The iPhone 7 is expected to be announced within the coming next 2 weeks.
These are the rumored changes:
– minimum storage space will be 32gb (up from 16gb devices)
– maximum storage will be 256gb (doubled from 128gb)
– 4.7in display, 750×1334 resolution
– A10 and M10 processors
– 2GB LPDDR4 RAM
– 1960mAh battery
– rear facing 12Mp camera, 1/2.6in sensor, F/1.9 and 1:3 microns pixels
– removed headphone jack
Apple spent $20m on LinX, a company that makes 3D camera sensors, and so far it hasn’t used the technology in any iPhones yet, so there’s rumors of a 3D camera coming in for the iPhone 7 Plus, and perhaps even the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 plus is expected to have a dual camera system, using two different sensors to process the same image to remove noise.
The iPhone 7 is expected to be the same price as the 6S now. The iPhone 7 Plus is expected to be more expensive than the 6S Plus because of the increased costs to Apple for the dual camera design.
New selling points:
If the removed headphone jack is true, the iPhone 7 may be truly waterproof. There is also a small chance that it will come with wireless charging capabilities.
We’ll see how many of these rumors are true in the next couple of days.
