More rumors on the iPhone 7 claim a final design more similar to the current iPhone 6s than initially anticipated.

The supposed rendering and back cover of the unannounced iPhone 7 could all be fake as the source has not been explicitly verified. Nonetheless, the leaks do show that the upcoming iPhone flagship may not be all that different from the current iPhone 6s in terms of design and appearance.

According to the source, the length and width of the upcoming iPhone is expected to measure 138.3 x 67.1 mm, which would make it virtually identical to the iPhone 6s. The image also suggests that Apple may be moving the antenna from the back to both the top and lower ends of the smartphone due to criticisms of its current designs. The rendering shows that the rear camera lens will no longer be flush with the case but will protrude slightly. If older rumors prove true, then the higher-end iPhone 7 "Plus" or "Pro" SKU will make use of dual rear cameras while the "standard" SKU will only have a single rear camera.

As for the Smart Connector and headphone jack, these latest images do not contradict earlier rumors. The dummy cover shows a three-pin connector near the bottom of the pack that look similar to the ones on the iPad Pro used for external accessories and keyboards as previously reported. Unfortunately, the angle of the image does not explicitly show whether or not the 3.5 mm audio jack will be present.

Apple recently posted a drop in iPhone sales in its latest earnings call, particularly in China where the Cupertino company has been losing its grip. An official reveal of the new iPhone is expected this coming September.

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.
