So according to the Wall Street Journal, the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are to be released early next year and will feature a pressure-sensitive display on their new device. If you think the feature sounds familiar, it is...because it’s basically like a 3D Touch from the Apple iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus and the Huawei Mate S.
If this is true, then the reason why Samsung is doing so is to compete with Apple next year. As you may be aware, rumours have it that Apple is planning the “iPhone 6c” along with the second generation of Apple Watch some time in March. Whereas Samsung could announce the new Galaxy series at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona around February.

If you’re wondering what’s that big fat iPhone cover on the image, well that’d be the new iPhone 6s Smart Battery Case by Apple. They have quietly launched it in their online store and it costs $99 (RM421.67).
Coming in Charcoal Gray and White colour options, inserting the Apple iPhone 6s into the charger will automatically display an intelligent battery status on the smartphone’s lock screen and in the Notification Center, it also increases the talk time by up to 25 hours, 18 hours on internet usage, and even longer audio and video playback. We don’t know how much mAh is that, but that’s seriously a lot of power.

Yes, you read that right. A shop in China has figured out how to upgrade your Apple iPhone or iPad’s storage up to 128GB of space without causing it to brick on you. How did they do it? Hey, it’s China. They can do anything.
Apple products aren’t easy to modify, as they install a software protection that verifies the hardware in the right configuration. That’s not even the main problem, because you need special tools to work on the hardware and chips and it’s difficult to do so. Not to mention, the iPhone 5s’s motherboard is really tiny to be ejected out safely for the memory chip inside. According to the shop owner, he has very little trouble with iPads and the iPhone 6 is easier to handle but the iPhone 6s is still untested.

There have been whispers in the Internet that Samsung is negotiating with Sony to acquire the IMX300 sensor, which the Xperia Z5 series currently have. Rumours indicate that it could be coming to the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S7.
However, according to Weibo (seriously, where are they getting these rumours lol) it seems that it is not the case anymore as Samsung have decided to go with a 12MP camera. Besides that, they also want to increase the sensor size to ½.0-inch instead of pushing higher pixel count and equipping the device with a dual-photodiode technology.

Recently a new research report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo surfaced, with plans about Apple’s 2016 iPhone launches, including the rumoured A9-based 4-inch iPhone and a 3GB RAM iPhone 7 Plus.
According to this report Apple has a new 4-inch iPhone in the making that has a similar design to the iPhone 5s. Although equipped with an A9 processor, it will not include 3D Touch support like the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus. This is to keep the two products as their own. Apple aims to release the new product in the first half next year and could ship 20-30 million units through the end of 2016.

Nowadays, Android smartphones are getting scratch, dust and water-resistant materials on. While the Apple iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus did become more durable and better protected against some accidental water splash, quite a few people have done some tests to prove that the latest iPhones are still not up there with some of the other high-end and waterproof Android models.
