The introduction of the Galaxy A8 may serve to heighten excitement over Samsung, as Apple is also poised to launch its iPhone 6S in October. A launch before the iPhone hits the market may add hype to the Samsung models, which, the company will do well to sustain. Recent news have been indicative of plummeting sales for Samsung.
