Only iPhone 7 Plus to feature dual camera

Only iPhone 7 Plus to feature dual camera

The iPhone 7 is set to reverse the iPhone 6S’s growth in thickness in a big way, with Apple making the phone thinner by removing the headphone jack being one of the most prominent rumours surrounding the new handset.

Apple has a history of aggressively removing ports it deems obsolete and it seems as if the industry standard 3.5mm port will be taking an early bath come September.

But what will these drastic measures result in? According to NDTV, a report suggests that a thickness of anywhere between 0.2ins to 0.25ins is on the cards – down from the 0.27ins thickness of the iPhone 6S.

Considering that the world’s slimmest smartphone – the Vivo X5 Max measuring just 0.18ins thick – does have a 3.5mm headphone jack, you’d be forgiven for thinking Apple’s rumoured move is an unnecessary one. However, not all of the space vacated by the departing port is to be put towards style.

The company could use the new space to fashion a larger battery, or alternatively, as some rumours suggest, a speaker will find its way into the bottom left-hand section of the phone for a vastly improved setup.

Elsewhere, different aspects of the phone have been under the microscope, following MacRumors obtaining a research note by Wall Street investment firm Drexel Hamilton.

The most recent report, backing up the word of reliable Apple analyst and leaker Ming-Chi Kuo, relates to the camera hardware.

For some weeks now, rumours have swirled that Apple will introduce a dual camera of sorts on one of the iPhone 7 handsets, with speculation varying from it being standard on every version of the next flagship to being limited to a new “iPhone Pro” model.

According to the note, fans should expect dual cameras on only one Apple handset – the likely 5.5ins iPhone 7 Plus.
