Apple iPhone 7 photo leak shows edge to edge screen, but is most likely faked
If a picture alleged to show the front of the Apple iPhone 7 is possibly faked, why even bring it up at all? Because there is still a chance that the picture is a legitimate photo of the next full-sized iPhone. And if it is real, it would appear that the screen on the Apple iPhone 7 will feature an edge-to-edge display.

While this is the first leak showing what is supposedly the front of the iPhone 7, there are some indications that the image has been photoshopped, or has been altered. The top and bottom bezels are heavily pixelated, and the line separating the screen from the bottom bezel is not straight like it should be if the picture were legit.

On the other hand, if all of these artifacts are due to the picture being a low-res image, then there would be a chance that this is a real photo of the next iteration of the iPhone. As a result, we are passing it along to you.

According to connected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, the  next big redesign of the iPhone will take place in 2017. That year, we could see the iPhone sport an AMOLED screen and a rear cover made of glass, which harkens back to the Apple iPhone 4. The "Plus" version of the iPhone that year could carry a 5.8-inch screen.

We still expect to see some changes later this year with the iPhone 7, such as the removal of the earphone jack which could leave more room inside for a larger battery. The A10 chipset will power the phone and there could be a dual camera setup on the back. One hoped for change which apparently has been scrubbed, would have added a waterproof design to the iPhone 7.

Regardless of the fact that these pics could be fake, Apple better make something like this... The new 6 and 6S look just like a cheap Chinese Mobile... The bezels are just too bloody thick, and I don't know why, But the overall shape doesn't scream EXOTIC or at least SPECIAL... 4.7" iPhone 6 feels almost as big as a Huawei P8 Lite to me... Those bezels must have to go, just like this 'allegedly' leaked snap... But that's just my personal humble opinion. G'Day!

The top and bottom bezels on the 6s plus definitely need some serious weight loss because they are way to big. The sides are already pretty narrow but I can see the iP7 having an edge to edge screen for real.

Agree man, xiaomi looks cooler for half of the price but when you compared both i think iPhone is overall better. Even i believe Samsung learn a bit from xiaomi. I never hate plastic, but latest Galaxy device after S6 and above looks gorgeous.

I wouldn't be surprised if the iP7 really does have an edge to edge design, the edges on the 6 are already pretty narrow.

I wish just OEM would look at some of these amazing concept phones, pick one and make their next flagship after it.

I don't think, IMHO, Apple will go for edge to edge and regardless the Bezels will stay as that is what gives the iPhone its Iconic look. I think we will see the i7 go back to the look of the 4, and 4s Glass and metal again. it will be larger with a 4.7 screen making it look some what elongated. If not it will just be a thinner version for what the 6 and 6s are now if the remove the headphone Jack.
