Less than half a year is left in the release of the iPhone 7, however rumors and leaks regarding the smartphone have started surface already. Earlier this year, a reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo announced that the upcoming Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be offered in different variants. There will be a special edition of the 7 Plus (which might be called iPhone 7 Pro) that will, allegedly, feature a dual camera system on its back. These lens are to be manufactured by Sony and are expected to be of 12 megapixels each. One of the lens will host a larger aperture than the other and will be accompanied by OIS. The other lens will be equipped by 2-3x optical zoom. Almost a year ago, Apple was given a patent for the exact photographic setup mentioned above.
The aforementioned KGI Securities analyst once again surfaced with an alleged confirmation that the dual camera system will only be featured in the larger variant of the upcoming iPhone 7 series. These claims should not come as a surprise as Apple has already set the trend of providing better camera in its larger smartphone. For those who don’t know, previously released iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 6 Plus come with Optical Image stabilization (OIS) though the smaller iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 are deprived of the later feature. On the other hand, Mr Kuo further claims that the dual camera system will come with a ‘overwhelming impression‘, maybe even better than the recently released LG G5.
Thanks to Feld & Vold, smartphone case makers, extruded renders of the smartphone based on the leaked image shown above. These renders (attached above) are an educated guess based on rumors and shouldn’t be taken for granted.
Lets have a look at other major rumor of the upcoming flagship. The iPhone 7 is rumored to have ‘ no headphone jack ‘, Apple is expected to remove the 3.5mm standard headphone jack from its upcoming smartphone to achieve the amazing thickness of 6.1mm (similar to the iPod touch). Of course the company will come up with another alternative to the 3.5mm jack, hopefully the wired headphones will connect to the iPhone 7 using its Lightning port and Bluetooth headphones will connect wirelessly. Apple is rumored to be working on Lightning-equipped EarPods too while a second stereo speaker could be introduced instead of the headphone jack.
Stay tuned for the latest news.
