Apple has always given us lots to get hooked on to but with the onslaught of Samsung’s latest release, the iPhone 7 indeed needs to be top notch—no lesser. After all, if buyers are being to wait this long and pay up a fortune then they will be expected to get features at least at par with what we saw in Samsung Galaxy S6 and will see in the Galaxy Note 5.

iPhone 7 Release DateSamsung has already stunned us with the 16 megapixel shutter and optical stabilization. The Galaxy Note 5 will offer a better deal with 20 MP here, we are sure. This leaves Apple in a tighter position than it imagined. If not the megapixel, the rumoured dual lens sensor in the iPhone 7 could indeed put Apple at the top again.

To begin with Apple needs to offer a superb screen resolution. Thanks to Galaxy S6’sQuad HD screen that renders 1440p screen resolution with a 577ppi of pixel density, Apple has to tie its laces real tight this time. Also, the Cupertino giant has to work around offering something sexier than the looks we saw in S6 and will see in the Note 5. Perhaps, a touch of Sapphire Glass could be the trick.

Android smartphones have already had it easy with wireless charging and Samsung has made this a standard spec with the Galaxy S6 and will seal this further with the upcoming Note 5 too. If Apple is taking note, it better offer something as good as iPhone 7.

As of now, these are mere expectations we are salivating on. Come September (probably), and we will know how much Apple puts into its flagship iPhone 7.
