By Christian Zibreg on Aug 31, 2016

Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, along with the recently launched Note 7, may not be enough to steal Apple’s thunder as the Cupertino firm preps to unveil its next iPhone on September 7.

According to the rumors, a sophisticated dual-lens camera system is expected to give the iPhone 7 DSLR-like features with RAW camera capture, optical zoom, better lowlight photography and more.
