Apple is expected to announce and release the next generation iPhone about four months from now, which means that we will see a steady flow of rumors regarding the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
New blueprints have been shared by a noted leader Steve Hemmerstoffer, who runs the Twitter account OnLeaks. It is said that drawings came directly from Taiwan-based Apple casing manufacturer called Catcher Technology.
As can be seen from the images, they confirm Apple’s plans to remove the 3.5mm headphone port on both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. However, what is interesting is that these two iPhones will come with numerous differences, which wasn’t the case so far.
The drawings show that Apple plans to use a dual-lens camera as well as Smart Connector, which should be available on a bigger iPhone. The 4.7-inch model will come with a single-lens camera.
It can be also seen that the company will reposition the rear-positioned antenna bands, along with the top and bottom of the phones.
Even though many hoped that the next generation iPhone will come with a redesigned chassis, it seems unlikely that Apple will make such a move. The company seems willing to retain the same overall smartphone design for three consecutive years.
As we previously wrote, the Cupertino-based company is also looking into OLED-based displays, but it is expected that we’ll see this technology implemented in 2017.
