Apple's latest tech baby, the iPhone 7, will likely be officially unveiled in Cupertino on September 7th. Because the internet is incapable of patience, a KGI Security analyst issued a note over the weekend that explicitly detailed a number of the new features we'll see when iPhone hits shelves.
- New True Tone displays like the iPad Pro range, with laser based proximity sensors for faster response times
- 32GB, 128GB and 256GB storage tiers will replace 16GB, 64GB and 128GB
- 2x 12MP dual rear camera limited to iPhone 7 Plus, uses 1x wide angle and 1x telephoto lenses
- Upgraded ambient light sensors on both new iPhone cameras for better low light shots
- Camera flash LEDs doubled from two to four with warm and cool colours
- 3.5mm headphone jack removed
- Lightning EarPods and a 3.5mm to Lightning headphone adaptor included in the box
- Second external speaker and integrated amplifier for louder, richer output
- Basic IPX7 water resistance – both phones can withstand splashes and full submersion for up to 30 minutes. Not quite Galaxy S7 level (one hour+), but close.
- 2GB RAM for iPhone 7, 3GB RAM for iPhone 7 Plus
- Next generation A10 chipset sees CPUs hit 2.45GHz clock speeds and 20-30% performance gains
- 3D Touch 2.0 sensor with more distinct haptic feedback
- Home button replaced with non-clicking touch sensor with haptic feedback
- Antenna bands removed from the back of both models for cleaner look
- Two new colours: dark black and piano black (latter in limited quantities for 256GB model); space grey colour option ended
Okay, Apple super-fans. Grab your tents and supplies and just get in line right now.
