Samsung had 23% of the smartphone market in the first quarter versus 16% for Apple, according to data from IDC. Earlier this year, Samsung released the Galaxy S9 phone with an upgraded camera, which has been well received by consumers.

The Note phone line helped usher in the large-phone format, a growing category that appeals to single-device consumers. Apple, which for years resisted making a large-screen iPhone, changed course in 2014 with the iPhone 6 Plus. Later this year, Apple plans to launch its biggest smartphone yet, a model with an almost 6.5-inch screen that looks like a bigger iPhone X.

Samsung is also working on a smart speaker coupled with its digital assistant Bixby, taking on Amazon.com Inc.'s Echo line of devices and Apple's HomePod, Bloomberg News reported last year. ALSO READ: Samsung Galaxy Note 8 review: A truly premium experience
