Did you realize that this most likely a case for the 4" model due out this spring?

Apple probably hasn't even finalized the iPhone 7 design..

There may still be wiggle room for issues they discover, but it's pretty much finalized by now.

Idk but the opening for the camera is not bigger or much different than that on 6's cases

I'd say so. Since it's just a case leak, it's still open to interpretation, but it's looking like the next iPhone (at least, the smaller version) will just have the one rear-facing camera.

I would be really disappointed if it looks too similar to iPhone 6/6s. I always wanted s-pen and its features embedded with my device (instead of carrying one on my keys, and Samsung pay is better (as long as it's not blocked by carriers) if the note comes with forcetouch and I can figure out how to remove bloat - I'll switch. Believe me I like iOS, but iPhone 6/6s look outdated compared to a few other devices. Android has fought up with app permissions and doze feature like iOS, I'll just have to figure out how to track my family members and get updates on time. And I'll play all the good games and use apps on my iPad.
Sorry just thinking out loud.

So, of course taking with a Glacier Sized grain of salt, we're to conclude that Apple is most likely dumping the 3.5MM, and that now there's a dual camera setup...
The more I see about this jack elimination the more I think it's true and the more it makes sense (that it would be done not, because I don't think removing the jack makes sense). Look at the Macbook, they made a single adapter and people still bought the overpriced thing (overpriced because a more powerful rMBP costs just as much).
So unfortunately it does seem that the writing is on the wall for the 3.5MM jack, at least on Apple products, and they'll get away with it too (if it weren't for those meddling kids)...

The only way I'd be "ok" with Apple removing the 3.5mm jack is if they added usb-c to the iPhone, and had a port to plug in the charger as well. Then at least it'd be using some sort of tech standard

There's no lack of accessories even cheap ones for lighning port. I know others will be affected by missing "Jack" but my primary headset is BT that I got for $17 from Amazon - and I cannot be bothered with the rest. I hate wires dragging from my head to my pocket - you have no idea how many times I dropped my phone because of that cord - keep in mind I hate cases and do not use one.

Let's hope not. Phones are in general already too thin now, and they could use some more battery.

Well, at the very least; the case confirms Apple wont be using that picture iPhone render for the actual phone. Suck too!
Because that iPhone render which looks like a iPhone 5S crossed with the iPhone 6 models is actually very beautiful and if Apple made that, I would buy it purely for the looks.
It si also a 100% durable design render.

This is a crummy leak.. Is there any reason people are thinking there might be a dual camera set-up on the IP7? It seems really un-Apple to make anything superfluous because simplicity seems to be the name of the game for them

Would not be worried about the design.Wont be the same no worries.Apple always renews its handsets since world is the world.
Iphone 7 will be smooth and new as hell.First of all they promised the iphone will be thinner than before so expecting a 6.5mm or under thickness,also new battery technology,same screen size but smaller body- probably they will cut the bezels from all the sides to make the phone more comfortable one handed.Expecting also a new scratch free,stronger material they will use on the next gen apple watch,
Also I believe the leaks about a new or actually two line are true.A mini iphone and a new pro series with different design elements.
I think apple realized they need to overhaul a bit:)
