This may be the curtain being lifted ahead of time.

With the iPhone 7 release just over the horizon, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has perhaps released that 15 major changes coming to both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus handsets:

New True Tone displays like the iPad Pro range, with laser based proximity sensors for faster response times

32GB, 128GB and 256GB storage tiers will replace 16GB, 64GB and 128GB

2x 12MP dual rear camera limited to iPhone 7 Plus, uses 1x wide angle and 1x telephoto lenses

Upgraded ambient light sensors on both new iPhone cameras for better low light shots

Camera flash LEDs doubled from two to four with warm and cool colours

3.5mm headphone jack removed

Second external speaker and integrated amplifier for louder, richer output

Basic IPX7 water resistance – both phones can withstand splashes and full submersion for up to 30 minutes.

2GB RAM for iPhone 7, 3GB RAM for iPhone 7 Plus

Next generation A10 chipset sees CPUs hit 2.45GHz clock speeds and 20-30% performance gains

3D Touch 2.0 sensor with more distinct haptic feedback

Home button replaced with non-clicking touch sensor with haptic feedback

Antenna bands removed from the back of both models for cleaner look

Two new colours: dark black and piano black (latter in limited quantities for 256GB model); space grey colour option ended

While most of these features were at least somewhat expected, the most significant changes are the upgraded cameras, storage and removal of the headphone jack.

Kuo has yet to comment on rumors that that iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will receive the largest proportional battery upgrade in iPhone history, especially with the additional room left for a larger battery given the purported removal of the headphone jack.

As always, stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
