Elop, the new phones will be out in ‘selected’ markets in the 4th quarter. For now, we don’t know how much it would cost and which U.S. carriers would have them, but it is safe to assume that two of them will be AT&T Inc. and T-Mobile USA as they have been network service providers of previous Lumia phones.

Additional information from Sunstar.com:

“Nokia launched its first Windows phones late last year under the Lumia brand, as the first fruits of Elop’s alliance with Microsoft. Those ran Windows Phone 7 software, which is effectively being orphaned in the new version. The older phones can’t be upgraded, and they won’t be able to run all applications written for Windows Phone 8.”

“Nokia sold 4 million Lumia phones in the second quarter, far fewer than the 26 million iPhones that Apple Inc. sold during those three months. So far, the line hasn’t helped Nokia halt its sales decline: Its global market share shrunk from the peak of 40 percent in 2008 to 29 percent in 2011, and it is expected to dwindle further this year.”

Meanwhile, the iPhone 5 is nearing its birth. Can it beat the incredible power of the smartphones today?
