NEW YORK, June 29: New leaked images of Apple’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the iPhone 7 showed that both models — iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus — will have larger cameras as compared to its predecessors.
According to a report on technology website 9to5mac.com, the devices will also have redesigned antenna lines.
The photos corroborate with previous rumours that the dual-camera component will be exclusive to the 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus screen size. There appears to be about a centimetre gap between the two inner cameras enclosed in a pill-shape protruding component, the report said.
The leaks also suggested that the smaller 4.7 inch iPhone 7 will also receive a camera upgrade. The camera hole is substantially larger and the entire component has been aligned closer to the corner of the device.
The images also show the lack of horizontal antenna lines on the back of the phone. As has been reported many times, the antenna lines have been redesigned and are now present only at the chassis edges.
Other changes like the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack and inclusion of two speaker grills suggest stereo sound output.
Apple is expected to launch iPhone 7 officially around September. Apart from camera upgrades, major external design upgrades are tipped for the “OLED iPhone 8” in 2017.
