Apple iPhone 7 vs. the Samsung Note 7: A Third Quarter Battle

 Apple is expected to release their iPhone 7 series this September. Meanwhile, Samsung normally comes out with their new line of Note units around mid-August, but the company may be moving it back a little this year. So a September release for the Note 7 is highly likely as well. With both items coming out at roughly the same time, there are a lot of things to consider.

According to Mac Rumors, the iPhone 7 will come with a dual-lens camera system from South Korean supplier LG Innotek. This means an improvement on low-light performance and different level options for the zoom feature.

The dual-lens camera is actually already available in the market, as LG and Huawei units already support the system. However, the feature has not been popularly received, so Apple has the opportunity to make it mainstream. It all depends on how Apple fuses it with their software.

The iPhone 7 will also reportedly come without an headphone jack, as Apple will provide Bluetooth-powered earphones instead. The unit is expected to even thinner than the iPhones currently in the market, yet will make use of the next-generation A10 processors manufactured by TSMC.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Note7 - called so to keep up with Samsung's flagship family, the S series - will sport a 12MP camera with Super OIS Plus. According to PC Advisor, some sources even claim that the Note 7 will also be fitted with a dual-lens camera.

In addition, the Note 7 series is rumored to support either the Exynos 8890 processor, or the Qualcomm Snapdragon 823. It is possible that Samsung will provide both options for their consumers, depending on the demographic of their sales.

More notable is the possible 6GM of RAM that will come with it, which will make the Note 7 the first of its kind.
