Yet another day, yet another iPhone leak. This has been the story of last few days and it is likely to continue till Apple launches its new smartphone in September. According to the latest images that have surfaced on Internet, iPhone’s next iteration will have the previously suggested bump in its camera module as well as the redesigned antenna lines. A separate set of images shows the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 7 Pro side-by-side.
The new images, posted by a Weibo user and highlighted by website TechTastic, show an alleged space grey model of the next iPhone. In the new images, just like earlier leaks, the headphone jack is seen missing and the camera lens looks much larger than previous iPhone models. The bump in camera module does suggest a much improved camera setup on the new iPhone. The larger iPhone 7 Plus and the rumoured iPhone 7 Pro are not seen in the leak.
In the meanwhile, another leak on Weibo (via Nowhereelse) goes on to show the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 7 Pro side-by-side. While the second two phones appear to the same dimensions, the last is shown to feature a Smart Connector at the bottom of the back panel, and a dual-lens setup for the rear camera. The camera module on the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 match previous leaks. The presence of an ‘S’ on the rear panels of all three smartphones however calls into question the credibility of the leak, with the labelling traditionally reserved for the ‘S’ cycle handsets like the iPhone 6s.
Putting further into question the credibility of the three iPhone 7 variants rumour, well-known tipster Evan Blass has suggested through a tweet on Monday that there will be only two iPhone models, this year codenamed ‘Sonora’ and ‘Dos Palos’. If this turns out to be true, it might mean that the Cupertino-based company might not be launching a Pro version after all.
