As with any Apple launches, there are a number of leaks and rumours surrounding it. Tipsters across the world has revealed many a details of the alleged iPhone from Apple. Well, nothing can be taken granted as of yet, however these leaks do give some valuable insights.
To be called Apple iPhone 7
Going by Apple's naming trends, it is expected that the upcoming smartphone from the Cupertino giant will be called the Apple iPhone 7. Ever since the launch of the first iPhone 3G by none other than Steve Jobs, Apple has followed a numerical naming for their upcoming device. Incidentally though, the Cupertino giant played around with the naming last year by calling their flagship device as the iPhone 6S.
Will come in Two Screen Sizes
Just like other years, Apple is expected to launch two variants of their iPhone - the base variant and the plus variant. In fact the iPhone 7 Plus is expected to sport a large screen 5.5 inch - just like the iPhone 6S Plus. On the other hand the base variant will come with a 4.7 inch display upfront. Details regarding the resolution of the display aren't known yet.
Thinnest iPhone till date
If rumours are to be believed the Apple iPhone 7 is expected to be thinner than last years iPhone. Apparently the iPhone 6S was the thinnest of all smartphone launched by Apple at 7.1mm. Guess what the all new iPhone will be thinner than this!
Metal? No more!
A report by DigiTimes suggest that the iPhone 7 won't be made of metal, instead the Cupertino giant will make use of a new mysterious compound element. Incidentally not much is known about the material Apple plans to use. But one thing is for sure, it will certainly make the iPhone 7 look more premium than the aluminium built iPhone 6S and iPhone SE.
Say bye to those Antenna Stripes
If report by DigiTimes are believed to be true, Apple will get rid of those white Antenna bands of the iPhone 6S in their next device. Incidentally this may be true considering the fact that a report by the same publication state that the Apple iPhone 7 won't be made of metal. Apparently the plastic antenna bands are useful for improved signal reception in metal body phone.
On the other hand a report by Chinese site CN Beta claim that the Antenna bands will still be present but they won't be so conspicuous like before. Instead Apple will try their best to hide the bands within the body of the device.
Headphone jacks goes missing?
Recently a leaked image of the iPhone 7 that started trending on the web, so the bottom of the alleged smartphone without a headphone jack! Well, that quite strange considering the fact that the 3.5mm jack for the headphone had become a standard port in all smartphone of present date. Apparently the possible idea behind this move is to make use of the proprietary Lightning port of the iPhone for listening to music.
iPhone 7 Plus may come with a Dual Rear Camera Setup
According to a recent report, the Apple iPhone 7 Plus might come with a dual rear camera setup. Apparently this information comes from none other than notorious Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities.
Incidentally the dual rear camera setup will help the iPhone 7 Plus to capture more depth of field even in low light conditions. Besides it can help in zooming onto a subject.
To support Wireless Charging
Unlike other flagship Android smartphone available in the market, the iPhone 6S didn't come with Wireless Charging capabilities. However it seems that Apple has taken note is ready to incorporate the facility onto their next smartphone namely the iPhone 7.
