Case allegedly for Apple iPhone 7 confirms dual camera set-up, removal of earphone jack


Remember the name Sonny Dickson? He is the lad from Australia who received a bit of notoriety by leaking the colorful casings of the Apple iPhone 5c back in 2013. Dickson has helped Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy obtain what is purportedly a case for the Apple iPhone 7. While not as revealing as leaking the actual handset, there are some rumors that the case does confirm, assuming of course that it is legit.

Right away, you can see that with its extra large rear camera cut out, this case was made for an iPhone with a dual camera setup in the rear. Recently, a dual camera module allegedly made for the Apple iPhone 7 Plus surfaced. Even if the component is legit, we are still unclear if all versions of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be endowed with two cameras on the back, or if the dual snappers are reserved for a special variant of the device.

And the questions continue. Will the Apple iPhone 7 also sport the two cameras on back, and if so, will that also be limited to a special version of the device?

As it so happens, the leaked case might answer some of the questions. Yes, it would appear that at least one variant of the iPhone 7 will offer a dual camera set up. This could be related to the technology that Apple picked up when it acquired Israel's LinX. That company produces smartphone camera systems that allow users to snap SLR quality photos and 3D images on a smartphone.

A large cutout on the bottom of the case could be for the Lightning port, which will be used on the iPhone 7 to plug in earphones or headphones. As you probably know by now, Apple has apparently decided to remove the 3.5mm earphone jack from the next iteration of the iPhone. The case also reveals that the power and volume buttons will essentially remain the same size and shape as seen on the Apple iPhone 6s, and will stay in the same location.

Dickson also provided a case for the Apple iPhone SE and while an Apple iPhone 5 does fit in it, the volume buttons don't match the cut outs on the case. And that points to something that we've suspected from the start, namely that the iPhone SE will keep the design of the Apple iPhone 6s, but with that smaller 4-inch screen.
