Design

Since the rumoured thinning body for the iPhone 7 is spreading like wildfire, it’s most likely to be proven true. And you should probably expect thinner bezels with a possibility for an edge-to-edge screen. As for the Samsung Galaxy S7, it all depends on whether or not you liked the current S6 and S6 Edge, since the smartphone maker doesn’t have much plans to enhance the design of the phone. But there’s also the fact that there will be enhancements made to picture quality and performance, and there’s that.

Camera

Since the iPhone 6S actually received a major camera upgrade from its brethren the iPhone 6, you shouldn’t be expecting too much for the upcoming flagship. As for Galaxy S7, you should also be expecting similar camera specs, and it’s worth mentioning that both would record 4K video.

There, some of the heavily-rumoured rumours of the upcoming flagships of Samsung and Apple. Which are you looking forward to the most?
