Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus biggest leak so far: new antenna lines, dual camera on the Plus


The Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are expected to get officially unveiled in some two months in early September, but this hasn't stopped pre-release prototypes to surface right now in abundant quantities.

This latest Apple iPhone 7 leak shows what we've seen and heard before: the major design changes in the iPhone 7 family come in the form of redefined antenna lines that now run along the top and bottom edge, as well as a differently designed camera unit (and yes, a dual camera on the iPhone 7 Plus!). An interesting new addition in the iPhone 7 Plus is also a three-dot magnetic connection that could bring interesting new use cases for Apple's gadget.

In terms of physical size, it seems that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will keep the 4.7" and 5.5" screen sizes, as well as retain similar physical size and dimensions.

At the same time, the most exciting changes to the Apple iPhone 7 family are likely to come in the form of new hardware, software and features, rather than in the form of a new design.

So far, while Apple clearly has a hard time controlling all these leaks, the company has succeeded in keeping those new features that will make the iPhone 7 special a secret.

I thought the dual camera might look decent, but I'm surprised to say, I really, Really don't like it. Something about the width of the opening disruptes the design asthetic. Hopefully it will look better in real life. The non-plus versions's camera looks much more tastefully done. On the other hand, I like how the antenna bands look now. The 6/6s bands look extra stupid compared with these.

Before apple , samsung got also a big camera bump on thier previous galaxies why nobody complained about it? when apple does then its a big deal for this fanboys.

Apple should just increase the thickness for two reasons. 1) To eliminate camera bump. 2) Increase battery capacity.

Lots of Apple users want that, sadly Apple isn't known to listen to their loyal customers about suggestions.

apple will refuse that because: 1) they cant brag about how slim their new flagship are 2) more battery capacity = more expensive, thats a big no for apple, lol.. and the smaller battery they give, the more they can sell battery case

I think the deep blue version looks 1000x better than the other versions.

Are you insinuating Apple copied Meizu? If you going to troll you can surely do better than that...

To apple design team: for the past 10 years you guys spent every 2 years in order to design a new phone. Now 2016, you spent 2 years again but you give us the same old design 2 years ago with bigger bump and bezel. You are the best Apple.

The only big change would be the operating system, because it is a copy of android and touchwiz features. As I have said in the past, Apple is a software company. Hardware is all built by others such Samsung, LG, Sharp, and etc. Apple just designs the casing.

You clearly have no clue as to what you're talking about. Over 75% of Apple's profits come from.....wait for it....HARDWARE SALES!! Just because you outsource production, that doesn't make you a "software" company.

Except that like LG, There's a huge chance that Apple will implement truly useful features into their dual camera setup. I loved my One M8. It was easily among my top five favorite phones, especially considering it was the Google Play Edition so I got some stock Android goodness as well. But the one flaw it had in my eyes was just...the camera. The photos it took were alright at best, and the depth sensing feature was very much a hit or miss.
