iPhone 7 poses for the camera in two colors mere hours away from official announcement

Mere hours ahead of Apple's big 2016 unveiling event, Vietnamese website TechSign.in has leaked a handful of photos of the smaller iPhone 7, showing off the new camera bump, LED flash, and other parts from up close. So, let's take a detailed look at the photos and glean whatever info we can from them.

First off, we have a “Piano Black” and what seems like a blue iPhone posing for a shot that has rendered the shiny backplate of the latter a solid black patch with little to no detail. Not to worry, though, for we have made a version with adjusted brightness for improved visibility! On it, you can clearly see the glossy black finish on the back of the device, abundant in fingerprints and smudges, as can be expected.

The second and third photos are close-ups of the SIM card slot and SIM card tray. There is nothing out of the ordinary as far as the slot goes, but things get a little more interesting when the tray is examined up close. There seems to be a rubber seal around its outer facing edge, which would suggest water-resistance of some sort, perhaps something akin to the Apple Watch's IPX7 rating. In other words, if the iPhone 7 does indeed receive such a certification, this would make it okay to splash a bit of water on the phone, or use it in the rain, for example. Directly submerging it under water, however, would not be recommended. Yes, this includes taking long, relaxing showers with your shiny new iPhone, or taking it for a swim. Anyway, moving on.

The third photo we have for you today, is a close-up of the camera bump and new flash that will supposedly rely on four LEDs — two with warm, two with cool light — to improve color balance when taking pictures in low-light situations.

It very well might, I mean, if they removed the 3.5mm headphone jack in order to make it thinner then it's quite possible. Or maybe they removed it because they want to push BlueTooth or lightning connected headsets and it has nothing to do with the thickness of the device.

To answer your question, any phone can bend or break if you apply enough pressure so yes it can infact bend.

If you keep it happy it won't.

I hated the glossy back on the Androids and I have the feeling that I will hate it on the iPhones - black mat for life!

There is a dirty rumor going around saying that the gloss black is actually a plastic iPhone 7C.

The logo is barely visible. It will upset the Fanboys at school who like to show off that Apple logo.
