Apple iPhone 7 render includes ceramic back, Super AMOLED screen and waterproof design
Some rumors just take a long and winding road to get here, and the latest dispatch about the Apple iPhone 7 came from China with a stop over in Korea. A render of the next iteration of the iPhone reveals a number of new features and materials that will allegedly be employed by the new model. While we do suggest that you take this with a healthy amount of NaCl (that's salt, by the way), the next iPhone is scheduled for major design changes following 2015's "S" year (Apple iPhone 6s, Apple iPhone 6s Plus).

Among the changes to the device listed on the render, is the use of a Super AMOLED panel. If this is true, it would certainly be a surprise since Apple is not expected to make the move to an AMOLED screen until 2018 at the earliest. Reliable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has gone on record as saying that the switch to an AMOLED screen won't take place until 2019

Another change calls for a new ceramic back, and the removal of those ghastly antenna lines. The latter have become as unsightly to iPhone fans as panty lines are to women, and a separate report last week revealed the elimination of the antenna lines for the iPhone 7. The render also removes the 3.5mm headphone jack, as previously rumored, and shows that Apple will improve the speed of Touch ID. Other changes will be seen in 3D Touch, and the handset will have a new metal frame.

The rear-facing camera will remain 12MP, and the device's battery will fill up faster thanks to a quick charging technology. And for the first time, the iPhone will officially be waterproof.

Considering that the render was produced to show off all of the rumored features that we mentioned, you shouldn't expect the final product to look like the image that accompanies this article. After all, we are still some seven months away from the unveiling of the phone. Having said that, you might recall that on the last day of March 2014, images of the Apple iPhone 6 were leaked by a Foxconn employee. And while we couldn't confirm it until months later, the photographs of the iPhone 6 that were included with the story were legitimate.
