It turns out that the iPhone 7 Plus will be receiving the one major upgrade that will enable it to compete with the countless Android smartphones out there in the markets.
According to report on 9to5Mac, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed that the larger smartphone is likely to be sticking to the moniker iPhone 7 Plus. He also said that the phablet from Apple is expected to land with a dual camera arrangement. Kuo said:
“Dual-camera to become a must-have feature for high-end smartphone. The initial market response to Huawei’s (CN) new flagship dual-camera model, P9, has been better than expected, and we estimate shipments may reach 10mn units in 2016F. In our view, more high-end smartphones will adopt this feature going forward. And, in order to maintain its leading position in the high-end market, we expect Apple will fully adopt dual-camera on the new 5.5-inch iPhone in 2H16.”
Along with Kuo expecting iPhone 5.5-inch model to boast of a dual camera setup, he also believes that the device will be embedded with 3GB RAM. As noted by Tech Radar, the heavy image processing that the iPhone 7 Plus will have to carry out is a reason for the company quickly upgrading to a higher RAM.
The iPhone 7 line is expected to be released in the fall this year and is said to more or less resemble its predecessor in terms of design.
Another recently leaked render of the two models in the lineup shows the iPhone 7 Plus is indeed equipped with a dual camera lens. The render also shows off the presence of a Smart Connector and absence of the 3.5mm headphone jack. With more leaks and details to surface in the coming months, stay tuned while the mystery around the two features unfolds.
