Dual camera setup and smart connector port appear on leaked Apple iPhone 7 Plus photo

The latest leaked image of the Apple iPhone 7 Plus reveals that the device will sport a dual camera setup on the back. This comes a little less than two weeks after someone claiming to work at Foxconn posted about the demise of the dual camera feature for the 2016 version of Apple's 5.5-inch phablet. But that report was immediately followed by others reversing that rumor. Add to that the photograph of the phone leaked today, and it sure looks like there will be two camera lenses gracing the back of the iPhone 7 Plus.

So what will Apple use the second lens for? Unlike the Huawei P9, which uses its second lens to shoot in monochrome to improve focusing capabilities, the second lens on the iPhone 7 Plus will allow the user to employ optical zooming. According to the source of today's leak, both the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and the Apple iPhone 7 Pro will come equipped with a 5.5-inch display and feature a 16MP dual camera setup on the back. The report also suggests that both phablet sized iPhones will feature Apple's smart connector port. This is a magnetic system used on the Apple iPad Pro to easily connect accessories like the Smart Keyboard.

The rumor leaked today states that the only difference between the Apple iPhone 7 Plus and Apple iPhone 7 Pro will be the much higher specs found on the latter. In addition to the two different versions of the 5.5-inch Apple iPhone 7 (Plus and Pro), Chinese phone repair company Rock Fix, which leaked a picture of the iPhone 7's rear casing yesterday, says that there will be two variants of the Apple iPhone 7; one more affordable model will replace the Apple iPhone 6 in Apple's lineup.

Thjanks for the tip!

That's one of the least appealing back sides to a phone I've ever seen.

Let's not forget the iPhone 6 leaks that no one believed.

Keep dodging lololol. By the way, 4/5 of those leaks were either A) Chinese goo-phones lmao B) moch up chassis by random people looking for publicity.

If these leaks turn out to be true, you'll be the one dodging. Heck even long time iPhone users hate this design.

If they are true then they are true lol. Whats so hard to understand? I'm not the one sitting here defending fiction lmao. ESPECIALLY on this f**king website lmfao

And you are the smart one, right? He just said the one in the picture looks least appalling he has ever seen, where believing something came up?

Yes, dual optical zoom please. This is going to be awesome.

It is supposed to be bringing some lossless optical zoom like feature without the weight right? Then it is super awesome :)

12. Kumar123 unregistered

Yup, Super Awesome. Various companies applied various uses of dual camera setup, HTC for better depth of field, Huawei for better low noise photo, LG for wider field of view But if the Apple's supposed feature of optical zoom is true then we are on the verge of another mobile photography revolution. All the flagship phone take photo good enough now that point and shoot are absolute. Lossless zoom feature will allow mobile phone camera to compete with DSLR (I know its a bit of an exaggeration but for mobile photo enthusiastic like me this is the feature I have been waiting for).

You can't have lossless zoom with just 2 fixed focal lengths... It would just be like the LG implementation, possibly with interpolation to mimic the different focal lengths in between those two lenses.

Lossless zoom wont allow smartphones to compete with DSRL. Only with point & shoot cameras.

Not a very good one either. Not a hater but its about time they should stop making improve to the current 6 series design. Its not even that attractive compared to it's own predecessor. Besides its already 2 year now also considering Apple's money and R&D we should expect a better design for a flagship phone. They have the potential but seems like they are holding backkk and reserving all for their 10th anniversary or snthng (smiley with bull's like exhale..!!!!!!)

The money and R&D??? For years Apple should had improved years ago!! It takes till iOS 8 to make a descent size phone?? Even now still lags ram cpu speeds only 2 gb?? Like my other post said, TIM COOK is running Apple to the ground!!!! And Apple users are just starting to see this, go to a Apple Store and 90% are in there for Genius Bar for repairs, just had my MacBook replaced after 5 repairs in 8 months due to a faulty OS X El Capitan, I have faith Apple can do better and they can, they need a new commander in chief... Problem solved

Why must he be an Apple hater? Everyone is entitled to his own opinion. I too find this leaked image UGLY. Especially the dual-camera hump which isn't at the centre of the iPhone, hence causing it to wobble when placed on a desk.

Well all.jPhone have had the camera here and only the early models that predate the iPhone 5 didn't wobble thanks to fatter cases.

A major revamp is necessary in iPhone's design. Seriously the whole 6 series is really unattractive (not ugly) to my eyes. Those 4,5,5S,5SE were extremely gorgeous compared to 6 series. I found many low-mid Chinese smartphones comparable to iPhone's design and they do have a stand like Mi5. (I'm talking about the looks though. Quality wise iPhones are top-notch.) Time to bring something new Apple c'mon...

Apple is more the looks that sell and the name, and people go on the band wagon and quality is not Apple that's why it takes up to two weeks to get a Genius Bar appointment gee sounds like Apple quality so many Apple device issues i went yesterday to have my MacBook replaced after 2 hard drives gave out in 6 months ...... Ya quality and many iPhone repairs?? The last year trying Apple for the first time is my last!!! Surface pro book and Samsung note 7!!! All the way!! I don't hate Apple 100% but Tim Cook is running Apple down into the ground, if Steve jobs was still here he would think twice on Tim taking over...

Repost I do agree with you on the early 4,4s Steve jobs days them were good quality iPhones than my sister still has her iPhone 4 from 2010 June 2010 release and still working perfectly but she's always like Apple but won't buy newer iPhones doe to a laggy current iOS, i myself put my 6S plus in the drawer due to its laggyness and using a LG V 10 my plus was my first iPhone and last i gave it a try but wasn't for me, Apple can do a great overall and have the money like you said, let's just hope so in the near future and I think and hope they do!! My plus is iOS upgradable for a few years the rumors of iPhone 7 pro 256 gb would be up my alley if that pans out true!!
