Apple and Samsung have been waging a relentless enmity. And if earlier the rivalry between manufacturers of mobile devices often proceeded in the courtroom, in recent years they have gone over to fight within technology. And this is, admittedly, have impacted positively on their products.
First, Apple introduced the iPhone 6, admitting the error issue only compact smartphones. Then Samsung brought to market a line of Galaxy S6, abandoning the cheap plastic in favor of new materials. In iPhone 7, the Cupertino’s company has made the next move, offering an unmatched level of performance and dual camera.
With the release of the flagship of this year, Samsung retained the recognizable design of its smartphones, giving Galaxy S8 large display, while refusing not only OK, but the logo on the front panel. As a result, the smartphone was only a small frame at the top and bottom for the earpiece and sensors.
The alleged dimensions of the iPhone 8 – 150 x 73 mm
Thanks to the “eight” Samsung hopes to significantly boost sales and regain lost market position. Will the new iPhone 8 that will be released this autumn, to adequately respond to this move of a competitor?
It is known that iPhone 8 will have a new larger OLED display. Along with the new case material this will make the smartphone even thinner. The weight of the apparatus, which, unlike the iPhone 7 is planned to produce in glass, not metal shell will also be less. In addition, it is expected that the iPhone 8 will be equipped with a more capacious battery.
Judging by the recent leak on Weibo, on the dimensions of the iPhone 8 will be between 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus, having a larger screen than both phones. The device size will be 150 x 73 mm, display panel – 133 x 65 mm (5.8 inches, the ratio is 18.5:9). If the information is confirmed, then talk about the completely frameless design of the “eight” is not necessary. At the same time the iPhone 8 will be slightly bigger than the Galaxy S8, the dimensions of which are characterized by the expression of 148.9 x 68,1 mm.
From hardware chips iPhone 8 will offer a 3D-scan your face and iris, built-in display, fingerprint scanner, an updated voice assistant with artificial intelligence, support for augmented reality. In the new anniversary iPhone 8 the company will significantly raise the functionality of their devices, giving new decent design and materials.
However, the remaining six months before the release of “eight” to compete with the Galaxy S8 and S8+ will have the iPhone 7. It will be even harder to do it the next Apple smartphone if it receives only a minor improvement (which is unlikely). In recent years, Samsung has been able to raise the bar in the design of its flagship solutions, and although it did not become unattainable, this company made a serious breakthrough.
