The rumor mill is offering some neat options for the iPhone 7 Plus upon its release.
A current report states that the upcoming handset may feature a 256GB storage option and larger 3,100 mAh battery as two differentiating features over the smaller iPhone 7.
The report does not specify if the iPhone 7 Plus will still have 16GB base storage, or if Apple will opt for larger storage options such as 32GB, 128GB and 256GB, compared to the iPhone 6s Plus lineup of 16GB, 64GB and 128GB models.
The claimed 3,100 mAh battery would be approximately 12.7% larger than the iPhone 6s Plus’s 2,750 mAh battery, but the rumor is questionable following reports claiming the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be nearly as thin as the new iPod touch.
The story also backs a previous rumor that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models will retain 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screen sizes respectively.
Apple may remove the 3.5mm headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in favor of an all-in-one Lightning connector, possibly helping the smartphones achieve between 6.0mm and 6.5mm thinness and a waterproof design. The devices may also have a faster TSMC-built A10 chip and Intel 7360 LTE modem and non-metallic casing with hidden antenna bands. iPhone 7 Plus models could have 3GB of RAM.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
