Two of the most awaited phablets are the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus. These two handsets will be released later this year, but today we will compare them using the rumored specifications that we have.
The Galaxy Note 7 has a super AMOLED display of 5.8-inch that supports a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels at 506 ppi and it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4. On the other hand, the iPhone 7 Plus has a smaller LED-backlit IPS LCD display of 5.5-inch that supports a lower resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 401 ppi and it’s protected by an ion-strengthened glass. We don’t know anything about their designs, but according to rumors, Samsung will opt for the same glass and metal design, while Apple will prefer to use an aluminum body, but without antenna lines.
Chipsets, RAM & Operating Systems
The Galaxy Note 7 is expected to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 823 chipset, 6GB of RAM and it will most likely run on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The iPhone 7 Plus will be powered by an Apple A10 chipset, 2GB of RAM and it will run on iOS 10.
The Galaxy Note 7 will be released in four internal storage variants of 32GB, 64GB, 128GB and 256GB which you will be able to expand up to 256GB using a microSD card. The iPhone 7 Plus will come in three internal storage variants of 32GB, 128GB and 256GB, but it will not feature a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
The Galaxy Note 7 will sport a primary camera of 12MP that features phase detection autofocus, LED flash, OIS, touch focus, face detection, auto HDR, panorama and a secondary camera of 5 MP.
