Alleged iPhone 7 Plus photo shows all 4 finishes, looks a bit fishy
As we are getting close to September, it looks like every day, a new iPhone 7 leak pops up. We've seen cases, schematics, and even pictures of unadorned back plates, most pointing at the same thing — the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus will look a lot like the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, only with a slightly re-designed antenna band and a dual camera module on the Plus variant.

We've already seen photos of what is claimed to be the back shells of four iPhone 7 units, revealing the 4 finishes that the smartphone would be available in. While some time ago, the rumor mill claimed that there will be a new Deep Blue or Space Black color replacing the good old Space Gray, the aforementioned photo refuted those claims.

Today, we get to see a new photograph, this time of four alleged back panels of the iPhone 7 Plus (or Pro). These are, again, colored in Space Gray, Silver, Rose Gold, and Gold, with no new color to be seen. They look like they are close to a finished state, as the camera module looks complete, however, we can't help but noticing that there is no logo on the back, nor an engraving where it would be placed. Also seen in the photo are the 3 contact points for a Smart Connector like the one on the iPad Pro series. However, the picture quality is not great and you'd be forgiven if you find said points to look a bit funky or tacked on.

All in all, these don't really strike us as the final versions of the iPhone 7 Plus' back cover. This doesn't mean that they are not genuine – they could easily be meant for test devices. However, they could also be parts for iPhone knockoffs. What's your take?

That space grey tone is way too light, I'd think that's the silver variant if it weren't for the other silver variant in the picture...

Papa_Ji is entitled to voice his own point of view, like everyone else. Saying a certain device is the ugliest of 2016 - that's by no means "trolling". @NoToFanboys

I'm not just talking about his comment in this article, take a look at his comments in other articles, if you don't consider that trolling, then you may have a problem.

To be honest, his comment does have some weight. The camera module ruined it for me.

I vote LG G5 as 2016's ugliest phone.

Judging by so called innovation, I guess USA no longer the world leader as they claimed to be. My sympathy

Where is any statement from Apple about innovation in the iPhone 7?

But they haven't yet... So every single time some Apple-hater says something like "so called innovation" they're talking out of their ass, it's in pretty much every thread on the iPhone 7. I don't like the design of the leaked iPhone 7 either, but people here just make up endless bulls**t.

I thinks it's not so much that Apple said it, it's that Ifans (not all) say it to every thing apple does

Have not seen any fans claim something is Innovative when it's not!!! For my entire time I spent on PA the only ones screaming "innovation" are sarcastic android goons like the one above. If you're referring to that - then you're wrong it's android goons that call every color change - "innovation". (I use "android goons" - does not mean normal android fans - just the trolls).

Tim cook will say REVOLUTIONARY device iPhone 7 Plus with multi-rear camera.

24. AlikMalix unregistered

Is dual camera not revolutionary? If they're used separetly like LGG5 than I don't think it's revolutionary, but if they're used together to make a much better photo - then yes that's revolutionary - because everyone will use the idea to improve photos. But I'm keeping my reservations till I see how Apple will apply dual camera setup.
