Despite some persistent rumors, notorious leakster Evan Blass has said that this year will see two new iPhone 7
models, not three. The two models expected to be unveiled this year, the Apple iPhone 7
and Apple iPhone 7 Plus
, are code named "Sonora" and "Dos Palos", according to evleaks. He insinuates that there will not be a third model. Photos that were disseminated yesterday allegedly showing images of the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 7 Pro
contained several red flags indicating that they were fake.
On the back of each unit was the "s" logo. This year's model is not supposed to have the "s" name. Thus, the presence of the logo on the back of what was supposedly the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus
and iPhone 7 Pro
really gave away the fact that the picture was not legit. At the moment, it's not clear whether the 7 Plus
model will be just a super-sized version of the 7 (as it was the case with the 6 Plus and 6s Plus), or if it'll resemble what we're seeing in the rumored 7 Pro model, which is said to carry a dual-lens camera and additional hardware connector dots on the back.
In any case, it seems fairly certain that the antenna lines on the back of both models have been moved to the top and bottom edges of the handsets. Additionally, neither device is expected to sport a 3.5mm earphone jack. We should see both models officially introduced in September.
