Samsung and Apple are now gearing up to release their upcoming devices. Tech enthusiasts believe Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and iPhone 7 will definitely shake the tech market once they become available later this year. Now, here's the latest round-up of update about Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and iPhone 7 release date, specs, features and rumors on the web.
Let's start with news about the heavily-rumored Apple iPhone 7. Forbes reports Apple will likely remove the 3.5mm headphone jack of the upcoming iPhone. As a replacement, the Cupertino-based tech firm will install a new connector for specially designed earpods, which will give better listening experience to users. In fact, a video posted on Youtube confirms that the next-generation iPhone will not have a headphone jack.
Furthermore, the iPhone 7 is rumored to have revamped antenna lines, which would give better connectivity to cellular networks.
With the removal of headphone jack, Apple is expected to heavily rely on the camera functionality of upcoming iPhone 7. The company is known for developing high-quality gadgets with great camera features, so it is not surprising the next iPhone will have powerful camera technology.
Tech Radar says Apple is now building a research facility in France dedicated to the production of iPhone camera sensor. The facility is reportedly populated with engineers from STMicroelectronics, who produce state of the art gyroscopes and accelerometers.
For iPhone 7 camera features, a report from Fortune claims the device will have larger camera and bigger image sensor.
As always, all of the iPhone 7-related details mentioned above should be taken with a proverbial pinch of salt. Apple has been notoriously secretive about its plans and has not yet announced anything about the next iPhone.
On the other hand, Samsung confirmed its Galaxy Note 7 will be released on August 2. As the device's launching comes closer, rumors about its features are now swirling around the internet.
According to the Verge, Galaxy Note 7 will sport a 5.7-inch Quad HD Super AMOLED display. Inside, it will be powered with 6GB of RAM and Snapdragon 820 (or possibly 821). In addition, it will have a 12MP rear camera and 5MP front camera.
So far, the biggest rumor about the device has been the iris scanner, which would allow users to unlock Galaxy Note 7 by simply looking at the camera. Also, the scanner would strengthen the device's security features.
