Latest family portrait once again shows a trio of 2016 Apple iPhone models

Latest family portrait once again shows a trio of 2016 Apple iPhone prototypes
Last week, we showed you pictures of both the front and back of what allegedly is the 2016 Apple iPhone lineup. The prototypes in the photographs include the Apple iPhone 7, Apple iPhone 7 Plus and the Apple iPhone 7 Pro. An iPhone 7 Pro would seem to make perfect sense. It earns that name by offering the smart connector port just like the one found on the Apple iPad Pro, and would come with a dual camera setup on back.

But not too long after the pictures went public, highly regarded tipster Evan Blass (you might know him by his @evleaks Twitter handle) sent out a tweet stating that there will only be two new iPhone models released this year. Blass says that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus carry internal code names of "Sonora" and "Dos Palos," respectively.

Today, a new photograph was found on the Weibo page of @KK, showing a family of three 2016 iPhone units. The phones in the picture are allegedly prototypes built for companies that manufacture iPhone accessories. This allows accessory vendors to have product available for the latest iPhone models immediately after they are launched. Other photos surfacing today on the Weibo site showed the iPhone 7 Pro sporting the dual camera modules. The phone also posted sans the 3.5mm headphone jack on the bottom of the phone.

Will we see Apple introduce two or three new iPhone handsets this year? We won't know for certain until the new models are unveiled later this year. Referring once again to Mr. Blass, the unveiling should take place on September 12th with the actual launch taking place on September 16th. Earlier today we told you that sources involved in the packaging of the iPhone say that the 2016 models will be known as the Apple iPhone 6 SE.
