The Apple iPhone series has become one of the most recognized smartphones on the market, and Apple consumers over the years have become some of the most loyal. One thing that you can say about an iPhone is that you’ll either love it, or absolutely hate it. This can be said with each and every iPhone that has come out, and the same can be said about the upcoming iPhone 7.
The Apple iPhone 7 will undeniably be a beast of a phone, and it’s pretty easy to see why. Apple is intending on something huge with the upcoming release that will appeal to current Apple fans and is likely to bring in many new one’s. With two and maybe even three models expected, those patiently waiting for the iPhone 7 release will have much to look forward to.
The current iPhone 7 rumors have two and possibly even three releases scheduled. Of course the standard model will be the most popular that will sport an amazing screen, but the competing Phablet as the iPhone 7 Plus is looking to garner even more attention. As consumers continue to look for something bigger and better, Apple has done a great job with the much bigger Apple iPhone Plus series. We are also hearing rumors on the concept of the smaller, plastic, and cheaper iPhone coming back which just may be the iPhone 7c.
Those loyal to the iPhone series have come to expect many things from the numerous innovations from Apple over the years, and the 7 aims to impress. With a lightning fast processor, 4k OLED display, and an Edge variant with a new sidewall display in the concept of the iPhone 7 Plus.
For all there is to know on what is sure to be one of the best smartphones of 2016, the following Apple iPhone 7 preview; rumors, specs, features, price, and release date info will do just that.
iPhone 7 Camera – 21 to 23 MP Rear Camera, 5 MP Front Camera, 3D, and Optical Image Stabilization
One of the biggest rumors on the iPhone 7 shows that it will feature a new bi-lens property. The two lens camera will give the 7 the ability for DSLR-quality imagery which will ultimately create a much clearer picture. This will also mean optical zoom and a much better lighting effect with poor light conditions.
We have also heard rumors that Apple is looking at integrating a 3D camera effect. 3D camera technology will certainly be an upcoming trend as many 2016 smartphones are rumored to feature the same camera technology. Also, we have been hearing conflicting rumors, but likely the iPhone 7 camera will feature either a 21 or 23 MP camera.
iPhone 7 Processor – A9 Processor and 3GB RAM
Courtesy of Samsung, the iPhone 7 specs will feature a new A9 processor. The smaller, but much more efficient A9 chipset will be a huge step up from the current iPhone, and will allow many of the new features in the camera and the display.
iPhone 7 Screen – 4K 4.8” Sapphire Screen Display
New Apple rumors suggest the iPhone 7 will get a slightly larger screen as we’re fully expecting to see a 4.8” Sapphire screen. The Gorilla glass that was seen in previous models will be a thing of the past as it’s believed to be replaced by the more durable and higher quality 4k Sapphire display.
Also rumored is a sidewall display that’s reminiscent of the Galaxy Edge series. A recent patent filed by Apple would suggest they are intending on using one of the sides and would incorporate more onscreen options then previous models. There’s been no word if the sidewall display will be featured in either the iPhone 7 or a 5.6” iPhone 7 Plus only, but either way, it’s expected to be a huge hit.
Apple iPhone 7 Specs – 2400 mAh Battery, Curved display, and 3 Internal Memory Options
As of this time, there have yet to be any confirmations out of Apple on the iPhone 7 specs, but there have been numerous rumors. It’s virtually a guarantee that Apple will be looking to beef up the battery power, especially considering the nature of mobile devices. With what once was a luxury to own a smartphone, it has now become a way of life for all of us.
iPhone 7 rumors surrounding the battery depicts a 2400 mAh battery which will be much more juice than the latest iPhone. Integrated with wireless charging and a quick charging feature, users will benefit with more battery life and a much faster charging aspect.
One of the mainstays of Apple smartphones have been the somewhat of a square appearance. The iPhone 6 introduced us to a more curved display, but the curves will be much more pronounced in the 7. Also, three internal memory options will be present along with expandable memory for an additional 128 MB of memory.
Apple iPhone 7 Features – Touch ID Display, Waterproof, and Wireless/Quick Charging
Apple looks to be packing it all in when looking at the iPhone 7 features. With a new Touch ID sensor, it looks like they Home Screen that we have come to know will no longer be needed. The fingerprint scanner is rumored to be featured on-screen using the Touch ID sensor which is also believed to be much more responsive.
Waterproof features were once reserved for upgraded versions of smartphones, but now, it has become more of a standard feature of premium versions. Both versions of the iPhone 7 including the Plus is rumored to feature a waterproof design. Also, wireless charging and quick charging will allow users to charge the phone by placing it directly on a charging matt without being plugged in. The quick charging feature will enable chorded charges to give you a 50% charge in as little as 25 minutes.
