All the eyes are currently hooked on to Apple’s Wednesday event where it is going to unveil its 2016 flagship devices iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Over the past few weeks, a plethora of leaks and speculations have cropped up about the iPhone 7 ranging from its design to its lightning connector earbuds to its camera. But a report from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has surfaced highlighting some major features of the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus that we just can’t ignore even though it comes just a couple of days prior to the launch of the device.
This report highlights the various specs and important features of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus which is sure to interest our readers. One of the major revelations that had yet not surfaced is that iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will employ a True Tone display that is being currently used in the iPad Pro for more vivid and wide-color imagery.
As for the hardware under the hood, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be powered by Apple’s own A10 chipset coupled with TSMC’s M10 motion coprocessor which uses a new ‘InFO’ process. The processor will be clocked at 2.4GHz and is said to provide a huge upgrade in processing over its predecessor A9. 4.7-inch iPhone 7 will sport 2GB of RAM while the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus will sport a larger 3GB of RAM. In terms of internal memory, the new iPhones will come in three storage variants: 32GB, 128GB and 256GB.
As for the camera specs, the iPhone 7 will sport a camera with a larger sensor than the one in iPhone 6s. But it is the iPhone 7 Plus which interests us in this department as it would sport a dual camera setup (12MP+12MP) on its rear. While one of the lenses will be a wide-angle one, the other will be a telephoto lens. It will also sport other rich features like optical zoom. There will be an improved flash with four LEDs (dual-tone) as well for both the iPhones.
As far other specs are concerned, the report confirms that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will not sport the 3.5mm jack and instead come with a lightning earbuds and will come with a lightning to 3.5mm adapter. Other interesting features include an IPX7 certification which means that the iPhone 7 will be almost waterproof. You can put it in 1m deep water for about 30 minutes and it still won’t be affected. The 3D Touch experience and Touch ID have also been improved.
Apart from these, another big news that comes is that the new iPhones will come in two different colours: Dark Black and a glossy Piano Black (in place of the old Space Grey Colour) apart from the regular Rose Gold, Silver and Gold colour variants. Thus there are five colour variants at the offering, although Space Grey colour fans would be a bit disappointed.
We don’t need to wait much longer as the release event is just a couple of days ahead and even I’m as excited as you must be right now to know everything about the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
