As fans of Apple look forward to the yearly iPhone event in September, new leaked images of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro have surfaced.
The photos indicate that the upcoming smartphone, at 4.7 inches, will come with a larger rear camera that protrudes from the body. Its 5.5-inch counterpart will have an enhanced dual-lens camera.
Apple recently shared a preview of the updates that come with the software which powers its devices at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference 2016. New versions of the macOS Sierra, iOS 10, tvOS 10, and watchOS 3 were shown as developers continue to work on the latest updates to their apps to maximize the new features brought on by Apple.
Their final versions are likely to be made available in the fall, starting in September, when Apple is expected to formally introduce the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro.
Aside from its cameras, consumers are looking forward to the new gadgets being the first iPhones to be released without the standard 3.5mm headphone port.
As replacement, the company is said to ship the handsets with a Lightning adapter accessory inside its box, allowing users to make use of their headphones using the Lightning port found at the bottom of the phones.
A number of third-party adapters being made in advance for the release of the new iPhones in September have already been previewed.
Only minor changes have been integrated onto the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus/Pro as their designs are said to resemble those of their predecessors.
There have also been new photos of what are believed to be the rear cases of the new smartphones. With both iPhones having upgraded cameras, the 5.5-inch handset will come with the Smart Connector port, widely known to be a reserved piece for the Apple’s iPad Pro tablets.
In an image shared by Nowherelese.fr, the rear camera of the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 protrudes and is visibly larger than the iPhone 6. This has led to speculations that the new handset will come with an improved CMOS sensor.
Seemingly a gold iPhone 7, the smartphone’s antenna bands trace its top and bottom sides.
Another photo shows a rose gold iPhone 7 Plus/Pro that comes with the dual-lens rear camera. Similarly, its antenna bands run through the top and bottom edges while its Smart Connector port can be found on its rear. This will enable the phone to make use of accessories such as the external keyboards and even wireless chargers. Such ability has already been exhibited by the iPad Pro, specifically its 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch models.
BGR suggests that, if Apple can make use of the camera technology made available to them following its Linx acxquisition in 2014, it is strongly possible that the iPhone 7 camera can come with excellent camera performance.
According to Nowhereelse.fr, the leaked information for the new iPhones came from "valuable contacts within Pegatron subcontractor factories.” Apple supplier Foxconn is reportedly the primary manufacturer of the upcoming smartphones with backup from Pegatron.
