Samsung has been hitting hard at Apple for still using the same slab design unlike its Z Fold and lack of powerful zoom to take pictures of the moon. But it can not compete with Apple’s A-series mobile processors; the standard iPhone 13 model outshined Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra in 2022 with faster single and multi-core performance.
Since its inception, Samsung have been trailing in performance with its flagship Galaxy lineup against the iPhone. In recent years, the gap has been widening, mainly due to Apple’s superior ARM chip technology and heavy increase in R&D. As a result, both Qualcomm Snapdragon and Samsung Exynos chips have struggled to keep up.
While Apple’s rivals have not caught up with the performance of its existing mobile processors, the company is expected to equip the upcoming iPhone 15 Pro models with an advanced A17 chip built on a 3nm process which would improve performance by up to 15% and lower power consumption by up to 35%.
