Alleged Photo of the iPhone 7 Plus Reveals Dual Lens Camera and Smart Connector

Posted March 15, 2016 at 8:11pm by iClarified · 27433 views
A photo allegedly of the upcoming iPhone 7 has been posted by bastillepost. The photo reveals what appears to be an iPhone 7 Plus with a dual lens camera. The lenses are enclosed in one pill shaped cutout rather than two separate cutouts.

As previously rumored, a dual lens camera would allow Apple to bring a 2-3x optical zoom function to the device. Apple is already testing dual-lens camera samples from Largan Technology and other companies. Apple uses image sensors from Sony and is expected to integrate technology from its LinX acquisition into the camera for the iPhone 7.

The image also has three dots above the Lightning port which suggest the smartphone will get Apple's new Smart Connector. The connector is currently available on the iPad Pro and takes advantage of the two-way conductive fabric in the Smart Keyboard. It allows the iPad Pro to provide power to the Smart Keyboard and lets the Smart Keyboard relay each of your keystrokes back to iPad Pro. It's unclear how Apple would plan to use this connector in the iPhone.

Notably, there are no antenna bands across the back of the leaked phone. This falls in line with earlier reports that Apple would simplify its antenna bands to just the top and bottom of the iPhone 7. A previously leaked chassis photo also showed no antenna bands across the back.

Finally, the iPhone 7 Plus pictured appears slightly shorter than the iPhone 6s Plus. It's difficult to tell from the photo if there is no headphone jack or stereo speakers. We'll let you know if any more photos surface. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.

Photoshopped iPhone 6. Case closed. Look at the new leak that came out today. The antenna band is totally different. I don't think it's a 7 though. Has to be the new 4 inch. They gave it a newer refined body and antenna design to tell it apart from a 6. Instead of just making a smaller version of the 6. They're releasing it now because I think they're going to start releasing a new phone every 6 months. 4 inch in the spring for the people that want a smaller phone and flagship larger iPhones in the fall. Releasing a new 4 inch phone with the 7 would possibly take sales away from that model. For the people that want a smaller phone and have been waiting and didn't want to upgrade will now have a chance. It will attract newer customers too that might eventually upgrade to the larger flagship iPhone.

Samdroids laughs at iPhone's innovations but after they laugh they will see it in their Samshit phones. Remember when Apple released the true tone flash after that all jumped in. Look at the phones' flashes now they all have the white and amber LEDs. How about the fingerprint sensor? Before Samshit phones usually slide your finger to open their phones, now they replaced it by pressing it the same as how iPhones did it. I bet after the iPhone 7 is released all will have the dual lens and force touch. Hahahaha! Who's laughing now?!

iPhone can have wireless charging by case or by adding something to insert into lightning, it can have waterproof phone or at least be water resistant like the s7, and there exists better methods than what AS.Samsung does such as ampy that kicks 'wireless' charging to curb. It uses motion power, it can be done anywhere, and it's all done when traveling without a wall outlet.

As much as I love apple , I do think most of the users are isheeps... At least half of my friends who own 6s or plus does not know of the 3d touch system... It pisses me off that they never bother to read what their iphones can do and when I show them they are amazed as if I just discovered America...

I've ran into the same thing dude. Some people I know don't even know half of the features it has. They're more worried about Facebook, snapchat and Instagram. Some may be isheeps but I blame it on plain stupidity.
