Apple has an unofficial tradition of releasing its new phones every September.

By Otto Mergen

It is highly expected that Apple will make an announcement in a couple of days. September 12th is mostly rumored day, though there has not been any official confirmation. We don’t even know what the new phone will be named. iPhone 8? Or to celebrate iPhone’s 10th anniversary may be something special.  However, regardless the name, Apple always sets new bars for market players to achieve and in that respect, everyone expects new exciting features from the company. Since we do not have any information about the phone’s specs, to make a prelude for our future comparison, we decided to make a comparison between latest versions of two rival phones: iPhone 7 and Samsung Galaxy S8.

In terms of dimension, Galaxy S8 is slightly larger and thicker than iPhone 7. It is also heavier. Its display is considerably larger and has better resolution as well. Unlike classic iPhone display design, S8 features infinity screen, a screen that occupies almost the entire face of the phone. There are rumors that the next iPhone will feature infinity display as well. Both phones are waterproof, though S8 has better waterproof certification.

S8 and iPhone 7 are quite comparable in terms of performance, though Apple’s A10 chip relies on older technology. In a new iPhone Apple may utilize chips that rely on 10 nm manufacturing process. In terms of photography, two phones are not so different from each. Both feature excellent features, though again Samsung has better, 8MP, front camera with wider aperture.  

Apple offers three different storage capacities, while S8 comes with 64GB internal storage but offers expandable storage. For the above-mentioned features both phones are power hungry. However, iPhone 7 has less powerful battery than S8 one. This is another feature where Apple can make an improvement in its new phone.

All eyes are now on Apple’s upcoming phones and soon we will all learn what exciting new features its new products will offer.
