Another day, another iPhone 7 rumor and also another twist to the never-ending mystery that is Apple’s upcoming smartphone lineup. It seems like the closer we get to September and thealleged September 7 release date, the further we end up digging ourselves in an overwhelming mess of rumors.
Today brings yet another confusing piece of the puzzle – a few shots of what appears to be a 5.5-inch iPhone 7 with a dual-camera setup, POGO pins on the back an to add a finishing touch to the mix – colored in black. Naturally, this leaves us a little perplexed. If we stick to the original theory of three iPhone 7 models – the alleged “Plus” and “Pro” being of the 5.5-inch variety, then this would definitely be the highest tier device in the mix.
So far so good, it all works out, right? However, last we heard and saw yesterday, there appeared to be only two versions of the handset, the bigger one equipped with the dual-camera, but no the POGO pins. And if quantity is anything to go by, the day before that we got pretty much the same information form yet another source.
In light of this, we thought it better to concentrate on the photos themselves and what they do appear to showcase with confidence, whether legitimate or not. This is not the first time we are hearing about the possibility of a black color option, as well as other new finishes, likeDeep Blue for that matter. So the sight of a dark iPhone isn’t exactly shocking. However, we must say it looks incredibly stylish, complete with little details like the shade of the antenna bands and we really hope this rumor turns out to be true.
Another thing we can clearly see is the absence of a 3.5mm jack on the bottom of the unit and a total of two grills. Given the current situation and influx of leaks, we are far from the idea that this could definitively settle the arguments over the audio jack or the stereo speaks, but it is yet another small grain of proof for one of the scenarios, if anyone is still keeping track.
