Samsung’s latest commercial warns iPhone users that they’re in for a rough ride at Apple’s announcement next week.
A number of new Apple products, including the iPhone 14, Apple Watch 8, and even the HomePod 2 and AirPods 4, will be unveiled during the company’s Far Out event on September 7.
Those who purchase the new Samsung phone, however, are cautioned to expect a few heads to turn—”just not in your way.” Instead, the South Korean company suggests that the more fascinating and stunning devices are the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S22, respectively, due to their unconventional designs and high-quality cameras, respectively.
While Apple has yet to formally introduce the iPhone 14, leaks and speculations have painted a fairly accurate image of the device. The iPhone 14’s camera will also be inferior than that of the Samsung Galaxy S22. The highest-quality camera on the iPhone 14 is said to have 48 megapixels. Conversely, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has a 108MP camera while the standard S22 delivers 50MP.
Compared: Samsung Galaxy S22 with iPhone 14
We can’t make a fair comparison until we’ve used both phones, but if the rumours about the iPhone 14’s specifications are true, the entry-level model might not be as far behind Samsung’s offering as the commercial makes it seem.
It has been speculated that both smartphones would feature 6.1-inch OLED screens, with the Apple offering a higher resolution (2532 x 1170) than the S22 (2340 x 1080). It’s unlikely that anyone will notice the change in pixel count.
With 8GB of RAM, Samsung regains some ground on the iPhone 14, which is expected to contain 6GB of RAM. However, in our benchmarks, the S22’s processor wasn’t as fast as the A15 in the iPhone 13, so if Apple provides a CPU in the iPhone 14 that’s on par with or better than the iPhone 13, it might not be too far behind Samsung.
Finally, we anticipate the phones to have comparable prices, with Samsung possibly being slightly more expensive in some regions. The S22 can be purchased for 799 (£769, AU1,249), and if the price of the iPhone 14 is the same as the price of the iPhone 13, then it will sell for 799 (£779, AU1,349).
Once Apple unveils the iPhone 14 next week, we may expect some of these specifications to alter. The two phones are so similar that listening to Apple’s biggest competitor’s recommendations on which iPhone to buy might prove to be a bad idea.
Instead, if you’re looking for a new smartphone, we advise you to hold off until the iPhone 14 has been reviewed by experts (like us). The Google Pixel 7 is expected to be released in a little over a month, so if you can hold out for that, you’ll have another another smartphone choice to consider.
