Some rumors out there receive instant nods since they are quite plausible, while others, well, not so much and the recent speculations over the iPhone 7 probably fall in the latter category.
A recent report on BusinessKorea featuring iPhone 7 design renders suggests that the handset may sport a ceramic form factor instead of a metal chassis. The render also displays the rear panel of the device sans the antenna bands that users so detest. Earlier reports have also hinted at Apple bidding adieu to those antenna lines.
The image also indicates that the upcoming Apple handset will adopt a Super AMOLED display. As noted by PhoneArena, this may be quite unlikely given that KGI Securities analyst Ming Chi Kuo strongly believes that the iPhones won’t be adopting AMOLED displays until 2019.
What’s more? Well, this time around the device may officially be wearing the waterproof tag. This particular speculation has been doing the rounds for months now and won’t come as any surprise if Apple announces iPhone 7 to be waterproof. The 12MP iSight camera remains, but the 3.5mm headphone jack is done away with in the render. As also, there is a faster Touch ID onboard as well as a “new 3D Touch,” which suggests that the feature may receive an upgrade. There is also an A10 chip onboard and quick charging capability.
Some rumored specs in this report coincide with what has been heard before, while certain others don’t seem quite possible atleast with the iPhone 7. Given the vague nature of the report, take this one with a huge pinch of salt. Apple fans can check the iPhone 7 image here.
iPhone 7 is expected to be making an appearance at Apple’s annual fall event sometime in September. Prior to that, the 4-inch iPhone 5se is said to be arriving on the tech scenario next month. Apple loyalists can keep their fingers crossed for this one and keep checking back for more updates.
