“There’s been much talk of the iPhone 7 possibly arriving in three distinct variants, only the biggest and best of which was set to receive a new dual-camera system from Apple,” Paul Monckton reports for Forbes. “However, these rumours were recently scotched by serial leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer of Nowehereelse.fr.”
“Tweeting as @OnLeaks, Hemmerstoffer revealed detailed CAD documents showing just two models, a standard 4.7in iPhone 7 and a 5.5in iPhone 7 Plus (or perhaps ‘iPhone 7 Pro’),” Monckton reports. “Now, famed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the original source of the three-model iPhone 7 rumour, has also revised his predictions to include only two models, rather than three in his latest note to investors.”
