The showdown between the Apple iPhone 14 Pro and Google Pixel 7 Pro will surely take place in a few months. It will be an exciting new match in the smartphone industry, as both phone designers are seeking for larger market share in the high-end segment. Apple and Google haven’t announced these smartphone models officially, but we have obtained some details. For example, the Apple iPhone 14 Pro will introduce a number of hardware changes, such as a stronger chipset, better camera, and revamped display, compared to the current iPhone 13 Pro. The Google Pixel 7 Pro will certainly deliver better performance than the current Pixel 6 Pro.
The iPhone 14 Pro may still have a triangular camera arrangement and it has a flat-sided handset. Instead of the infamous notch, there will be a cut-out on the display for Face ID sensor and selfie camera. However, it is probable that the regular iPhone 14 will still have a notch on the display. The Google Pixel 6 is a huge design change compared to the Pixel 5, but the Pixel 7 may still have an identical design.
We may expect that the iPhone 14 Pro will have a 6.1-inch display, while the iPhone 14 Pro Max with a 6.7-inch display. These are similar display sizes to the current iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max. As the current Pixel 6 Pro, it is certain that the Pixel 7 Pro will have a 120Hz refresh rate. If you prefer to play 3D games with fluid animation, it is recommended to choose the Pixel 7 Pro.
According to the rumor mill, there could be slight enhancements in terms of the camera performance of the iPhone 14 Pro. It is certain that the iPhone 14 Pro will have a primary camera, ultra-wide camera, telephoto, selfie camera, and LiDAR sensor on the back. However, there’s a possibility that the primary camera will have a bigger resolution for detailed and brighter shots. There may not be a significant change for the camera of Pixel 7 Pro as well. Overall, the iPhone series offers a more mature camera implementation, in terms of hardware and software.
With its A16 Bionic processor, the iPhone 14 Pro will definitely maintain a lead over the Google Pixel 7 Pro, in terms of performance level. Additionally, the new iPhone may come with LPDDR5 RAM technology that promises faster data transfer. Google has confirmed that the Pixel 7 Pro will be powered by the next-generation Tensor chip, compared to the first-generation Tensor chip inside the Pixel 6 Pro. The new Tensor chip emphasizes more machine learning and AI implementations, instead than raw power.
The iPhone 14 Pro should have a slightly larger battery compared to the current iPhone 13 Pro. But, there’s no guarantee that there will be an impact on the battery life, especially if the A16 Bionic processor and the display will consume more energy. Just like the Pixel 6 Pro, Google’s next flagship may have a 5,000mAh battery, but the former is being plagued by rather mediocre battery life.
