Attention tech geeks and connoisseurs, one of the most exciting times of the year is only a few months away! Apple is expected to reveal the new iPhone 7 in September and as per usual there is already a ton of buzz surrounding the release. Based on the current predictions and mock designs, here are some of the up-to-date sneak peeks of what’s to be expected!
1. Dual Lens Camera for Quality Photos
Think your Instagram game can’t get any better? Well with the rumored dual lens camera it can! Not only is it expected to yield SLR high quality shots even in low-light conditions but also take your photography expertise to a whole another level with 3D images! Capturing your life through the lens is expected to become a whole new experience, are you excited yet?
2. Missing Headphone Jack
In the new iPhone 7 design, it is very likely there will be a missing headphone jack and we are not exactly sure how to feel about that just yet… However, in compensation to what seems like a minor inconvenience, Apple is expected to implement twin external speakers to improve the sound quality of the device. Nonetheless we’ll still have to transition to wireless headphones or forever carry around an adapter. What are your thoughts on the matter?
3. Top and Bottom Antenna Lines
According to the latest predictions, it is expected for the antenna lines to be shifted from across the back to the top and bottom of the phone. While it is a minor change, it might actually be one of the most noticeable physical changes of the new model!
4. Pressure Sensitive Home Button
This time around Apple is not only ditching the classic headphone jack but also their iconic home button! This signature feature, which truly does take a lot of excess space will be transformed into a “pressure-sensitive button that provides feedback to the user via a vibrating haptic sensation rather than a true physical click”.
5. Water Resistant Feature
Forget that bag of rice you’ve been using to salvage your phone from water damage and get excited for the first waterproof iPhone! According to a few reports, Apple has been working with a new compound material that repels water in order to create diving and underwater shooting software. Exciting things to come, my friends!
6. Plethora of Storage
Rumors say that iPhone 7 will be offered with a minimum of 32GB of storage, meaning you will no longer have to deal with the pitiful 16 gigs. The only downside of this is that we have to pay the price for this luxury. You win some, you lose some huh?
7. Greater Power and Efficiency
Aside from the design and storage changes, the new iPhone will be more powerful and efficient than ever. It’s predicted to come with an upgraded processor called the A10 chip, which is only appropriate for the next generation smartphone!
What are your thoughts on the new iPhone and most importantly will you be purchasing it?
