Since the start of this year, many rumors concerning the next year’s Apple iPhone are now swarming the internet. Announcements concerning the next year’s flagship iPhones are usually made every September of the year. However, rumors about the so-called ‘Potential iPhone 7/7s’ are now being leaked since March. The truth is, due to the fact that there are lots of rumors out there, experts are now mostly confused whether the rumors are true or not.
The All-glass iPhones
Most experts still see that the glass display of previous iPhones is way much better compared to the present ones. Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known and respected Apple analyst had suggested this one more than two months ago. According to him, the all-glass design will be done to the next year’s iPhones as a part of the company’s tenth anniversary.
In addition to that, John Gruber, a well-respected Apple Watcher had shared on his podcast that the next year’s iPhones will also have an edge-t-edge display aside from having an all-glass case. According to his sources, it is also speculated that the Touch ID Sensor or the Home Button will be integrated into the iPhone’s display itself. If this is the case, it’s safe to assume that the glass display will be somewhat made of very good scratch-free glass (most experts dream of having that ‘healing glass’ display technology by LG, though). Supporting CAD images concerning that plan are also displayed on some social networking sites such as Weibo, therefore making most experts think of this possibility.
Experts are quick to point out that, if the rumors are true, Apple will somehow release two iPhone 7 versions, the first one having a 4.7-inch display while the other one has a larger 5.5-inch one. Since most of them haven’t heard any news concerning the increase in screen resolution, experts assume that the 4.7-inch variant will have a 1334 x 750 pixels resolution, 326 ppi screen. The 5.5-inch variant, on the other hand, will also keep its 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution 401 ppi screen. It is also speculated that the better connectivity features must be the result of switching from Qualcomm to Intel chipsets itself.
In addition to all of these, the headphone jack will surely disappear and will be replaced by Lightning-based headphones and earbuds, a new A10 processor and the most loyal 2GB RAM. And most of all, the 16GB variant will likely to disappear for good.
