Since the introduction of the first generation of iPhone in 2007, Apple’s flagship product has seen significant innovations and undergone series of upgrades both on its software and hardware. Almost nine years after it was first launched, it is now being rumored that Apple will soon introduce not one or two, but three distinct types of iPhone 7.
It may sound confusing, but it only means that the upcoming iPhones will not only be limited to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, which both are speculated to have standard single-lens cameras. According to macrumors, a Chinese website shared that Apple is currently working on a second version of iPhone 7 Plus, which is dubbed by iPhone enthusiasts and some insiders as “iPhone 7 Pro.”
If such rumor is true, then consumers would basically choose between two distinct features of iPhone 7, the single-lens camera (iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus) and the dual-lens camera rumored to be present in iPhone 7 Pro. Thus suggesting that screen size will not only be the thing consider in the upcoming iPhones but the camera as well.
The rumor of a new mobile phone having a dual-lens camera is, in fact, old news, but what makes it more interesting is the idea that it will be incorporated with the iPhone 7 in the guise of iPhone 7 Pro. In addition to a more reliable camera-lens which may cater the technical needs of “selfie aficionado,” the upcoming iPhone 7 Pro is also rumored to incorporate the long awaited OLED display system.
And as the number-based naming scheme of Apple would suggest, iPhone 7 Pro will also share similar features of iPhone 7 in general. The anticipated iPhones is rumored to be released in the latter part of the year, most probably September as tradition would suggest and as macworld.co.uk also speculated; and it will include updates such as curved glass edges, a faster processor, and a better camera as the point of distinction. As Forbes emphasized, the birth of a dual-lens camera in the form of iPhone 7 Pro will help eliminate the range’s infamous camera bulge.
Hopefully, if these iPhone rumors will be actualized, any plans for purchasing an iPhone this year should, at least, be postponed for further updates on the rumored iPhone 7 packed with a dual-lens camera.
