The wait for the new iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus is almost over, as Apple are highly expected to launch the new generation iPhones in September.
Latest leaks have revealed several upcoming features in the new device, which could be available in three variants. The iPhone is currently sold in regular and Plus versions with the latter placing an emphasis on only larger screen size. This could change in the upcoming iPhone generation, as the arrival of a Pro model could change the scenario significantly.
Apple has had relative success with the iPad Pro versions so much so that they came out with a smaller iPad Pro a few months ago. The iPhone 7 line-up will see the 4-inch model unified under one name. Hence, the upcoming generation will be sold with screen sizes spanning 4 inches, 4.7 inches, and 5.5 inches. The model with 5.5 inches, which is essentially the current iPhone 6S Plus, may receive a stylus similar to the iPad Pro pencil. This will help the iPhone compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 in a much better way.
Up until now, the Plus range has been unable to offer much apart from a large screen whereas the Galaxy Note 6 accompanies a range of features designed to take advantage of its large screen.
Some of the elements that are surely expected on the next iPhone include the A10 chip, which is expected to be faster, smaller, and more efficient than the current A9 chip on the iPhone 6S models. An even faster Touch ID recognition will be appreciated, while the phones may be the first in the iPhone line-up come with 3 GB of RAM as standard on the top end models. Dual camera setup has been rumored heavily.
Sony has been contracted to supply the sensors for the iPhone camera. Recent delays from Sony to an earthquake mean that LG could be brought in to supply sensors for the initial few batches of the Apple iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus. Laser autofocus feature could make its debut in the iPhone for the first time after having even been seen in some mid-range phones like the Moto G4 Plus. Some leaks have even suggested that the next-generation iPhone may be the first to come with 256GB of storage. This would be especially useful to record longer 4K content.
