iPhone 7 release date, specs: stereo speakers, no 3.5mm jack


Image renderings of the upcoming and long rumored Apple iPhone 7 recently found its way on the internet. While they showed colors of the device that are unofficial, it was claimed that the physical design shown will be how the iPhone 7 will look like when it gets launched.

According to a report by GSM Arena, a “reputable source” had given the site a set of 3D image renderings of the upcoming iPhone 7. The 3D image renders are said to have come from a smartphone case manufacturer, giving additional sense as to how they could have had the knowledge prior to it being announced by the Cupertino-based company.

Based on the image renders that were shown, it appears that the iPhone 7 will see some of the physical design aspects changed. Also, there are some features that have been changed, just like how a lot of fans and users have been long hearing about.

First off, the antenna lines on the back panel now seem to have been moved to the top and bottom portions of the device. Additionally, the main rear camera seems to still have the slightly protruding design.

There also seems to be two grills on the bottom part of the device. The presence of the two openings might hint of the coming of stereo speakers for the device, the report said.

Most interestingly is the absence of a 3.5 mm standard headset jack. The removal of such a feature has long been, and the hint on the new renders seem to have a strong indication that fans and users might very well see the new iPhone without the headset jack.

Apple is expected to release the iPhone 7 at the upcoming WWDC 2016 event.
