The iPhone 7 rumor mill has been kicking into high gear recently, and today two more reports regarding Apple’s 2016 iPhone have surfaced.
First up, alleged factory CAD drawings of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus have been leaked by @OnLeaks and uSwitch. The images show devices that look largely similar to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, but with a few notable tweaks that you’ll notice when you look closely. For example, the bottom of the phone is missing a headphone jack, which lines up with previous reports that claimed that Apple would ditch the 3.5mm jack on its next iPhone.
Meanwhile, the back of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus shows a couple of differences between the two models. The iPhone 7 Plus has a larger camera cutout, suggesting that it’ll have a dual lens camera setup while the iPhone 7 will have a single lens camera. Additionally, the iPhone 7 Plus has a Smart Connector at the bottom of its backside, like the one found on the iPad Pro models. It’s also said that, while they’re not visible in these schematics, both iPhone 7 models will have antenna lines at the top and bottom of the devices, like what’s shown in this image.
Meanwhile, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has issued a report that claims that Apple will have two models of its new iPhone: the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. It had previously been suggested that there could be two iPhone 7 Plus models, a regular version and a Pro model, with the former having a single rear camera and the latter have a dual camera setup. Now Kuo says that Apple will stick with a single Plus model with a dual camera system.
Kuo also claims that the iPhone 7 Plus will come to market with 3GB of RAM in order to meet the dual camera setup’s image processing needs.
