Japanese schematics hint at third handset from Apple, with a dual camera but no new design. A fresh iPhone 7 leak has reinforced the now widely held assumption that the handset’s form factor will not change dramatically compared to the iPhone 6 generation devices.
The scoop, published in the June issue of Japanese magazine MacFan, appears to show a 5.5ins device and seemingly confirms many of the longstanding rumours surrounding the device. It also puts the idea that Apple could launch three handsets this September firmly back on the table.
nterestingly, if the drawings come true, the iPhone 7 won’t be any thinner than the iPhone 6S and could actually be thicker than the iPhone 6 – it’s tipped to come in at 0.28ins by the magazine. MacRumors says these dimensions go against some of the figures tipped by analysts, including the ever-reliable Ming-Chi Kuo, and that MacFan has got sizes wrong before – but it is a publication which has offered up accurate information in the past.
