It appears that Apple might be gearing up to release a premium variant for their new and upcoming iPhone 7, dubbed in the rumor mill as the iPhone 7 Pro.
New reports are pointing out once again to the long rumored dual main rear camera setup for the device, as well as the alleged removal of the 3.5mm standard headphones jack, as well as a Smart Connector feature that willif these long running rumors will end up to be truebe the first time for such a feature to make it to any iPhone device yet.
According to new reports in the rumor mill, a Japanese tech magazine called “Mac Fan” reportedly published what was claimed to be a schematics plan for a new iPhone. At first glance, the iPhone seemed to look greatly similar to the design of the current iPhone 6s Plus, with only a few differences that denote an entirely different model. The device was called iPhone 7 Pro.
The device schematics published showed an iPhone device that sports a display measuring 5.5 inches. At the back panel of the device, there is the still protruding main rear camer. Only this time, it was tipped to have a dual camera setup. This feature, as of now, will reportedly be exclusive to the iPhone 7 Pro model. Also, there seems to be no more standard 3.5 mm headset jacksomething that had been rumored in the past not only for the “Pro” variant, but as well as for the standard iPhone 7 releases.
Another new feature that had been tipped by the schematics designand had been shown in leaks in the pastis the possible introduction of the Smart Connector feature. Smart Connector, on the iPad Pro, is used to wirelessly connect a Smart Keyboard to the device to transform the tablet into a hybrid device. However for the iPhone 7, it is expected that the new feature will be used for charging purposes.
The iPhone 7 is expected to be launched sometime this year.
