As Apple gets up to launch the next generation Apple iPhone 7, one of the heavily rumored aspects in the last few months has been the availability of a third variant in the lineup of iPhones.
In the last two generations, Apple has been able to successfully find a market for its second variant with a much larger display. The standard iPhone has a 4.7-inch screen while the Plus variant has a 5.5 inch display. No additions to the range were expected ahead of the Apple iPhone 7 launches before rumors about a Pro version leaked out.
Now, it is understood that Apple will not be offering a Pro version since it was largely meant as a backup idea to incorporate the dual camera set up. It is one of the worst kept secrets that Apple will be offering a dual camera setup in the upcoming iPhone. However, there seems to have been technical issues in incorporating this set up on the 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus. The iPhone 7 Pro was rumored to be slightly larger due to the use of a 5.8 inch display. Aside from having the dual camera setup, this device also would go on to have the Apple pencil according to those rumors.
Since Apple have been able to use the dual camera set up in the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, they seem to have killed the idea of the iPhone 7 Pro at least for now. Apple has to come up with something extremely good in terms of imaging so as to take the crown back from Samsung. The iPhones have been the best devices in recent memory when it comes to mobile photography, but Samsung has staged a comeback with the cameras on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S7. After the recent introduction of the 12-megapixel shooter in the iPhone 6S range, Apple seems to be heading in this direction.
It has been suggested that Apple’s refraining from launching the iPhone 7 with a number of cutting-edge features like OLED panels and so on. These are likely to be kept in the stores for the Apple iPhone 8, which may be launched 12 months ahead of schedule by completely omitting the iPhone 7S. For the time being, Apple deciding to stick with just two variants of the Apple iPhone 7 may be the talking point ahead of its launch just a few weeks away.
