Alleged iPhone 7 and 7 Plus specs suggest better battery life and cameras
With the release date just around the corner, Apple is all set to remove the wraps off the next-generation smartphones, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus next month, as per previous leaks. Ever since the first news about iPhone 7 surfaced, lots of rumours, leaks and genuine news have been floating around the Internet for a while now.
Both the handsets are expected to come with Apple’s new A10 chip, which offers about 20-30% jump in performance and reduced battery consumption. Also, previous renders of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus reveal that Apple could ditch the 3.5mm audio jack for both variants and the 7 Plus might be designed with a ‘superior’ dual lens camera. In addition, both the devices are expected to come with an iOS 10 operating system and have cameras with OIS (optical image stabilization).
However, a new report by Twitter user @the_malignant includes some information about hardware specifications. It is recommended that you consider the information with a pinch of salt, as the user has a mixed track on leaks. However, given the previous leaks, many of them do make sense.
The iPhone 7 will feature a 4.7-inch display with 750×1334 pixel resolution. The device is expected to come with 2GB of LDDR4 RAM and a larger battery capacity of 1,960 mAh. Also, the device will feature a 12-megapixel camera with 1/2.6 sensor size, F1.9, and 1.3 µm pixel size.
iPhone 7 Plus
The iPhone 7 Plus (also referred to as the iPhone 7 Pro by some) will feature a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. It will also include 3GB of RAM and have a battery capacity of 2,910 mAh.
As mentioned earlier, the iPhone 7 Plus will feature a dual-camera configuration that will help take better pictures in all lighting conditions. The iPhone 7 Plus/Pro is likely to launch with two 12-megapixel cameras with 1/3 sensor size and F1.9, but the data of the dual-camera system are not yet available.
All those who are looking for a big update this year may be disappointed. Despite its solid number status, this year’s iPhone is widely believed to be an incremental update ahead of a much more significant one in 2017.
Since, 2017 will mark iPhone’s 10th anniversary in the market, Apple may want to celebrate it in style by saving something special for the new iPhone. According to the rumours, Apple’s plans for 2017 iPhone include a massive design overhaul, inclusion of AMOLED display technology, the removal of the home key altogether and much more.
