Rear case of Apple iPhone 7 leaks sans antenna lines, protruding camera and earphone jack
An image of the rear case allegedly belonging to the Apple iPhone 7 has leaked. A photograph of the inside and outside of the case was taken off of a computer, and appears to have been snapped at Catcher Technologies. The latter is an Apple supplier that produces casings for the iPhone. Instead of the protruding camera seen on the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6s, there is some black material around the rear-camera cutout that was described as a "slight bulging outgrowth."

Other changes include the removal of the antenna lines on the back case, and as expected, the earphone jack has been eliminated. The source of the image says that the casing is thinner than the one used on the iPhone 6s.

The unveiling of the Apple iPhone 7 is still roughly half-a-year away. which means that we should take this image with a grain of salt. However, we should point out that in March 2014, images that were alleged to be that of the Apple iPhone 6 were leaked by a Foxconn employee. Those images turned out to be legitimate.

Also included in the slideshow along with the leaked photo, is a rendering of the back of the iPhone 7 made by an artist.

Hopefully this is real. Phones with glass backs are stupid and fragile.

Assuming you're referring to the Galaxy S/Note series, the iPhone 6/s is more likely to crack it's screen before any of the current Galaxy's.

I said glass backs. Not the screen. And no I wasn't referring to any particular Company.

I'm aware of that but if a drop test was to occur, the iPhone would crack it's screen before the Galaxy does it's glass back.

Also:
There's no metal sheet behind the rear glass of Galaxy s7. It's just a shiny tinfoil coating (look closely in the video)

Metal build obstructs wireless charging. Nice that Samsung did not use it.

Qualcomm have supposedly figured out how to get wireless charging with metal bodies
But no one's actually used it yet, maybe it's not quite ready for products yet

Hopefully next year's metal phones all have wireless charging

Fair play, I gotta give credit where credit is due but this is just one of many drop test. I still stand by my observation.

Do you work for Samsung?

All I said was I'm glad the iPhone doesn't have a glass back. Not only the fact it's fragile but it's also a fingerprint magnet.

I believe Phonearena posted a video of Galaxy S7 vs iPhone 6S+ and the Galaxy got trashed... Or is my memory hazy?

And the Galaxy phones are the best on the market.

The S7 seems like it would have the easiest to crack screen, drop it on the side and its done. Also why is the iphone 6s more likely to crack it's screen over the current galaxy S7?

Various drop test prove this. Yes, the Galaxy S7 is 50% like to crack but if you'd focus on trying to crack one of the sides of the Galaxy S7 VS the iPhone 6s, the iPhone would crack first.

Given that most people use cases, it's no major advantage of the S7 over iP6S

The undisputed advantage lies on it's features - way above any Apple device to date.

Dude, you totally work for Samsung. EVERY person knows that the S7 (having a glass back and a glass screen) would be more prone to damage after a drop.

also, why the f**k are so many SAMSUNG FANBOYS ON THIS ARTICLE?

Phonearena has a serious problem with idiotic samsung fans.

Nice placement of antenna lines now it looks more cleaner. And hopefully chinese companies would also stop striping lines at the back.
