iPhone 7 specs and features rumors: 3.5 mm jack may be coming after all, dual camera setup hinted


The upcoming and long-rumored Apple iPhone 7 may be sporting certain features after all, as latest rumors point out that the new iteration of the flagship smartphone from the Cupertino-based company would be having the traditional 3.5 mm headphone jack, despite previous reports saying otherwise.

In a new set of leaked photos, which originated from Weibo, parts and components allegedly for the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were displayed. Curiously, the leaked photos do not seem to be in line with what was repeatedly rumored for the devices for it shows a Lightning port module with a 3.5 mm headphone jack attached to it.

In the past, it was rumored that the upcoming iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus would see the end of the presence of the standard 3.5 mm headphone jack. This was allegedly due to the company seeking to produce an iPhone that is thinner than ever, which could reportedly be achieved through the omission of the said component. The 3.5 mm headphone jack was said to be replaced with a Bluetooth headset that can be recharged straight from the device via the Lightning pin.

Other alleged parts of the upcoming iteration of the iPhone that were leaked in the photos include the hint of an iPhone finally having dual-SIM variants, possibly for the bigger iPhone 7 Plus. The leak also seemingly confirmed the screen sizes for the standard variant and the Plus variant of the iPhone 7 a 4.7-inch display and a 5.5-inch one, respectively. However, the leak was not able to give a hint as to the technology of the display or the resolution that would be used.

The new leak also suggests the presence of a dual camera setup for the iPhone 7 Plus variant and possibly, SanDisk memory chips that can go up to 256 GB for internal storage of the device.

The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus smartphones are expected to launch sometime this fall.
