Apple seems to be flirting with the fresh wind of change, as rumors have it that the iPhone 7 will carry more than a few changes, other than the controversial removal of the headphone jack.
The first and most wooing change is allegedly on the camera, which will sit flush with the rear casing, enabled by a thinner camera module. And we think it is safe to claim that this is an update that brings relief along for all iPhone fans, since the camera ring will no longer be a continual point of impact when putting the phone down.
The drawback with this – according to MacRumors – is that Apple may be considering equipping the iPhone 7 Plus with a dual-lens rear camera, but the smaller iPhone 7 is expected to include a more traditional primary shooter. At least, the American colossus is keeping the same pace with other rivals, such as Samsung’s Galaxy S7, which will be coming later this month and will also feature a flush or near-flush camera.
Moreover, MacRumors claims that Apple will get rid of the antenna bands across the rear – as seen on the iPhone 6 and 6S – resulting to a slightly thinner device, not to mention the cleaner all-metal look on the back, which adds to the phone’s prestige and elegance.
At this point, however, it is worth mentioning that judging by Apple’s new ‘smart aluminium technology’ we could be talking more about a disguise than a complete removal. In any case, any thickness reductions will be truly slight and probably unnoticeable to the untrained eye.
The rumour mill keeps exporting words on the iPhone 7’s design language, but none of what has surfaced can be supported for the time being. The handset’s circulation is due for September, as tradition has it, and until then one thing is for sure; we will see and hear loads of leaks and rumours.
