The rumor mill has been heavily hinting for months that the Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be equipped with a dual camera setup. However, the latest rumor suggests that due to technical difficulties the iPhone 7 Plus will not be coming with dual camera feature.
Early rumors had suggested that the iPhone 7 Plus would be coming with two 12-megapixel cameras on its rear panel. One of its cameras was expected to include a sensor mainly for optical zooming. The leaked renders and schematics of the iPhone 7 Plus that have surfaced in the recent past have all suggested that the phablet would be featuring a dual camera system.
According to Mobi Picker, tipsters from Foxconn have revealed on Weibo that Apple iPhone 7 Plus will not feature dual camera system citing technical difficulties. In 2014, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were heavily rumored to feature sapphire displays, but Apple had reportedly dropped the idea after its supplying partner GT technologies went bankrupt.
The publication claims that the dual camera system for the iPhone 7 Plus would have been the only major upgrade over iPhone 6S Plus. However, since the feature may not make it to the iPhone 7 Plus, there may not be any significant reason to purchase the 2016 iPhones.
The same publication has also revealed a leaked photo of iPhone 7. Unlike previous rumors that only revealed the rear side of the device, the leaked image showcases its front side. One of the striking changes that can be easily observed is that the iPhone 7 will be featuring a touch-sensitive Home button. The Touch ID sensor that sports a circular metal ring is expected to deliver smoother and faster performance.
The white colored Apple iPhone 7 in the leaked photo seems to sport slimmer bezels on the upper and lower sides of the display. The positions of the selfie camera and the proximity sensor have also been changed.
