iPhone 7s Plus dummy unit captured in live pictures shows its shiny glass back side
iPhone 7s Plus dummy unit has been captured in live images. One of the smartphones that will be announced by Apple in September, the iPhone 7s Plus has a glass back instead of “standard” aluminum.
The overall design of the iPhone 7s Plus is not much different from the current model, although we aren't offered a look at the front side of the flagship.
The glass back comes in line with previous reports claiming the iPhone 7s and iPhone 7s Plus will feature wireless inductive charging, which will allow users to use a charger pad instead of a Lightning cable to recharge their phones.
The glass back is meant to help make this new wireless inductive charging possible without having to add holes in the battery cover. However, since the glass casing is much less efficient at dissipating heat than the traditional aluminum, Apple is expected to add a new component in the form of a graphite layer to shield the 3D Touch sensor.
