“Over the weekend, a pair of photos purporting to show the rear casings of both the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus appeared online,” Yoni Heisler reports for BGR.
“Originally spotted by Nowhereelse.fr, the images are largely similar to previous leaks we’ve seen over the past few weeks, with the unsightly antenna lines that plagued both the iPhone 6 and 6s thankfully moved towards the side,” Heisler reports. “What’s particularly interesting about the latest iPhone 7 leak, however, is that the photos appear to suggest that the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 model will receive an impressive camera upgrade. While we’ve seen no shortage of rumors pointing to all of the snazzy and advanced camera technology Apple is planning to grace the iPhone 7 Plus with, the most recent iPhone 7 leak reminds us that Apple’s 4.7-inch iPhone 7 may also have a substantive camera upgrade itself.”
“As evidenced by the photo below, the area for the camera sensor on the iPhone 7 is markedly larger than what Apple employed with the iPhone 6s,” Heisler reports. “That being the case, if Apple can leverage some of the camera technology it picked up when it acquired LinX back in April of 2014, it stands to reason that the iPhone 7 camera will boast superior and compelling camera performance all across the board.”
