Since the past few weeks, many rumors and leaks featuring the upcoming Cupertino flagships have surfaced. Among those rumors, we have heard talks of a smart connector’s presence in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Recently. new schematics of these smartphones yet again confirm the previously leaked rumor. In addition to that, these diagrams claim that the awaited line-up will feature smartphones which are 1mm thicker from their predecessors, probably owing to to a larger battery size.
This must also be mentioned that the smartphones will have identical height and width as their predecessors, however the iPhone 7 Plus will feature a dual camera setup at its back whereas the smaller sibling will come standard with a single sensor on its rear panel.
The aforementioned smart connector is visible at the bottom-rear of both the smartphones (notice the three dots). This Smart Connector has already been featured with the iPad Pro for the support of Smart Keyboard.
Few days ago, some leaked CNC plates confirmed the screen sizes of both smartphones – 4.7-inch for iPhone 7 and 5.5-inch for iPhone 7 Plus. In addition to that, it was clearly visible from the plates that both handsets will feature iSight camera with larger lens. This means the devices will have larger aperture, thus allowing better image quality in low light conditions. On the other hand, another important feature had been confirmed, the dual camera module of iPhone 7 Plus. Note that the renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI securities was the first one to claim this feature would be a part of Apple iPhone 7 Plus. He said that Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be offered in different variants. There will be an edition of the 7 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. Moreover, Apple also acquired an Israeli imaging company LinX which will allow Apple to produce cameras to produce DSLR quality photographs for its smartphones.
