iPhone 7 rumors: New leaked render shows new materials, features


With the upcoming new version of the Apple iPhone 7 expected to come sometime around the month of September, the rumor mill had been hot in the past few weeks. Now, according to latest reports, a new image rendering of the new iPhone allegedly revealed the new materials that Apple is said to be using for their new iteration of their smartphone series.

According to a report by Business Korea, an image render of the alleged new iPhone 7 leaked online and seemed to show a few interesting changes.

The leaked render suggested that Apple might very well be using a Super AMOLED display technology for the iPhone 7. To recall, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo previously stated that Apple will not make use of the Super AMOLED display technology until sometime around 2019.

As for the physical design, the information the leaked render showed went in line with what other previous rumors suggested. A waterproof body is expected, along with a ceramic-made back panel casing, complete with a metal body frame. The all-new 12 megapixels iSight camera was also shown to be flat just like what was hinted at by previous rumors.

Also, a new 3D Touch technology was shown, as well as a faster Touch ID technology, and the new A10 processor. The removal of the classic standard 3.5 mm headset jack was reiterated by the new leaked image. A new fast charging technology was also hinted. It was previously reported that Apple may be working on a “cutting-edge” new fast charging technology, though there had been no further reports about that.

Other rumored features of the iPhone 7 include a premium variant for the bigger iPhone 7 Plus, that was reported to have a dual camera set up, a first for any Apple device.
