The iPhone 7 official unveiling is very close now. And according to the leaks law, leaks are inversely proportional to the number of days left for the unveiling of the device. Nowhereelse, one of the more reliable websites out there today showcased a picture of what appears to be the next generation Apple flagship handset.
While there’s no guarantee that this is really the iPhone 7, the French website has a great track record of reliable leaks over the past years. In any case, here’s the picture Nowhereelse found:
Looking at the above photograph, you can observe that the iPhone 7 will highly resemble its predecessor, the 6S. It’s made of aluminum and has the same curvy design. Regardless, there are a few physical differences that you can make out.
- The biggest change you will observe is that the Apple logo on the back of the phone is no longer a shiny silver. In fact, it looks transparent as you can clearly make out the fingers of the person holding the phone.
- The antenna design has been completely revamped. The previous gen iPhone had ugly antenna lines that were running across the back of the iPhone. The phone pictured above looks much sleeker without them.
- The camera lens in the picture above looks bigger and more protruding. This could point towards a major camera upgrade.
- The iPhone 7 will also lack the traditional 3.5 mm headphone jack. (Can’t be seen in the picture)
We had heard previous whispers about the camera on the bigger iPhone 7 Plus to be a dual sensor system. While this might still hold true, Apple might reserve the new module to some models only because of supply chain constraints.
While the absence of the audio jack is something most users have shown their dislike towards, a previous leak in the same website showed that the iPhone 7 will feature dual speakers. If these stand true, it will surely be a device to look forward to.
What we know…
The Apple iPhone 7 is expected to be announced by the Cupertino giant in a couple of months. The phone will be released in two versions– a smaller 4.7-inch device and a larger 5.5-inch device. Both of these handsets will feature iOS 10 and will be powered by Apple’s A10 chipset. Internal storage is expected to come in 16, 64 and 128 GB ranges with 2 gigs of RAM. The phones will come in with a 12 MP primary camera with a lot of improvements and the bigger version is expected to sport a dual sensor.
The secondary camera is expected to be a 5 MP shooter. We’ll also get 3D Touch and water-proofing in this device.
