We have been hearing rumors regarding the upcoming Apple’s flagship, the iPhone 7, from quite some time now. Among numerous rumors and leaks, one rather surprising one was of an alleged use of ceramic back panel for the device. Today some further images leaked which all but support the use of ceramics in the manufacturing of the iPhone 7. This should be noted that ceramic body has already been introduced by HTC back in 2012, however the smartphone which featured such body (HTC One S) used to chip a lot.
In addition to the above mentioned leak, another image surfaced today featuring an alleged battery to be used in iPhone 7. If we look closely, the markings on the battery claim a capacity of 7.04 Whr. To put that into perspective, iPhone 6s was unveiled with 6.61 Whr battery which means that the upcoming flagship will get a 6.5% larger power source. Although we have no information of the output voltage, which is necessary to calculate milliampere-hours, it can still be speculated that a battery with larger Whr capacity will provide longer battery life.
Lets have a look at some other iPhone 7 rumors floating around. We are expecting the flagship to host a dual camera system on its back. This dual camera system might be featured in all variants or just one of them – it is yet to be confirmed. In addition to that, the antenna lines might be removed from the back panel of the smartphone. Another rumor suggests that the Apple iPhone 7 might be launched WITHOUT A HOME BUTTON. The Touch ID and the home button might be integrated inside the home screen.
Last but not the least, Apple might be dropping the 3.5 mm headphone jack however, reportedly, the smartphone might host a smart connector. The Smart Connector was released with the iPad Pro and is used to connect it to the Smart Keyboard. This ‘Smart’ Connector hosts the capability to transfer both data and power between two devices.
We will update you as the topic develops. So stay tuned.
