Potential iPhone 7 leak shows frame packed with four speakers, new flash alignment

Compared to the leak we just shared with you earlier today, there are two prominent differences. The new look for edge-hugging antenna lines is again present (if a bit difficult to see with this odd color scheme going on here), but those edges appear to house grilles for a quad-speaker arrangement – just like on the new iPad Pro models.
In addition to the extra speakers, this shell also moves the rear camera's flash down below the lens, instead of the side placement we're used to from existing iPhone models.
Both those changes make for intriguing ideas, but could either be real? Those speakers look like a tight squeeze, especially up by the phone's camera – but could maybe those close quarters be precisely what's responsible for that flash realignment?
Considering how far this find strays from the popular trend of recent leaks, we're not getting too invested in any of what we see here without some additional confirmation. But then again, Apple could do a lot worse than to seriously overhaul the iPhone's speaker arrangement; is this one change worth making?

Ooh...no headphone jack but in return stereo four way speakers...not a bad trade off if you ask me.

Better than without, but the best would be the speakers plus the 3.5mm jack. Why do we need tradeoffs, why can't we have it all? Also, remember the current iPhone has two speaker grills, but only one speaker. This could mean two speakers, which is still better than one. If it's even real.

You can't have it all because apple knows what's best. If this does turn out to be real I think you've hit the nail on the head though; two speakers not 4 as I cannot see there being room for one so close to the camera so it may just be an opening for speaker located elsewhere with fancy acoustic channelling

That censorship reminds me of something.

That is great to see high end smart phone with 4 speakers. I hope Samsung to do something like that with Note 6

Samsung really needs to do something about the sound quality on the Galaxy phones because it is awful.

I dont know which render is correct. Some have the flash on the side of the camera and this one has it on the bottom of the camera. All i can say is that everything we have seen until now is total bulls**t and we should wait for about a month for the original leaks
