Excited for a glimpse of the iPhone 7? Don’t worry Jimmy Lin has got you covered.
The Taiwanese pop star has gotten a reputation for leaking upcoming Apple iPhones before they are officially unveiled. This time Lin appeared in public with the fabled device on hand.
According to Forbes, the pop-star has been photographed holding what appears to be an iPhone 7 Plus. Aside from the Apple logo slightly covered by his hands, prominently displayed is the phone’s dual camera set-up.
As to be expected the phone holds a striking resemblance to its predecessor. This is in line with the numerous leaks that have been circulating on the web.
Unfortunately, all the photo shows us is the phone’s aesthetics and not even all of it. Fortunately, if there’s anything we can expect from Jimmy Lin is that a leak of the phone’s full features will be coming out soon.
While each leak has some aspect of self publicity for the ex-teen idol, his track record screams that we trust him. Lin never missed an opportunity to divulge details about the latest iPhone models before Apple even does.
This all started back in 2012 when he posed with an iPhone 5 on his Weibo page before the phone was released. He followed it with an iPhone 5C in 2013 and iPhone 6 in 2014.
Apple employees in Hong Kong even confirmed the authenticity of Lin’s iPhone 5C. The pop-star apparently took a short break last year, opting not to leak details about the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6 Plus.
According to Phone Arena, this could be due to the two phones being almost identical to the iPhone 6. Now he has returned to the scene with Apple’s latest model, which features major changes from its predecessors.
This includes a lack of a headphone jack and an increase in storage space. Expect more details about the phone when Apple officially unveils it next month.
For now keep an eye on Jimmy Lin and his social media accounts. The next leak regarding the iPhone 7 could be just a few days away.
