Citing an anonymous tipster, MacRumors has shared a photo of a dummy unit in silver hue reportedly pertaining to the Apple iPhone 7.
Apple’s infamous “white antenna lines” have been a cringe-worthy aspect of the iPhones for a long time now. Going by the leaked dummy unit, Apple has finally got rid of those dull lines. Every year, we hear rumors that the tech giant will be removing those lines. But this time around, the dummy photo clearly shows that Apple heeded to the customer feedback.
To top it off, the same dummy unit photo shows a Smart Connector dock at the bottom of the smartphone. Moving to the camera, the photo indicates that Apple could be using a “flush design” specific to the primary camera of the iPhone 7. The terminology flush design translates to having no protrusion of the camera unit.
Past rumors suggested that the 3.5 mm headphone jack will not be part of the upcoming device. Removal of this headphone jack helps Apple in making the handset waterproof, Phone Arena noted. This also indirectly helps in giving more space to accommodate a bigger battery unit, which is another feature Apple fans complain about.
Moving on to other rumored configurations, the iPhone 7 will reportedly come powered by a faster TSMC-made A10 chipset and it will carry an OLED-based display panel. This handset is believed to feature a touch-sensitive home button, along with water- and dust-proofed exterior.
Very recently, a schematic diagram of the Apple iPhone 7 surfaced and as rumored earlier, the exterior design looked similar to the iPhone 6. While Apple CEO Tim Cook said the next-generation iPhone will have futuristic features, credible analyst Ming-Chi Kuo noted that the iPhone 6s successor will not come with many "attractive selling points," Phone Arena noted.
