Rumor claims Apple will launch a 5-inch iPhone 7s with vertical dual-lens camera
New reports from China indicate Apple has taken some interesting decisions regarding its upcoming iPhone models for 2017. Although we're not yet sure how many iPhones Apple will launch next year, the latest information revealed points to at least three with model numbers D20, D21 and D22.

They are likely to be announced as iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, but the market name of the third model, which is supposed to be a high-end iPhone, is unknown for the moment.

Well, it appears that a mid-sized iPhone 7s could be unveiled next year, one that will include a 5-inch display. This would be the third variation of an iPhone to be launched in 2017, after rumors mentioned 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models could be in the works.

Sources inside Apple's Taiwanese supply chain claim that this 5-inch version will pack similar specs as the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus variants.

Another interesting piece of information suggests the 5-inch iPhone will pack a dual-lens camera on the back, which will be arranged vertically, unlike the iPhone 7 Plus' camera setup that features a horizontal configuration.

Unfortunately, it's unclear whether or not the other two models, iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, will feature the same vertical dual-lens camera arrangement.

If they change the screen size It won't be called iPhone 7S. Still we might know that something is coming and not much else. But the iPhone 7S will be great for sure. Leaving the platform as it is and adding a bigger battery and more efficient 10nm chip is the upgrade of upgrades.

^ My sentiment too. That looks like HTC is having a hand in the development of the upcoming iPhones.

They need to give the SE a refresh to 4.3-4.5" and maybe bump the 4.7 up to 5", thats alot smarter than having three all around the same size

A 4.7 and a 5 inch version? No explanation for that other than madness.

Ok guys, let's rotate the camera module with nanoscopic sensor, overclock the SoC a little bit and call the phone iCr@p 7s LoL.

' it's unclear whether or not the other two models, iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus, will feature the same vertical dual-lens camera ' Nothing unclear here. There will NOT be iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s vertical dual-lens camera. The whole point of the S models is, not to change anything, because of the profit.
