iPhone 7: Definitely maybe!

While most of us in the tech circles are resigned to the fact that Apple's iPhone 7 will bring in the same look and feel as the last two iPhones, a few new pictures of the handset have been revealed, and boy does it look good.

A new close-up of iPhone 7 has emerged in China and it looks very much like the ones we've seen so far.

We've reported before that while iPhone 7 will look a lot like iPhone 6s, the chassis will still undergo some changes like redesigned antenna lines and dual camera slots in iPhone 7 Plus. The new picture, though bright and detailed, basically corroborates what we've been believing so far. However, there's no way to tell if the picture is in fact genuine.

If you are pretty satisfied with the existing design and feel of the iPhone 6s, the lack of significant improvements shouldn't worry you much. However, the handset is set to feature significant internal improvements which should bring its benchmark scores closer to existing flagships like Samsung Galaxy S7 and HTC 10.

The Wall Street Journal recently revealed that Apple will keep 32GB as the base storage in iPhone 7 and will also launch 64GB and 256GB variants for those with high storage requirements. The report also said that iPhone 7 will not feature a 3.5mm headphone port, will be thinner and water resistant and will feature 'substantial camera improvements.'

As per 9to5Mac, apart from featuring dual cameras, redesigned antenna lines and a very similar design as iPhone 6s, iPhone 7 and 7 Plus may also feature capable A10 chips with faster CPUs and GPUs, 3GB of RAM, storage option of 256GB and will be the first iPhones to be completely waterproof. In terms of camera setup, a leaked image of a rear case of the upcoming iPhone 7 Plus suggested that the phablet may feature dual rear cameras.

Macotakara, a Japanese tech news website, has also reported that Apple may not include the 3.5mm headphone jack in iPhone 7 but will ship the handset with 3.5mm ear pods with lightning adapters. 'At Computex Taipei 2016, many manufacturers showcased their new Lightning audio adaptors, and it seems there has been rumors that the EarPods with Remote and Mic to be included with the new iPhone 7 series will still come with its own headphone jack as usual, and that a Lightning headphone jack adaptor will also be included in the package,' said the website.
