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.
