September is a month when the Cupertino Giant launches its new iteration of iPhones. As a run-up to the event, leaks are a common place and this year has been no different. Some images of the iPhone 7 Pro/Plus model, which is due in September, have leaked online.
The leaks reveal that the next iteration of the flagship model will have new camera hardware. Much akin to the Huawei P9 and the LG G5, the next iteration of iPhone will have a twin camera setup coupled with a warped antenna line design.
Apple iPhone 7 Rumoured Specs: No 3.5mm jack and mute switch
What is not clear is whether Apple has done away with the 3.5mm headphone jack, since the top and bottom panels are not visible. It may be possible that the pictures leaked are the prototypes of the device. Also, it can be seen that there is no mute switch in the upcoming Apple smartphone.
Apple is notorious for keeping the features of its latest devices under wraps and has been pretty successful in the past. There are rumors that the latest iteration is already in production, and the leaked images are indeed of the next flagship.
Sources within Foxconn, the company which makes the iPhones for Apple reveal that the mass production of the device has already started. The leaks also show that some rumoured improvements have been indeed incorporated. The iPhone 7 Plus is likely to have a 5.5-inch display, which brings it at par to be called a phablet.
