An alleged leaked render of the smartphones, via uSwitch.com, showed no sockets for the accessories, which reportedly confirmed the tech company’s decision. Additionally, the renders/blueprints also implied that the Plus edition would sort super dual lens camera while the regular-sized version might have single lens snappers.
Much similar to Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s, the next-generation devices would still equip protruding cameras. But they will have no metal rings around their lenses.
To differentiate the two smartphones, the Cupertino tech giant might install a Smart Connecter on the rear of the Plus edition while the standard-sized counterpart would not.
Furthermore, the leak reportedly gave strength to previous rumors that the Plus version would support a new set of dedicated accessories. But what could be disappointing for the music lovers was a seemingly confirmation of the fact that the company might opt to sport their flagship smartphones with only one speaker, as opposed to what has been speculated to be a dual speaker set-up.
The dimensions would also be the same: iPhone 7 to have 138.30×67.12×7.1mm and iPhone 7 Plus with 158.22×77.94×7.3mm.
Meanwhile, KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo believed that the Plus version could possibly sport a dual back camera. According to him, the California-based firm chose to feature it in order to maintain their lead in producing high-end smartphones, 9 to 5 Mac stated.
Lastly, Apple’s decision reportedly came after seeing the consumer’s response to Huawei’s flagship phone, Huwaie P9, which was equipped with the said hardware. Ming-Chi Kuo said the dual-camera system would become a “must-have feature for high-end” mobile devices.
