Apple leak confirms massive new ‘iPhone 7 Pro’

“Question: How many new iPhone models does Apple release each year? It used to be one, then two when Apple launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus,” Gordon Kelly writes for Forbes. “Well now in 2016 it is going to be four.”

“Looking to consolidate his reputation as ‘the best Apple analyst on the planet’ KGI Securities’ Ming-Chi Kuo is at it again. In a research note obtained by MacRumors, Kuo has reaffirmed that Apple will indeed release three models of the iPhone 7 this year in addition to the imminent 4-inch ‘iPhone SE,'” Kelly writes. “Consequently the three iPhone 7 models will be the 4.7-inch iPhone 7, 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus and a new and even more premium model based around (already huge) Plus which some are dubbing the ‘iPhone 7 Pro.’ What’s the difference between the Pro (I’ll go with the name for now) and the Plus? A groundbreaking camera.”

Kelly writes, “In fact, I should say groundbreaking ‘cameras’ because Kuo says the iPhone 7 Pro will use a dual-lens camera system created by LinX, an imaging specialist Apple purchased in 2015.”

    1. And yet another product you won’t buy (or, most likely, can’t afford). Two lessons you haven’t learned thus far, Ron:

      1. You get what you pay for.
      2. Cheap is ALWAYS expensive in the end.

      Good luck to you, and see you at Wal-Mart!

    2. You don’t have to buy one Ron!

      Plus, you are probably too young to understand what an “expensive” computer really means. Think $6K or more for a desktop computer with the computing power of a few calculators. I recall one of the early digital calculators from Unisonic with add, subtract, multiply, divide, a square root button, and a memory going for $320 in the early 1970s.

      The iPhone is a portable supercomputer with a high-res touchscreen display, wireless networking, a great camera, and all-day battery life. I consider it to be something akin to a miracle and a tremendous value for its price. I do not see anyone else providing iPhone quality and capabilities at a substantial discount to Apple’s pricing.

      Find something real to gripe about.

  1. Apple is already king of the mountain.

    They can do whatever they want. They should go micro. A Siri only operated phone that stick to your ear. They could call it the Micro Phone…Ho wait….

  2. You can bet they will also add support for the Apple Pencil in any iPhone that sports the Pro suffix. I want one! But hope one comes in a much smaller size.

      1. Patently untrue, as you well know. You are just trying to rile us up, anonymous idiot. What? You are too stupid to even make up a name, so you post using your PIN?!

        Wasting your time here…far better people than you have trolled and lost. Better to never have trolled at all.

      2. yep, I am one of those people

        after using piece of shit Windows machines, Motorola flip phones….

        I have now settled on Apple. And I am happy.


  3. Yes, finally. I’ve been saying for the longest time that I’d easily pay $1200 for a premium iPhone that can differentiate me from the rich kiddies, alimony moms, and hustlers that all carry an iPhone. These days, even the most expensive iPhone 6s Plus is too easily obtainable for the masses.

  4. “It used to be one, then two when Apple launched the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus”
    Actually, the 5S & 5C were the first two-model release. Gordon Kelly: proudly upholding Forbe’s reputation for slap-dash research.

  5. This new iPhone 7 Pro phone won’t necessarily be bigger. There is a quarter-inch bezel on the top and the bottom of the current iPhone 6 Plus. Apple may have eliminated them.
