New leak from China’s Weibo shows the upcoming Apple iPhone 7 in Pink Gold color.
The purported image claims to show the back panel of the iPhone 6 successor with redesigned white antenna lines in tow. The lines shown in the leaked photo are in-line with the past leaks.
Going by the leaked photo, a cutout towards the far left on the back panel will house the main camera unit, while the one next to it is for the LED flash. This means the long-rumored dual-camera set-up, seen in high-end devices like LG G5, will be designated to the bigger sibling iPhone 7 Plus.
GSM Arena, citing rumors, indicated that Apple might ditch the 16GB base model for a 32GB one. Speaking of iPhone 7 release date, Apple is believed to launch this handset along with the bigger “Plus” variant in the usual release timeframe of September.
In addition, many rumors point to no radical design change for the iPhone 7. Only the internal configurations, both software and hardware, will apparently change. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also noted saying the iPhone 6 successor will not feature many “attractive selling points.”
However, it’s hard to believe that Apple will not be making any radical design changes this year, because it would mean the iPhones look the same for two straight years.
Going by the past rumors, Apple might remove the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7. By doing so, Apple will be able to make the handset completely waterproof.
Not to forget, removal of headphone jack will also allow the tech giant to accommodate a bigger battery cell, thanks to the extra space. Battery has been a key factor in deciding which flagship phone to purchase and Apple fans would be pleased to have bigger battery capacity onboard.
Other rumored iPhone 7 features include a faster TSMC-built A10 chipset, OLED-based display panel and a touch-sensitive home button.
