The iPhone 7 isn’t expected to be launched until later this year, but as usual, rumours on the highly anticipated – and controversial – device have already cropped up. According to an anonymous source, which is said to be reliable, the iPhone 7 will not have a protruding camera anymore; it will also feature a cleaner design with the absence of plastic antenna lines found on the latest iterations of the iPhone.
MacRumors first reported that the iPhone 7’s rear camera will sit flush with the smartphone’s chassis, effectively eliminating any noticeable camera bump. This is possible through the use of a thinner camera module, which should be good news for those who were worried about scratching the camera lens of their smartphones. Interestingly, the iPhone 7 Plus is said to be packed with a dual-camera setup as well.
As for the plastic antenna lines found on the iPhone 6 and 6s (along with their Plus variants), these will apparently be absent on the iPhone 7. As a result, the appearance of the upcoming iPhone should look cleaner than current iterations of the device, although the antenna lines on the top and bottom of the smartphone will supposedly remain. Other than that, the iPhone 7 is said to share the same design of its predecessor, for better or worse.
If these information are to be believed, the iPhone 7 is likely to be superior over its predecessors in many ways, not to mention the fact that it could come with up to 256GB of storage. Then again, not everything will be gladly accepted, such as the exclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Of course, until the iPhone 7 has been officially unveiled, nothing is set in stone yet.
