iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus Design & Build

iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus Display

The iPhone 7 equips a 4.7-inch display with 750 x 1334 pixels resolution and 326 ppi. The screen to body ratio is 65.6%. Apple has used the Ion-strengthened glass and the oleophobic coating to protect the display of this phone.

iPhone 7 Plus has the same 5.5-inch display as the iPhone 6 Plus. iPhone 7 Plus has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and 401 ppi. The screen to body ratio on the iPhone 7 Plus is 67.7%. The protection on the screen of iPhone 7 Plus is same as that of the iPhone 7.

iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus Hardware

A new Quad-Core chip which is named as A-10 Fusion by Apple has been placed in the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. 2 cores of this chip are responsible for high performance while the other two are responsible for running lighter tasks keeping the efficiency maximum. Apple’s very own performance controller will handle which core handles what tasks on these new phones. Both the iPhone(s) are equipped with a 2 GB RAM. Apple has skipped the 16 GB and 64 GB variants of its phones this time. The new iPhone(s) will come in 32/128/256 GB storage options. 

With the 7th iteration in the iPhone family, Apple says goodbye to the 3.5 mm headphone jack. The headphones now come with lighting connector that you can plug into the charging port. We don’t exactly know why Apple negated the 3.5 mm jack as the users will be able to plug-in either a charger or the headphones into the phone at one time. The iPhone now has stereo speakers replacing the 3.5 mm jack. Stereo speakers can produce much better, clearer and dynamic sound now. iphone-7-and-iphone-7-plus-images-6iphone-7-and-iphone-7-plus-images-7

Six core graphic setup is there to handle the games and applications which require the GPU on the phone. The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus can produce high definition and intensive graphics in games and are also capable of editing RAW images in Adobe Lightroom.
