The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are the smartphones from Apple that are rumored to arrive next year. However, the rumors of both the devices started swirling even before the release of iPhone 6S and 6S Plus handsets.

Design and Display

According to Phone Arena, the exterior appeal of the iPhone 7 ad 7 Plus will not be entirely different from iPhone 6S and 6S Plus handsets. Both the handsets may continue to sport series 7000 aluminum build.

Rumors are rife that the next generation iPhones won’t feature a physical Home button. Hence, both the iPhones will have the fingerprint scanner embedded inside their display. Speculations also suggest that iPhone 7 models won’t feature a 3.5 mm audio jack. Hence, the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus handsets will be the slimmest iPhones ever.

The iPhone 7 is likely to feature a 4.7-inch display with a screen resolution of 750 x 1334 pixels. The iPhone 7 Plus is expected to feature a 5.5-inch full HD display. The 3D Touch feature that arrived with iPhone 6S and 6S Plus will be also available on the iPhone 7 and 7S Plus handsets.

Chipset, RAM and Camera

The next generation iPhone 7 handsets are rumored to be powered by Apple A10 chipset that will feature a 64-bit processor built by TSMC with 16nm FinFET technology. Like the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus models, the successor models could continue to support 2 GB of RAM.

Since Apple upgraded the rear camera to 12-megapixel and front camera to 5-megapixel on iPhone 6 and 6S Plus this year, the successor models are expected to sport the same set of cameras. However, it is likely to arrive with newer functionalities and enhancements.

iPhone 7 and 7 Plus Release Date

Apple follows a pattern of releasing new iPhones in the month of September. The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to release within the first two weeks of September.
