The Samsung Galaxy S7 and iPhone 7 are two devices that will be released this year. Keep in mind that currently we don’t have any confirmed specifications of these two upcoming handsets, so we’ll make a comparison based on the most accurate rumors and speculations circulating on the internet.
Designs & Displays
The Galaxy S7 is expected to come with a small design change, but it will not be a radical one. For example, Samsung has ditched the ugly plastic back of the S5 which had perforated dots, in favor of a glass back, which made the S6 look extraordinary. It’s rumored that the S7 will have the same glass and metal design, but with some small changes. The device will feature a display size between 5.1-inch and 5.7-inch that will support a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels.
On the other hand, the iPhone 7 is expected to feature a display size between 4.7-inch to 5.5-inch that will support a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. It seems that iPhone 7 will come with a completely new design, a thinner body and bezel.
Processors & RAM
If rumors prove to be right, the Galaxy S7 is going to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM, but there will be another variant that will be powered by the next generation Exynos processor. The iPhone 7 will most likely come with an A10 processor and 3GB RAM.
The Galaxy S7 will sport a primary camera of 12.2MP (that will be found on the rear side of the handset) and a secondary camera of 5MP (that will be found on the front side of the smartphone). The iPhone 7 will sport a primary camera of 12MP and a secondary camera of 5MP that will have wide angle lens.
According to rumors, the Galaxy S7 is expected to house a non-removable battery of 3000 mAh. The iPhone 7 will not receive a bigger battery than the iPhone 6, mostly because the iOS 9 is more power efficient than the iOS 8. With other words, the iPhone 7 will come with a non-removable battery of almost 1800 mAh.
