Apple’s iPhone 7 rumors are everywhere, and the good news is Apple’s supposed to deliver a significant upgrade to its latest smartphone. The latest reports and rumors say that iPhone 7 will have new exciting features, more powerful chips inside and much larger storage capacity.
Unfortunately, the Cupertino-based company won’t release its next-generation iPhone until the fall of 2016, so there are still months of development and marketing campaigns ahead.
A report said that Apple is busy working on finalizing the iPhone 7 and multiple rumors have said it will be a modest update that continues to use a design similar to its predecessor, the iPhone 6.
Not much information is known about the upcoming iPhone 7, questions about its specs and design remain unanswered. But expectations are very high, tech pundits believe that the upcoming iPhone 7 will be powered by the next-generation A10 processors designed by Taiwan-based TSMC. And if TSMC makes the chips, which has been rumored recently, then some space could be saved, which might help Apple slim it down without making sacrifices in other areas.
According to MacRumors, the new phone is said to have a similar shape and look, as the iPhone 6, but may have a camera that protrudes less. Reports also said that antenna bands across the back of the device might be removed, but are expected to remain on the sides of the phone.
While the iPhone 7 is largely expected to look similar to its predecessor, the iPhone 7 could be a very different one on the inside, as reported by CNBC recently. The phone is said to have a different camera system, one that uses two cameras instead of one with 2-3x optical zoom and improved performance in low-light conditions. It’s also expected to use a standard single-lens camera as multiple sources have said the dual lens camera is exclusive to the 5.5-inch iPhone.
Internal specs and design are still unknown, but rumors are already swirling that Apple might continue on its path of introducing more powerful, efficient devices with each design iteration.
Another report claims that the new Apple smartphone will have an all-metal design and might use fan-out technology to save space and reduce the thickness. Meanwhile, Mac Otakara claimed that the iPhone 7 could be built with ruggedized features such as water and dust-resistant.
In addition, the front of the iPhone is also expected to see some changes with a longer earpiece cutout and a relocated ambient light sensor.
