With roughly eight weeks before the next iPhone debut, a newly-leaked image shows the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 back casing. The most obvious change is the redesigned antenna lines. Rather than extending lengthways across the main body of the phone like the current iPhone 6s, the iPhone 7 antenna lines are sleeker and smaller. As shown in the picture, the white antenna lines are only visible at the top and bottom edges of the device.
The photo also highlights changes to the camera system as well. The 4.7-inch iPhone 7 seems to incorporate about a 25 percent wider camera hole, meaning a revised or updated camera will probably be used.
As of now, it’s unknown as to whether the new camera will incorporate more megapixels or allow in more light to take better photos. The 5.5 inch iPhone 7 Plus is rumored to feature a dual-camera component system which will take even better photos thanks to the larger sensors. One rumor indicated that the Plus’ dual-cameras are a set of twin 12 megapixel sensors.
The image accompanies the usual cavalcade of rumors that accompany a new iPhone release. Other rumors include the controversial removal of the headphone jack in lieu of Lightning or Bluetooth wireless headphones, a rumor about a new Home button that occupies the touchscreen, improved waterproofing, a Smart Connector for the 5.5-inch model, upgrades to the processor and graphics chip and rumors of increased storage space.
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is set to debut at a media event in September, following the usual Apple product cycle.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
