The hands-on video shows what appears to be a dummy 4.7-inch iPhone 7 against the current generation iPhone 6s. A new camera, antenna setup, and Lightning port can all be observed.

The Apple rumor mill continues to churn out more alleged leaks and images of the iPhone 6s successor. It was only a few days ago where all four color options of the iPhone 7 were leaked, but now a hands-on video has surfaced from an anonymous Chinese source comparing an iPhone 7 to the current iPhone 6s.

The video shows only the back of the iPhone 7 until about 2 minutes in where the front can be seen, but its screen suggests that this is likely a non-functioning dummy model meant for display in brick-and-mortar stores. Higher quality images of the smartphone next to the iPhone 6s have appeared on nowhereelse.fr showing just minor differences between them. The bulging rear camera and rearranged strips suggest improved camera features and a redesigned antenna as previously rumored. The Volume buttons and Mute slider appear to be unchanged.

Perhaps more notably, the iPhone 7 model is lacking a 3.5 mm audio jack and the Lightning port on the bottle appears to be covered in a new black coating. This may simply be because it is a dummy unit, but previous rumors suggested that the next iPhone could be water and dust resistant with IP certification to better compete against the Galaxy S7 series.

As for the larger 5.5-inch Plus model, there have only been poor images of the unit so far. Both models are expected to launch this September with very similar overall designs to the current iPhone 6s. In fact, existing rumors are suggesting that Apple may launch the refresh as the iPhone 6x and have the "proper" iPhone 7 launch next year with a near borderless OLED display.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
