Apple iPhone 7 dummy surfaces in China, showing thinner body and absent 3.5mm jack


The iPhone 7 might go down in history as one of the most leaked Apple devices ever, considering the rumor mill has been serving its production on an almost daily basis over the past couple of months. Today, we get a very clear idea of how the device could end up looking in practice, thanks to a Chinese leakster in possession of a dummy uniy.

Notable changes that have consistently appeared before can be observed in the footage – the disappearance of the earphone jack, the emergence of a second set of speaker holes, the shallower Home button, and the significantly thinner profile are present. Also note that the "display" shown here is actually printed on paper.

The video shows the purported iPhone 7's back from all sides, matching most the intel that's appeared so far. A bigger camera lens, re-positioned plastic antenna bands, and two colors - Gray and Silver - are shown.

While the iPhone 7 won't introduce an all-new design, it will give Apple the opportunity to perfect its sixth-generation iPhone and give its very successful design a proper goodbye before bringing exciting changes like curved screens, glass backs, an OLED display, and sensor-based Home button to the 2017 iPhone, among other rumored additions. You can read more about recent iPhone-related developments by following the links below the video.

Without 3.5mm jack? These guys of Apple are a bunch of retards which after later place things when other companies already are more advanced, like Samsung, things that Apple fans considere gimmicks but when Apple decide to place these things that Samsung place in their Galaxy flagships a long time ago then Apple is innovative and then Apple decide to make patents of these things for saying that was their invention.

It's because Apple does it right. Take touch ID for example. If something barely works, it's a gimmick!!

I'm not an idiot like certainly you are. I made my first iq test between the 16 a 17 with the help of a clinical psycologist in 1986. And the result was 157 for that don't judge me as an idiot, because you have a weaky brain compared with mine.

You have a 157 IQ, but said "weaky", and didn't capitalize IQ. Damn dude...

Still you didn't understand that the dumb is you, you moron. You are is envious of my intellegence and you don't want to admit that. Typical of the vulgar north american, try to depreciate and desdain of the people of european countries and which have a degree of intellegence superior to their.

You still guess that i'm an idiot with the post i made? You guess that i'm no reason with that post? Please calm down and don't excite yourself. You don't want to see and read the true, because you are drunk and anaesthetized wit the campaign of intoxication of Apple.

@nctx77, You can't expect a new innovation to work perfectly on it's first year of release. The Fingerprint scanner debuted with the Motorola Atrix, in 2011, but it did not have success, because it wasn't reliable, but that doesn't make it any less of an innovation! Apple's Touch ID debuted 2 years after. So Apple had enough time to watch and improve on the Fingerprint sensor's technology, but that doesn't mean Apple "had done it right". Apple literally COPIED! Stop acting like a dummy who has not brain.

No they don't. Touch ID is the worse implementation. Synaptics has fine tuned the Force Touch concept and demos show it to be much better implemented vs Apple's own garbage. Apple does it right? Samsung has a simple antenna concept on its S6/S7 that Appel on the 4/4S had. Which OEM had issues? ONLY APPLE. Compare Apple's one-handed mode to the one on the Galaxy S/Note. On the Note/S, 100% of the windows orginal content is show on the screen at al times, while on IOS you lose 40% of the orginal content on the screen. You realy think that's better? Apple's Touch ID is not better than Samsung's. They are equally as fas. The original fingerprint reader Sasung used which was the slide, wasn't that greta. But Samsung as was other OEM's were in talks to buy the same sensor aApple bought. But Apple bought the whole company which prevent the other OEM's from buying the sensor so Apple ended up with it exclusive. So they all had to find other means. Appel knew the other OEM were going to have it and prevent them from getting it. But the fact is, all companies that make such sensors actually all offer the same tech. But because Apple stole the company and prevent the rest from buying, none of the other OEM could get enough orders placed in short notice. That s why Samsung made their own for the Galaxy S6/Note 5. Apple doesn't always do it best. You claims are as stupid as you are. I have the iPad Pro, I get so sick and tired of it not unlocking when I place my finger on it. I have issues unlocking both my Galaxy and iPad equally. Its accurate 90% of the time. But I sync my Galaxy with my S2. So as long as they are both next to each other, I can swipe to unlock and bypass the fingerprint reader. try that with Touch ID and the Apple Watch...lol

WTF are you talking about? This long ass thesis full of Samsung rhetoric isn't going to change the fact that Touch ID is the better implementation, and has been since it's unveiling.

kiko007, then explain how Apple's implemention is better than the competion.

