An iPhone 7 model has leaked prior to launch -- and we've got the details.
The iPhone 7 won’t be released until later this year, but a leak of a possible dummy unit is revealing some fascinating details about the next iteration of the phone.
Various reports have indicated that the iPhone 7 has a near identical size to the iPhone 6S, so clearly Apple doesn’t intend to move away from its traditional size. In addition, the dummy unit suggests that the phone will not have antenna lines on its rear case.
The sketch, leaked by French site NWE, shows that the size of the phone is 5.44 inches long and 2.64 inches wide, which is the same as the current phone.
The new phone could have a larger sensor and a nearly flush camera cutout, according to reports.
The headphone jack will likely be 3.5mm and have a smart connector capability. The phone is expected to be both water and dust proof, and have stereo speakers and wireless charging. It may also have a larger battery.
It’s not clear when the iPhone 7 will be released. Speculation indicates that it may happen in September, but no release date has been announced.
