Wow, Samsung! We didn’t know you had it in you. 

Today, Samsung publicly dissed the iPhone during its highly anticipated Galaxy Note 8 launch event.

During the keynote, Samsung spent about five minutes early in the speech comparing the image quality and video stabilization features of its brand new camera to its chief rival, the iPhone 7 Plus.

According to Samsung, the Galaxy Note 8 packs a significantly more powerful camera than any available Apple products — at least for now.

Samsung managed to avoid perhaps the most important detail when comparing the Note 8 to the iPhone. In just a couple of weeks, most experts agree that Apple will release a brand new device unofficially dubbed the iPhone 8

But that wasn’t all! 

Samsung also threw some heavy shade at Apple when it talked about the wireless charging capabilities of the Note 8. In case you didn’t know, Apple is expected to add wireless charging to the iPhone 8.

Then there was a low blow. Samsung called out Apple in a huge way by touting the existence of a headphone jack in the Galaxy Note 8. As you may recall, Apple removed the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus because, as Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller explained, the company had the “courage” to do so. Samsung didn’t take that lightly apparently, and fired back at today’s keynote.

So is the Note 8 actually better than the iPhone 7 Plus? Honestly, it doesn’t matter because in just a few weeks, Apple will probably announce a brand new smartphone that will trounce the Note 8’s technology.

The iPhone 8 is expected to pack in a brand new camera system and advanced 3D scanning technology that could put it leaps and bounds ahead of Samsung. For now, we definitely love the Note 8 camera, but we wouldn’t be surprised if our infatuation dies down following the anticipated Apple event in September.
