Apple is scheduled to launch iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus in India on October 7. The new Apple iPhone 7 handsets will be available via online retailers and Apple authorized retail shops across the country from 7 PM IST. Hence, you need not have to wait in long queues like in the US for early morning purchase.
The main attraction of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is the elimination of the traditional headphone jack. You will find lightning port connector instead of the headphone jack. However, to avoid disappointment Apple is providing a Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter with each phone inside each product package.
iPhone 7 specifications
On the specifications front, the iPhone 7 features a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with a resolution of 750×1334 pixels. The phone offers a pixel density of 326PPI with a wide color gamut. The iPhone comes with the latest Apple A10 fusion processor coupled with the M10 motion coprocessor.
While the rear camera features a 12-megapixel sensor with a f/1.8 aperture and a six-element lens. Moreover, the camera also includes features such as optical image stabilization, a Quad-LED True Tone flash, and sapphire crystal lenses cover.
You will be able to shoot 4K videos at 30fps and FHD videos at 60fps. Talking about front-facing snapper, the iPhone 7 features a 7-megapixel resolution with a capability to shoot FHD video recording.
iPhone 7 Plus specifications
On the other hand, the iPhone 7 Plus flaunts a 3D-touch enabled 5.5-inch Retina FHD display with a pixel density of 401PPI. Moreover, the iPhone 7 Plus is equipped with a wide color gamut including an improved battery.
The main USP of iPhone 7 Plus is the addition of 12MP dual cameras on the rear. However, one sensor features a wide angle lens camera with a f/1.8 aperture. If you look at the other sensor, it offers 12-megapixel telephoto lens camera with a f/2.8 aperture.
Apple has infused OIS into both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Previously, the OIS feature was made available only in iPhone 6s Plus. Moreover, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are protected against dust, splash and water with an IP67 rating. However, Apple has clarified that the company will not provide warranty if your handset gets damaged due to water.
Apple also released wireless earbuds named AirPods. They are available in the US. We expect the Cupertino-based company to release AirPods in India also within the next few months.
