This is the video you may have been hankering for.
A 4K video comparing three dummy iPhone 7 units has hit, the video lending credence to the rumor that Apple will offer the next-gen handset in two sizes.
The video, picked up by Dutch blog TechTastic.nl, was posted on YouTube by the account ‘Bshop Kuwa’, which appears to be linked to a Japanese iPhone reservation store.
A gold 4.7-inch iPhone 7 is shown beside two larger handsets, one in silver and one in rose gold. One of the two 5.5-inch handsets shown in the video has a single-lens camera, while the other is fitted with a dual-lens.
Previous rumors had suggested that Apple was working on two versions of the 5.5-inch iPhone 7, dubbing them the “Plus” and “Pro” variants. These rumors died down after a while, although there could be some validity to them given this video.
It’s also worth noting that all the phones in the video bear the model number A1429, which actually identifies a version of iPhone 5 in Apple’s numbering scheme and indicates that these are certainly mockups.
Apple is expected to launch the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus next month. Pre-orders could begin Friday, September 9, ahead of retail availability on Friday, September 16, according to noted leaker Evan Blass.
As always, stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
