Apple will launch the iPhone 7 somewhere in September, but the official date is not yet known. Similarly, Apple has not shelled out any details regarding the iPhone 6S successor, but as usual, leaks, rumors, and speculations are all over with what the supposed iPhone 7 will look like.
Just like the two previous years, Apple will stick with a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and a larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus. While the previous iPhone 6/6 Plus and iPhone 6S/6S Plus were majorly differentiated by the sizes and some minor differences in the camera specs, including a lack of OIS on the smaller variant, Apple has reportedly been working on making the two even more different. The camera area is still the aspect of concern here and according to speculations, Apple will pack significant upgrades to either device’s camera.
In a new leaked photo, it all seems but confirmed that the larger iPhone 7 Plus will come with a dual-lens camera, just as the rumors have been saying. As for the smaller iPhone 7, the photo also shows that there will be significant upgrades to the camera, with an iris that is 25% larger than the iPhone 6S on board. While rumors claim that the dual camera on the iPhone 7 Plus will pack two 12MP lenses, there is no word on the specifications of the smaller iPhone 7, but it will probably be the same megapixel count, but with larger pixels. More so, the current iPhone 6S has a 12MP lens, something that Apple would like to keep while at the same time increasing the size of pixels in order to allow in more light – hence better photos even when in low light conditions.
In another leaked video, it seems Apple will bring the iPhone 7 in a Rose Gold color variant. The video tries to put the 2016 version and the 2015 version side by side, but the latest version is just a dummy of the real thing that is yet to be announced. The video shows a missing 3.5mm headphone jack, just like it has been speculated, with the replacement being a Lightning connector. The back of the phone is missing the usual horizontal white bands, which have now been moved to the top and bottom of the phone. This makes the phone feel better than the iPhone 6S, which kind of makes up for the missing design changes. However, you might be a little unhappy with the huge camera bump on the back of the smaller iPhone 7.
Even though these dummies provide us with details of the looks and designs of the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, getting the internal specs out of them is not possible. Which means we can only wait for Apple’s announcement, which should be in early September and the official release to follow about two weeks later. We’ll be here to let you know when that happens.
