Schematics for Apple iPhone 7 reveal it to be slightly smaller and thicker than the Apple iPhone 6s
Schematic drawings of the Apple iPhone 7 reveal that the next iteration of the iPhone will be slightly thicker at 7.15mm. That is slightly more than the 7.1mm thickness of the Apple iPhone 6s. The diagram also confirms that there will be no 3.5mm earphone jack on the iPhone 7. That could mean that there will be enough room for a larger capacity battery to be stuffed inside. Or, it could indicate that the Apple iPhone 7 will be waterproof. Removing the earphone port means that the phone has one less opening that could suck water into the unit and fry the device.

A comparison between the iPhone 7 and iPhone 6s from the side shows the new placement of the antenna as the tell-tale lines are on the upper edge of the phone only. The camera on the upcoming model is larger in size, and overall, the iPhone 7 is a little shorter than the current model,

We recently got to see a couple of renders illustrating what the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus will look like based on current rumors. As usual, we expect to see the real handsets unveiled by Apple in September, with a launch shortly thereafter. Both models will be powered by the A10 chipset and the iPhone 7 Plus could get a bump up to 3GB of RAM. In addition, the larger model could come with a dual camera set up in back with the second camera offering optical zoom capabilities.

I guess that rules out a minimum 5 inch display. Bummer.

The SE fulfills that purpose.

He means 5" MINIMUM, as in slightly larger display than the current iPhone, which they could have easily fit in the body of the current model with those huge bezels.

no thanks. had LG G2, bezels are too thin, accidental touches happen often. i prefer front-facing speaker, rather than razor-thin bezels.

True. You do need some bezel. They could trim the top and bottom some. If they ever intergrate the home button into the display then bezels will probably shrink.

4" is not 5".

No front firing speakers. Damn it Apple, I want those speakers facing me. At least they will be universally unlocked. My body is ready.

I prefere to pay half the price of an iphone and get more for my money. then i can have it unlocked for a small fee.

What he meant was iPhone has all bands and same phone works on CDMA and GSM.

Schematics for Apple iPhone 7 reveal it to be slightly smaller and thicker than the Apple iPhone 6s as well as similarly ugly.

Another day another Apple sponsored article as always. Phonearena is getting boring now, may consider looking elsewhere...

Again and when Phonearena posts an article like (This could be our first look at the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 6 Edge!) and (Samsung Galaxy Note 7 edge ( Note 6) tipped to have dual cameras, iPhone 7 Plus - beware!) its a sponsored Samsung article?

Exactly... People are blind to their own bias.

no matter what PA does, people will always complain.

Phone arena is biased toward apple first then Samsung. So ofcourse they will put 20 time more articles for both than for others brand.

Apple does have about 25% of the market share some would expect at least 25-30% of the articles to be about Apple, but for Samsung, the practically push out over 30-50 models each year and those even come with variants and editions, you can never ever finish talking about Samsung, as for the other players, they are pretty much dead, for example, HTC, they just pushed out HTC 10 this year and that's it, Sony pushed out 3 models while the others also pushed out 1-3models, not to mention their puny market share. I don't expect Phonearena to write articles about something people less use or aren't interested in. Yes, maybe enthusiast like us would like a broader field of articles, but a lot of the viewer dont really care I guess.

I think PA is trying hard to differentiate the iphone 6s and iphone 7...!! Damn!! 0.05mm could be gone in dimensional tolarance itself!! Its literally no change!! Physically u will never feel this dimensional difference any wr in ur life!!

I think all tech sites outside the manufacturer's own should always list product dimensions at the biggest point - to say the iPhone 7 is going to be 7.15mm thick is bulls**t because the camera bump makes it at least 8.1mm. Same for all other phones with "bumps". I can't say I've got a 15" waist because that's what my ankle is can I? It may drive manufacturers to actually put more effort in rather than making something flat except for bumps all over the place... It's a small point but it bothers me.

22. marorun

Agreed. Make it 8.1 mm thick all the way and put bigger battery! :)

23. Jimrod

Posts: 1605; Member since: Sep 22, 2014

Exactly. It's what most people actually want, some will disagree (fanboy types) but from forum comments and people I talk to the vast majority always want better battery life and have never asked for a thinner phone... The iPhone 3G was 12.3mm and people loved using it! :)

that huge camera hole is intriguing to say the least... cant wait for what Apple can fit in that tiny chasis

LOL, what tiny?

It does not show that the antenna bands are on the upper edge only, it's just the only one with a closeup because it's showing off the camera, the side shot clearly shows a lower band as well...

I guess Apple finally invented other two dimensions than thickness.

Trolling aside, I think it's a very good move from apple to improve screen to body ratio than focus on thickness.
