iDrop News purports to have received 'exclusive information from a source with intimate knowledge of Apple’s manufacturing facility', dispatched by Benjamin Geskin. Some of the details contradict many of reports we've been hearing over the past few months.
The new device is said to feature a vertical dual-lens camera, possibility for better depth of field when used horizontally within an AR/VR headset. Additionally, there's allegedly a dual-lens camera setup on the front of the device; likely for 3D sensing capabilities.
Their source claims that rumors of a glass back are incorrect.
Apple’s current iPhone Edition prototype features a ‘metal’ back plate. Apple’s decision to switch to metal over glass was authorized due to the tendency glass has to shatter when dropped.
The site also claims that the Touch ID sensor will not be embedded into the display; rather, it will be moved to the back of the device similar to how it is on many Android devices.
