Leaked diagrams reveal that the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus will be slightly thicker
Diagrams allegedly revealing the measurements of the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus surfaced today, revealing that the upcoming new iPhone models will be a tad thicker than the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus. While the iPhone 6s measures 7.1mm thick, the leaked diagram of the iPhone 7 reveals it to be 7.2mm thick. And the iPhone 7 Plus will also be 1mm thicker at 7.3mm, according to a second diagram.

The height and width of the iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 both measure 138.3mm x 67.1mm. The height and width of the iPhone 6s Plus and iPhone 7 Plus both measure 158.2mm x 77.9mm. Again, the only difference in size between last year's and this year's models is the additional 1mm in thickness that will apparently be found on this year's handsets. Apple users are hoping that the extra mm in thickness is the result of a higher capacity battery.

The diagrams also show that the iPhone 7 Plus will feature a dual camera setup, while the iPhone 7 will carry a single camera on the back. And it appears that the iPhone 7 Plus will have a Smart Connector port on the rear. This will allow it to sync with the Smart Keyboard used on the Apple iPad Pro. It isn't known if Apple plans on producing other Smart Connector accessories designed specifically for the handset.
You can check out the diagrams (which include the rumored measurements), by clicking on the slideshow below.

Thanks for the tip!

Thicker yet still with a camera bump, design genius from Jony Ive right there... Of course these are just leaks, but all the leaks seem to be tying together pretty well. Love that my preferred size (4.7") is left with a crappier camera and no smart-connector on the back, I realise Apple want to put all the good stuff in the most expensive model but I'll certainly be moving away from them if I'm paying a premium for lower spec just because I don't want a f**king phablet.

I'm sorry, is it still 2014? I didn't know people still cared about camera bumps which exist on practically every single phone these days. Please complain about something relevant if you're going to be such a biased troll.

I've owned iPhones since the 3G you bellend, I'm often called an iSheep etc by the morons here. Never owned an Android phone. As someone who uses Apple products I'm allowed to criticise them as well as blindly praise - the design has been going backwards since the 5 (and, coincidentally the death of Steve Jobs). I do care about camera bumps because I don't like using cases and it was never an issue until the iPhone 6.

That's the problem of most people here; if you say anything remotely negative about Apple, even if you are an Apple user, you will be called either a biased troll or a fandroid. Clearly that AppleVersusAndroid guy doesn't know you LOL

Yeah, it's things like the camera bump that actually bother me BECAUSE it's Apple - part of what you pay a premium for is the design and that design has been slacking lately. I do honestly think Steve Jobs was a perfectionist about those kinds of details, he didn't always get it right but it's the little things that make the difference and Jony Ive doesn't seem to be as good without someone looking over his shoulder.

I agree. Honestly, I'm not Apple fan or customer, but a dissapointed Windows phone user - not fan. If Apple made little less rounded phone, something like iPhone 5 design with metal back and color it black, not gray or silver, with iPhone 6s camera performance or better, I'll go for it and buy. 5'5" screens are too big for me too. Something between 4'7 and 5'1 is perfect, but - definately in deep black.

I share your opinion here, I was certainly no Jobs fan but I can't see him having let things like that fly. It's clear their products aren't what they once were and if the rumours of these next ones prove true it's an even bigger departure... I may even get one! Hahahaha

For apple only one dimension exists, they just focused on thickness.

I would say the bump is fine. What sucks is the camera isn't in the middle. When you put the phone down, if the bump was in the middle the phone was be evenly balances vs lifted to one side. It also just looks bad. Sony does this too and so do others. When I watch takes pictures, they try to off-center themselves to compensate for the cameras location. Also the camera looks so small, probably because it appears Apple doesn't add any fancy optics on its lenses. Be nice if they did. I too hate cases, probably because most of the iPhone ones look fully. But if you can get a nice clear one that actually added to the look of the phone. Like the ones Samsung makes for the S6/7 edge where it's clear and covers the back and grabs the phone only at the corners, so that the phones own design stands, then the cases wouldn't be so bad.

Camera bumps = more chance to break or damage camera.

How? Unless you're dragging your phone like an ape across jagged rocks I don't see how you can possibly damage your phone unless you're A. Careless with hundreds of dollars of technology. B. Ignoring the fact that smartphones aren't built to be tossed around like a frisbee.

My biggest wish for any smartphone today, but I honestly doubt Apple Will pursue that until their stock price is in the toilet.

Are you kidding, in 0.1 mm thickness?

This wasn't true with the 6S and 6S Plus, which were thicker and yet had smaller batteries.

thats because of 3d touch

That is correct.

But the battery lasted hours more due to more efficient hardware and software in the 6s/6s+

The 6S Plus is only a dual core, yet according to PA'S battery tests, it only last equally as long as the Note 5. Shouldn't a phone with less hardware and features last longer than a phone with more hardware to push, heavier software to push? So I do see that as being so efficient. I mean, show me a car with a 4 cylinder that burns more gas or as much gas a car with a 8 cylinder. Now to be far, it is certain that the 14NM chips are certainly less power hungry vs 28NM. Also in fairness the Note does have a larger battery. But it's not that much larger. On a phone with similar specs as the Noye, that extra almost 300MAH only adds up to about 20-30 extra minutes of usage. So I would say the Note 5's hardware is far more efficient into that it can do 10 times as much , manages to last nearly 9hrs on a full charge.

As usual techie, you left way too many gaps in your logic and made way too many leaps for anyone to even bother straighten your half truths and lies. I bet you know exactly what you're doing and its getting old, to be honest.

Unless you're pointing out I said something wrong, I must have been right. Moving along now... A car with a 50 gallon tank and 4 cylinders, should burn less gas than a car with 8 cylinders and the same size take. RIGHT? So if you car with 2 cylinders is burning just as much gas as my car, and my take is only slightly bigger, than that means something is wrong with your car.

Right, 4.7" screen size is my preferred size too don't see a reason to upgrade from 6s as of now. May be when it's launched we'll get to know if it has some features which make it a worthwhile upgrade. I thought may be they will reduce bezel size to make phone more compact like most of other flagships.

Only problem is android is doing this same thing and it pisses me off. Watering down smaller phones so people buy the bigger and more expensive ones.

In 0.1mm how much mAh can u add? Quite funny though if they hope such a thing from apple who just knows to trim down battery as much as possible. Even Samsung learnt some lesson from people disliking their approach for triming down the battery but some companies never listen to the people. I know most of the apple users want more mAh than slimmer iphone

6. AppleVersusAndroid unregistered

Wasn't the battery trimmed down on the S models of the 6? And my 6S+ gets fantastic battery life, better than my Note 5 and hasn't declined at all over time, unlike my Note 5 battery which noticeably lasted less and less.