18. AlikMalix unregistered

I wasn't gonna even reply to his crap. He really believes that Apple does nothing right. And the others eat his crap up like religion. Touch ID has been best than any fingerprint tech I've ever seen or tried. It's been best on 5s. And when android manufacturers caught up and went Apple style from swipe to touch - Apple improved its FP sensor that I don't see the lock screen at all unless I use the power button to wake it.

Because you don't see the lockscreen means Touch ID is faster than Samsung's? When you place your finger on the FP Scanner, Android first of all takes you to the lockscreen for you have a quick glance at your notifications, then into the home screen if your finger is still on the scanner. It was built that way, showing the lockscreen first doesn't mean it's slower than Apple's TouchID. I thought you were better than such an ignorant rant, @AlikMalik

After Apple's successful implementation of fingerprint scanner on 5s pretty much all android manufacturer rushed to use fingerprint scanner on their phones. But their fingerprint scanner was far from good. Reviewers complained about S5, S6, Note 4, 5 slow and imperfect fingerprint scanner. Even veteran walter from theverge said S7's series fingerprint scanner is far from perfect. BTW, looks like the S7 active water test failure turning out to be true.http://www.cnet.com/news/sink-or-swim-samsungs-galaxy-s7-active-drowned-when-we-put-in-in-the-pool/

Do you always believe in c net and rumors??? If someone told you to jump off a cliff would you?? Hmmmmm no comment on that one!! If they said Apple will have a 6 gb ram water resistance and a better screen and a inside overhaul you will be the first fool in line at a Apple Store for days!! Gee that's coming soon too got my paint gun ready!!

You say touch ID on the iPad pro works 90% of the time, same goes for your Galaxy. I will counter that and say touch ID on my iPhone 6s plus works 99% of the time. I'm being 100% honest when I say it fails to work about once a week. iPad pro has Gen 1 FP, that's the same as the iPhone 5s and you say its the same as your galaxy in terms of accuracy , in other words the galaxy has a FP that's as good as one from 2013. That pretty much proves that Touch ID is the better FP and has been since 2013.

Wonder where the 90% accuracy of the iPad Pro's scanner comes from. iPad Pro's FP Scanner is pretty much crap compared to my Note5 (but I'm currently browsing on my Mac Book, runing OS X 10.6).

Apple is a company like any other, note how they didn't speak about 3D touch in their latest show. Yet when it was announced everyone on Apple's side was praising it to heaven. So yeah, just keep that in mind, Apple makes mistakes too, and doesn't always 'do it right' removing jack is generally a bad idea, it is a flexible, adaptable, high quality analog output/input port, and there is no real reason to remove it, especially if it is just to make it thinner, there is really very little reason to make phones smaller, or at least practical reasons that I can see. So yeah, use Apple if it fits you and you enjoy it, but personally I'd be happier if people weren't praising things like it is the one true god and faultless. Goes for all brands.

Are you talking about WWDC2016? That's not a show - it's a conference for developers - for people that make money with Apple. And they did talk about 3D Touch further adding support throughout the OS. But unlike that Chinese brand that showed their implementation a week before Apple showed their finished product - 3D Touch works troughout iOS, all apps, and 3rd party apps. Android still has no support for forcetouch and only recently supports FP sensors natively. The 64bit support is lackluster, still no equivalent to metal, and swift. Does not have a desktop operating system to compliment and fully work with like iOS and Mac. And they're still struggling with updates - it's 2016 for crying out loud - in 2-3 years it will be androids 10th anniversary. Fragmentation is still a huge problem - forget features, just for security and glitch/hardware bugs sake. I'm not hating on android, just want to point out that with everything it's give or take. You trolls turn a complete blind eye to android problems and falling behind and bash Apple for the sake of making your self feel better? Xondk. This is not specifically directed at you
