iPhone 7 images based on 3D blueprints pop up, show little change

iPhone 7 images based on 3D blueprints pop up, show little change
We may still be some time removed from Apple's annual September event when the Cupertino maker traditionally unveils its new iPhone, but you can be sure that somewhere in China, production has either already begun, or is about to. As we've previously seen, alleged technical 3D models of the iPhone 7 are already in supply, allowing third-parties to make use of them. In this case, a 'reputable' accessories maker close to our colleagues at GSMArena has provided.

As can be plainly seen, and in corroboration with some rumors, the iPhone 7 rendered here is very familiar. The most notable difference is the removal of the controversial antenna bands on the back, lending the phone a rather... peculiar look. This might be just us being used to the iPhone 6/6s look, but we can't help it. 

Other changes include a dual grill on the bottom, which we haven't seen in a while (it used to house the microphone on the iPhone 5 and 5s) and the seeming lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. The former may suggest stereo speakers, but it could obviously also be an effort at symmetry. As for the latter, regulars probably won't be hearing for the first time that Apple might be dropping the jack in favor of its Lightning port. 

Obviously, all of the above is based on renders whose authenticity we simply have no way of verifying. In fact, Steve Hammerstoffer, also know by his Twitter alias @OnLeaks, has already taken up to the micro-blogging service to question their legitimacy. According to the popular leakster, these are based on "old" CAD drawings that are unlikely to be accurate.

Thankfully, given the typical interest in Apple's next iPhone, we're likely to be seeing more and more intel and photos like these trickle down as we get closer to September, so we should know more soon.

iPhone 7 might not be so much different in term of design but I'm sure that it won't be that similar.

Apple!!! King of hype. The new iphone release seems to be boring but somehow, because its apple I just can't get pumped enough.. The power of the media I guess. On a side note, I can't wait for the MOTO Z and NOTE 6!!! The HTC 10 seems to be too boring for my tastes.

I don't think current 6s and 6s plus users will be upgrading to this. I surely won't upgrade if this is how the phone is going to look. No leaks on note 6??? Android is getting better day by day. I never knew switching OS will be so difficult. I want to visit the android side but my iOS apps keep coming in the way. Damn you apple

I agree, if next year's iPhone 8/10 has all the new stuff why upgrade to this? My contract is due up in September and I'll see how the iP7 turns out, I may sell my iP6 and get an SE (I prefer that size because I only use my phone one-handed) or maybe the rumoured HTC 10 mini if the specs aren't gimped. I do hope many do the same to show Apple they need to up their game...

Unless Apple throws a curveball, I'm skipping this year. I'll see what the Note 6 has to offer, and look at an iPhone next year.

Post 8 by Jimrod was great. Being somebody who changes launchers and dialers more frequently than changing shirts, I would not touch anything running IOS with a barge pole. BUT... that does not give me the right to diss on people with a differing point of view

Here are my two cents on mobile tech sites and their reviews... 1. BGR is hands down the most apple biased so called neutral mobile tech site i have come across. They should rename themselves as Apple Insider or something like that. Heck on the day the Samsung S7 was announced, the first 3 articles on their home page was about the iphone 6s. In fact i stopped visiting their site when one of their reviewers said something like this..."As incredibly more pixel dense, color accurate and gorgeous the amoled screen of the note 5 is, i still like my iphone's screen better." and he then went on to declare that the iphone was the winner in the the screen category. 2. I also cannot accept when a reviewer on any site lists the size of a 6 inch phone as a con. When you have bought or are in the market for a 6 inch phone, you know that its going to be big. In fact you prefer that, why else would you have bought one then? Yes if a 6 inch screen phone has huge bezels, then list the bezels as a con. But i am yet to come across a reviewer who lists the king size bezels of any iphone as a con. Frankly the iphones look comical next to any modern android phone with their huge chins and foreheads. Look antiquated.

I will skip this years iPhone and see what the Note 6 offers. Liking what HTC did this year but the screen still to small for my taste. Made a Max version.
