Although no official statement is released by Apple regarding release of iPhone 7, but various rumors are there in various websites and many people are taking about the new iPhone in various forums. Apple’s iPhone 6S was very similar to iPhone 6 apart from 3D touch technology, and still now 6S is the best version of the Apple’s smart phone.
It is expected that iPhone 7 will come up with a new design, new features, greater battery life, and many more. It may also have a pressure sensitive home screen button, and water proof design.
Release date and price
Most probably the new iPhone will be available at Apple’s retail store from September 2016. The schedule is expected to remain same because earlier versions of this product were also released during the month of September. But there is a controversy regarding release date because some sources said that it may be released earlier also.
The price of the new model is expected to remain same as of 6S or there may be slight increase in price. But it will not vary much from 6S. The price of a single unit 16 GB will remain around $649 and the box may also contain Apple’s headphones.
How the Designing is done
The iPhone 7 is expected to have a different look from iPhone 6 and 6S. The phone might have a slim build design with full metal body, water and dust resistance designing, no antenna lines, new LCD display, 3.5 mm headphone jack port, a larger camera, better touch screen sensitivity for wet fingers.
The iPhone 7 is expected to have a sharper screen with increased resolution and edge-to-edge display. Apple may provide a 4K display also, because some of its competitors like Sony and Samsung is already proving 4K display. But there is also a doubt regarding 4K display, because iPhone 6S did not supported even 1080p display.
The screen options will be 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch and it may also feature OLED display. Apple previously told its supply chains that in next models they may use OLED display. And it is very unlikely from Apple to switch to AMOLED display. Experts believe that AMOLED display will be provided in iPhone 8. The 3D touch technology will be there in the new model also. The edges will be designed in such a way that the screen does not get affected if the phone falls from hand.
Camera and battery
The old 8MP camera was replaced in 6S with a new 12MP rear and 5MP front facing camera. It is very likely that Apple will keep the same type of camera with bigger size lens in iPhone 7. But it may have few added features like optical stabilization, wider angle shot, and dual lens snapper.
The battery was an issue with iPhone 6S, but the iPhone 7 is expected to have a more powerful battery which may be slightly larger in size compared to earlier models.
Rumors suggest that iPhone 7 may come up with a powerful hexa-core A 10 processor and iOS 10. There will be a 2GB RAM just like 6S. The phone may have new features like wireless charging, smaller headphone jack (2mm), and pressure sensitive home button.
