Leaked photo of the Apple iPhone 7's rear casing surfaces confirming larger rear camera

A leaked photo of the Apple iPhone 7's rear casing has surfaced confirming at least one of the rumors pertaining to the next iteration of Apple's smartphones. Based on the image of the rear casing, the Apple iPhone 7 will sport a larger rear camera with a bigger CMOS sensor as seen on previously leaked sketches, schematics and photos. The 3.5-mm earphone jack, rumored to be set for extinction on the iPhone 7, remains on the device.

According to Chinese repair shop Rock Fix, there will be two variants of the iPhone 7. One will be a base model to replace the Apple iPhone 6, and the other will feature the rear casing seen in the photo accompanying this story. And of course, there will be the larger Apple iPhone 7 Plus. Both models will purportedly offer dual SIM capabilities.

Apple has reportedly ordered 72 million-78 million units of the iPhone 7 for this year, higher than analysts' expectations. The new models should be unveiled in less than three months. And while we are calling the new units the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus, there is a chance that Apple will hold off on using the iPhone 7 name this year, saving it for next year's tenth-anniversary iPhone models. In fact, most of the major changes that many were hoping to see this year are now expected to debut in the 2017 versions of the iPhone.

We all know what this means for S8, dont we? I can predict future.

I think it's an actual casing, but is it a test mule, or what we'll see in September?

I think this will be another S year for the iPhone cuz the rumours have been quite underwhelming

Off topic, but I've noticed since I updated my Note to 6.0.1, sometimes when I scroll a Web page, it just scrolls and never gets to the top or bottom of the page. When I refresh the page, it's fine. This is the first issue I've noticed with Marshmallow. Anyone else having issues? Lying ass trolls need not respond.

Interesting, are you using chrome or Samsung browser? Edit: Both browsers are working fine on my note.

Samsung, it's done it about 5 times.

I freed up 1.3 gigs of cache, we'll see how it goes. Thanks for the tip.

I'm using Chrome browser on my Android N Betta, though when I was on Marshmallow I couldn't recall any complications, scrolls silky smooth from top to bottom and back top again.

That's how it is most of the time. It's not doing it now, but it's done it twice in the last 20 minutes. Not a big deal, as I can easily just refresh the page, but a hiccup non the less. I'm not one who expects a perfect update thank God, I just deal with the issue until it's patched.

I've noticed a few issues here and there on marshmallow, but nowhere near as bad as lollipop. Besides the lack of security updates and 6.0.1 on the Moto X, marshmallow has been pretty good.

You got it on your Note 4 yet?

96. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I don't recall seeing it, but it's been some time since I last touched my Note 4.

I've had a couple apps crash on N beta but haven't seen anything else, and those apps could have just crashed because they weren't optimized for Android N yet. Thus far it's shaping up to be a pretty impressive update.

97. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I figured so. It's usually always a given when it comes to beta software. I liked Marshmallow overall and so far, N is looking to be a good step forward.

Skype for Business simply will not open and Google Photos will crash 50% of the time. I'm sure Photos will be fixed before the full release but it's a little frustrating.

Was it same website ? If so, then the website could've been coded poorly as well.

It's probably all the ads causing the browser to load slower

Thanx bro. I should've done what I did with ios, and wait to update. My iPhone is still on 9.3, my Note was on 5.1.1, which worked great. So far it's only the Web page issue, but I'm gonna detail any I find, and do a YouTube review.

My iOS 9.3.2 is great here, but my MacBook died lol that El Capitan sucks!!!!! Some reason two hard drives in 5 months lucky Apple is replacing the laptop and putting Mavericks back than was great!! But your very welcome let's hope the note 7 has no marshmallow issues ehhhhh but I'm getting it anyway

My next investment is a Gear Fit 2. Tizen looks awesome on it.

Did you ever get the Apple Watch? I remember you being very apprehensive about it. I still cannot justify the purchase of a smartwatch regardless of its manufacturer.
