Alleged photo of the iPhone 7 rear pops up again, depicting subtle design reworks

We might be getting pretty close to September, judging by the increased number of leaks we are seeing about the next iteration of the Apple iPhone. This morning a photo surfaced from depths of the Chinese blogosphere that claims again to be showing the back of the Apple iPhone 7

We can see the larger camera lens on the back, something that has appeared in previously leaked sketches and photos, but this time it seems a tad flusher with the surface, so we don't know which one would turn out to be the real deal in the end. We can also see that the old antenna line strips that have been present on the iPhone 6 and 6s are gone from the back, and have been moved to a location on the side just under each corner. 

On a side note, Apple could be adding waterproofing certification to the iPhone 7, according to latest rumors, so that might have been one of the reasons for moving the antenna lines, but that's again something that can't be judged from such a photo. It would be a great way to move those 80 million pending upgrades into the iPhone 7, though, while keeping the watershed redesign moment for next year's edition.

You should proofread, you're making a fool of yourself.

At least the Autocorrect seems to work on them.

I agree (If he lives hundreds or thousands of miles from Cupertino and would travel there just for an iPhone).

There is no difference between you and him. You are another Apple fanboy like him/her. You also need help. Android fans don't need help. They thrive for technology and features, not for the logo.

You still keep falling for his bait.

I'm not sure how well the depth of the camera bump can be judged, either way it's not flush so sticks out too much. :D I'd hope the plastic bands are colour matched a bit better to whichever colour body they use too but I'm sure they will be...

I hope it comes with PureVew technology with the big hump, and 3Gb Ram, and quadcore Cyclone Twister Cpu. And finally all metal.

Want it to sell like hotcakes (Apple has lost a good bit of its luster)? Have the bottom part slide out where the battery can be removed. Increasing the screen size to at least 5 inches wouldn't hurt either. You can do it, Apple.

Like that hotcake the LG g5? Apple is moving towards inductive charging, slide out batteries will never come to the iphone

The LG brand doesn't exactly attract buyers like flies to shít. Apple does.

I'm interested to see what they can do with the camera. The 6S had one of the best cameras.

I'd take the big bulging hump with the twice better camera with Exneon flash.

6S had a great camera compared to flagship 1 year older. Otherwise its camera is nothing special.

A 256 gig model would be nice because can never have enough storage.
