No you didn’t jump a year into the future–and we haven’t lost the plot. But you did read that headline right. In this article we’re going to look at what 2017’s iPhone 8 will look like versus the Samsung Galaxy S8–also due out next year.

Why? Just for kicks, mainly. But also because though the iPhone 7 has only just shipped, rumors have been steady of what the iPhone 8 could be like. A number of rumors have also hinted at what the Galaxy S8 will be like as well. But please do keep in mind that this VS is just hypothetical right now based on the best rumors of the iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 that are available. Obviously we can’t predict the future, so it’s possible both Apple and Samsung could add or subtract to/from the features of their next flagships.

So without further ado, let’s gaze into our crystal ball to see how the iPhone 8 will compare with the Galaxy S8, starting with the specs:

iPhone 8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Major Specs

Rumored iPhone 8

  • Display: 4.7, 5.5 and 5.8in 1920 x 1310 Curved 4K OLED Display
  • Storage: 32, 128, and 256GB
  • CPU and RAM: A11 processor, 3-4GB RAM
  • Front Camera: 8MP
  • Rear Camera: 12MP dual lens, 4K video recording
  • Extras: Iris scanner, wireless charging

Rumored Galaxy S8

  • Display: 5.1 and 5.5in 2160 x 3840 Curved 4K AMOLED Display
  • Storage: 64GB internal, 256 expandable
  • CPU and RAM: Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 or Samsung Exynos Processor, 4-6GB RAM
  • Front Camera: 12MP with wide angle lens
  • Rear Camera: Dual lens 16MP, 4K video recording, optical image stabilization.
  • Extras: Iris scanner

As far as specs go you can expect the iPhone 8 to see a new A11 processor and M11 motion-coprocessor. But until those actually ship, there’s no way to tell how they compare against the rumored Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 or Samsung Exynos processor to be found in the S8.

As for RAM, expect the S8 to blow the iPhone 8 out of the water. Entry level iPhone 8’s might have 3GB or RAM with the Plus maxing out at 4GB. But the S8 could start at 4GB and max out at 6GB of RAM!

As for storage options, the iPhone 8 will likely max out at 256GB. It’s the breadth of internal storage that really beats the S8 here. Although, the S8 could actually end up with more storage. Even if it only offers 64GB internal, it would max out to over 300GB if it supports 256GB SD cards.

iPhone 8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Display

Yeah, no one knows what the displays on these bad boys are going to be. Though both phones will likely offered curved models. The iPhone 8 (or at least one of its versions) could have a curved dual edge screen. The same goes for the S8. Although expect the S8 to have a much higher screen resolution at 2160 x 3840 versus the iPhone 8’s 1920 x 1310.

iPhone 8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Camera

Expect version of each phone to offer dual lens rear cameras. But also expect Samsung to offer more megapixels for both the front and rear camera. The front S8 camera will probably be at least 12MP while the front iPhone 8 camera will be 8MP. Of the back lenses the S8 will probably max out at 16MP while the iPhone 8 has a 12MP dual lens. That being said, it’s likely Apple could have improved software that makes it pictures more colorful and richer. However the S8 is likely to take better night shots.

iPhone 8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Extras

Besides new designs for each, what could the “killer feature” of both phones be? Rumors say both will sport iris scanners, taking biometrics to the next level. However, the iPhone 8 is also said to support wireless charging. There are no firm rumors that the S8 will have wireless charging yet–but it’s still early.

iPhone 8 vs Samsung Galaxy S8: Verdict

You want us to give a verdict on two phones that haven’t even been announced yet? Please. What we will say, however, is that 2017 should see major upgrades for both phones. After all, 2017 is the tenth anniversary of the iPhone and next year’s phone will need to wow after this year’s iPhone retained the relatively same design as the iPhone 6s. Samsung will also need to wow considering the PR nightmare they’ve had with the Note 7.

Expect big things, basically. 2017 could well be the best year for innovation we’ve seen in quite some time.
