Never too early to talk about the Apple iPhone 7?

Never too early to talk about the Apple iPhone 7?
Yes, the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus have been available for only two months. But it seems like it is never too early to talk about the next iteration of Apple's iconic smartphone. According to a report published on Sunday, the Apple iPhone 7 could feature a larger screen than the 5.5-inch glass behemoth on the iPhone 6 Plus. This time, the display would be made of sapphire glass. Sapphire, of course, is the second hardest material on earth after diamond.

The phone's body could be made of liquid metal, which might make it strong enough to prevent another #bendgate "scandal". The Touch ID sensor will allow for the removal of the home button for the first time in iPhone history, and a quad-core A8 processor will be under the hood. With a 128GB model available this year, the report says that Apple could try to top that by offering a 256GB model next year. A 14MP camera might adorn the back of the phone.

The report states that the next iPhone is rumored to feature a built-in projector, like seen on the Samsung Galaxy Beam, as a way to snare business from the enterprise. And just in case you are wondering how a battery could be powerful enough to support all of these new features, the report adds that the battery would be based on new technology that would allow it to power the phone for an "extended" period of time. The Apple iPhone 7 would be expected to arrive in the third quarter of 2015, priced higher than previous versions of the phone.

Obviously, this report needs to be taken with a grain of salt. It actually sounds like an iPhone wish list from someone whose current two-year contract expires just in time to buy the next iPhone. We still have quite a few months to go before more serious leaks start to appear.

Why do we need to talk about an iFruit 7, doesn't Apple already sell the PERFECT phone? Why would they need another?

Wait, doesn't Apple make a "s" phone before jumping to the next number? Shouldn't the iPhone 6s & the 6s Plus need to come out before the iPhone 7 comes out?

I think this iPhone 7 talk is premature.

Go to a doctor and solve your inferiority problems versus iPhone.

Don't you think the deffinition of a perfect phone changes with time ?
iPhone 6 will fell like a brick compared to the iPhone 7.

Yeah... oh look, clickbait. The latest round of unfounded rumors, hopes, and dreams. All the stuff that they said would happen on the iPhone 6, but isn't ready for prime time.

Highly doubt Apple would throw in a projector. Making a projector accessory for the phone and over pricing it would be the Apple thing to do.

Liquid Metal has been a filed patent for a few years. Would be cool to see this happen in a lot of new metal phones.

Liquid Metal would be amazing
Its harder, has higher strength and is more elastic than titanium alloys, and yet should be cheaper too

And I thought we'd get a longer break from the iRumors, iConcepts, and iLeaks. I guess because the iPhone 6 was somewhat underwhelming, it is time to crank up the iHype.

Latest example of click bait. There is nothing remotely close to facts available about the real 6S phones, so just make it up.

Sound good if they remove the home button and replace touch home button.

Looking forward to see for the next iPhone.

iPhone is a legend and will remain. All the world will always talk about it and will always wait for its next generation. Sorry for the other phones (if we can call them phones). It is a reality. There is iPhone and the others.

Now the iChumps themselves know they have an outdated model in hand. LOLs
Just taking cues from Android is the ONLY thing iFruit knows

Still better than having an outdated model in matter of weeks like with android. ... Oh that one is an android unique... Yeah Apple will definitelly start to introduce a new phone every other day to keep up with incredible android that is so great they have to "copy" it to survive.

Lol, that is so fake....I could see liquid metal and sapphire glass and a higher megapixel sensor for 4k recording, but Apple is not going to put a projector in. Just like they aren't going to use the A8 that was in this years products, like always it will be a new a-series...

Does that mean that apple plans on keeping 6s and 6s plus bandable.

"Leaks" & "rumors." Who in their right mind would believe that? These are all intentional marketing ploy by manufacturers to make people want their products. Unless you're an iFan or Droidzombie, this is such a big news just to be buried within 2 minutes.

Newsflash!!!

The iphail 7 will be purchased by pretentious f**kstains and wankers, unemployed teenage girls and welfare cheats the world over. Forget a mission to Mars, plan a mission to the sun or Uranus and send these Jobs/Cook-fondling douche-canoes off on it.
