Apple iPhone 7 Design Rumors: No Antenna Bands & Bigger Camera Module
For quite some time, the Apple iPhone 7 has been widely rumored for its killer features and breakthrough design. A recently published report reveals that the upcoming iPhone will remove the unsightly antenna stripes from the back and will sport a bigger camera.Advertisement
The claim by the Cupertino firm is evident in a leaked picture from French website Nowhereelse, indicating that the chassis of the device will be devoid of any horizontal antenna lines, as were found on the iPhone 6s, 6 series. Forbes reports that the antenna bands might appear right on the top and bottom edges of the device, instead of in the middle.
Every new iPhone has an upgraded camera, and this time around the iPhone 7 will have a camera with a bigger module. It was confessed that Apple has upgraded the cameras on previous iPhones, but it will be the first time the tech company will introduce a bigger camera unit. However, this doesn’t mean that the camera will appear more protruding on the rear side of the phone, rather the new iPhone will have a completely flat rear side.
News about the antenna bands and a flat camera unit at the back side of the iPhone 7 surfaced in the media. MacRumors had earlier reported about the new changes, and it also mentioned about a dual-rear camera set up on the iPhone 7.
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo published a note saying that the Cupertino firm acquired the dual camera set up technology when buying LinX, an Israeli company that specializes in the field. By dual lenses, it means that there are double lenses inside the camera- a telephoto lens and a standard wide-angle lens. Both lenses are capable of taking pictures and videos simultaneously.
Meanwhile, there are further reports that the iPhone 7 will be marginally thinner compared to the iPhone 6s and 6S Plus. These two phones are slightly thicker than the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
