Rumors: iPhone 7
Dual cameras, but only on select models
Apple has always steadily improved the iPhone’s camera, and since the introduction of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, has subtly separated them by making a few features unique to the larger Plus model. This may continue with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, according to rumors.
In a note to investors by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that was obtained by Apple Insider, the analyst hinted that the iPhone 7 Plus will sport dual-lens iSight cameras and 3GB of RAM for image processing. The cameras will offer limited optical zoom, using tech from LinX Imaging, a company Apple purchased in 2015. The analyst had previously said that these features would only be available on select versions of the larger iPhone, but now he claims it will be on all the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus models. Only the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 won’t get the dual-camera tech. Kuo is usually right, and the rumors are on his side, but only time will tell.
It is not the first time we’ve heard of multiple iPhone models, a report last year out of China said Apple was testing five different iPhone models. One of those models apparently featured a dual-camera system, though the report didn’t mention any of the other camera specs.
New design: No antenna lines or smart connector
If Apple follows its own mobile trend the iPhone 7 should come with an entirely new design. So far, rumors indicate that the next iPhone will be water resistant, feature liquid metal, and eliminate antenna lines. There are also rumors that it could sport a smart connector, though that’s in contention.
