There are plenty of leaks out there claiming to show the iPhone 7 in all its glory, some of which are pointing to some pretty breaking changes coming on the device, but here’s what’s very likely to be the first photo revealing a genuine case for the next iPhone.
Coming from China via famous leaker @OnLeaks on, this case appears to confirm what we already knew about the iPhone 7 and shows almost nothing new or surprising.
Unfortunately, it only reveals the back of the phone, so we can’t tell for sure if the audio jack is gone or if Apple wants to use two speakers or a dual grille, but the leak actually confirms the repositioned antenna line and camera bump.
As it turns out, Apple won’t go for a flush camera, so the bump will continue to be there. What’s important to have in mind, though, is that the camera has a new position, as it’s been moved closer to the side of the phone, most likely in order to make more room internally for a bigger battery. The camera is also bigger and likely to receive an upgrade, with some sources saying that the standard 4.7-inch model would get OIS, currently available exclusively on the Plus model.
iPhone 7 Plus getting more exclusive upgrades
The model pictured here is without a doubt the 4.7-inch model, judging from the way the man holds it in hand, and the Plus is also expected to receive a dual camera.
The antenna lines have been moved to the top and bottom of the phone in an attempt to offer a clean back design, and this aligns with previous rumors suggesting that Apple would only offer a minor redesign on the iPhone 7 as compared to the current generation.
Other than that, there’s not much to see in this photo, so take it like unofficial confirmation that these are the changes that Apple’s planning for the iPhone 7. Hopefully, the Plus model will indeed get the dual camera and other exclusive upgrades because, otherwise, the iPhone 7 might have the same fate as the 6s and continue the decline in sales that the company reported earlier this year.
