It’s been quite the stretch of time since Samsung supplied Apple with NAND flash storage, but it looks like the hiatus might be coming to an end.
Back in January of this year, it was confirmed by Samsung that, at some point this year, the Gear S2 — the company’s Tizen-based smartwatch — would feature support for the iPhone.
Apple’s A9 processor did incredibly well to outperform rival chipsets from the likes of Samsung and Kirin last year, despite sticking to a dual-core architecture while others are using as many as eight. But three months into 2016, it has lost its crown.
In a list of top chipsets published by AnTuTu, the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus chip is narrowly beaten by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820, which powers Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge — and other high-end Androids of 2016.
One of the strengths of the iPhone lineup has always been its camera, but it’s safe to say that some competitors are certainly catching up in this regard. So how does Samsung’s newest flagship compare?
