Possible iPhone 7 unit pops up in leak

In Deals, Tech by Viv0 Comments

The iPhone 7 is still quite a few months ahead, the release date for the handset being tipped for September, yet the rumor mill is turning and another new leaked iPhone 7 photo has shown up. Take this with a grain of salt, as we can’t confirm whether it’s the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Pro or just the iPhone 6S in this photo. Nonetheless, if it is the iPhone 7, it looks like we shouldn’t be expecting any significant design changes, at least not on the back panel.

The leaked photo comes from Twitter and was found, most likely, on Weibo, the Chinese social network. The photo depicts a handset that was edited into being dubiously blurry so that we can’t see the bottom of the phone where the model name is usually written. Suggestively, this is supposed to be an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Pro leak, but that handset very much looks like an iPhone 6S so this might be a false alarm. Nonetheless, it gives us the opportunity to chat a bit about what is expected of the iPhone 7 duo this year.

Analyzing the leaked iPhone 7 photo is quite impossible, because it really looks like nothing has changed. Previous rumors suggested Apple will be renouncing the antennae lines, yet they are still present in this photo, albeit we can only discern the top one. The logo is in the same place and the camera looks the same, although it is impossible to tell whether the lump is of the same size or not. If Apple goes with the same design as its previous handset, it would be quite unusual seeing as the 6S already wasn’t that big of a change compared to the iPhone 6.

There are many rumors flying around about the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro, but there’s also a rather gloomy situation surrounding Apple revenues and sales this year. Apparently, iPhones aren’t selling that well, in as much as Samsung rose to the top of the list when it comes to revenue from smartphones. Many Apple fans hope that the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Pro will revitalize the company and introduce a new design, seeing as the rumor is we’ll be saying goodbye to the audio jack this year. What do you think of this leaked iPhone 7 photo? Are you thinking it’s an iPhone 6S that’s been sensationalized or could Apple be launching another identical phone?


I believe tech and its place in our society is a process that will forever be in development, as long as we look to science. It's important that we keep track of what's going on and what we can access. There are new technologies being implemented everyday, and the more we know, the better.
