A new rumor from Japan says Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 will be released in a brand new “Deep Blue” color.

Going by the findings of the credible tipsters at Japan’s Macotakara, there is a good possibility that Apple could be getting rid of the standard Space Gray color for the super cool Deep Blue hue for the iPhone 7.

Meanwhile, Phone Arena says the difference in shade between Apple’s Silver and Space Gray variants is not much in reality. Hence, it makes sense for Apple to try something new. In any case, Apple will apparently continue to offer Gold, Rose Gold and Silver variants of the iPhone 7. The iPhone 6s successor is expected to be released in the usual timeframe of September.

As far as the design goes, the Apple iPhone 7 series will reportedly look identical to the predecessor iPhone 6s. This particular aspect has been repeatedly confirmed by none other than the KGI securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In addition, Kuo noted that the iPhone 7 will not feature many “attractive selling points.”

Moving on to rumored specifications, the bigger sibling iPhone 7 Plus is expected to come with dual camera setup and a smart connector. The flagship iPhone 7 might continue to feature the same single-lens camera. While the iPhone 7 will flaunt the same 4.7-inch pocket-friendly display, the bigger sibling will continue to flaunt the same 5.5-inch screen, MacRumors reported. However, at this point, there is no word available on the 4.0-inch variant.

Apart from the upgraded the processor (Apple A10) and the latest OS version, the upcoming flagship will apparently not feature a headphone jack. Instead, the Type C USB connector will act as an adapter for audio.

According to MacRumors, the iPhone 7 could come backed by 2GB of RAM, while the iPhone 7 Plus is expected to feature 3GB RAM. If reports are to be believed, the infamous antenna bands on the back shell will be redesigned or reduced.

Readers should, however, note that Apple has not confirmed any iPhone 7-related specifications, design or features thus far.
