A recent photo leak might give customers some insight into how Apple Inc.’s new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus phones will look.
Weblog BGR published a series of photos Monday that claimed to offer a sneak peek of what the new phones will look like. The tech outlet reported that the new phones should look very similar to Apple’s current generation of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models. That said, the new generation might be thinner. Techradar reported that the iPhone 7 would indeed be slimmer than the current iPhone 6, which is 7.1mm wide. A source told the tech outlet that the new devices could measure in at 6mm and 6.5mm in thickness.
Rumors have circulated on the web for months regarding the new iPhone 7, especially its release date and how the new phones will look. In the recently leaked images, two new camera features can be seen. The iPhone 7 Plus will reportedly have a new dual-lens camera in the back while the other iPhone 7 will just have an upgraded camera lens.
And, of course, there is the matter of what exterior colors the new phones will come in. The 2015 models for the 6 and the 6 Plus came in a new rose gold color. Earlier this month, BGR published other iPhone 7 leaked photos that suggested a new color would be added. Deemed “Space Black iPhone 7 Pro,” the photo shows the phone with a black, almost matte-like exterior color. An electric blue color (which appears in the leaked photos) also suggest that could be another new feature color for the devices.
Prices for the new iPhone 7 have not yet been confirmed. Apple sent out invitations Monday for a Sept. 7 product launch event that is widely speculated to be the big unveiling of the next iPhone model.
