iPhone 7 Features
A report from KGI reveals some last minute info on the iPhone 7 features. Credible analyst for KGI, Ming-Chi Kuo released a pretty hefty detailed document outlining all the new iPhone 7 features. Along with reaffirming everything we’ve already heard, such as the design resembling the iPhone 6s with tweaked antenna lines, the report includes some specific details about certain changes.
Kuo predicts that there will be some upgrades and other changes with the iPhone 7, but because the general design is expected to be similar to the iPhone 6s, “general users may not feel the differences significantly.”
According to often well-informed Japanese blog Macotakara, the iPhone 7 will be available in five colours, including three of the same colour options of the iPhone 6s and two black options.
“We expect the iPhone 7 to come in piano black, dark black, rose gold, gold, and silver. Only the piano black model will have a glossy finish. Given high production barriers, large-storage models may have first priority in adopting piano black casing in the initial stage.”
iPhone 7 Is Expected To Include:
New A10 chip from TSMC that could top out at 2.4-2.45 GHz
Storage capacities of 32 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB on both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
Improved IPX7 water resistance , similar to that of the original Apple Watch and making the device suitable for splashes and showering.
No headphone jack, with Apple supplying both Lightning Ear Pods and a Lightning to 3.5 mm jack adapter in the box.
Pressure-sensitive click-less home button to benefit water resistance.
Wide color displays in the same sizes and resolutions as the current iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
Dual-lens rear camera on the iPhone 7 Plus, which will increase Apple’s costs by about $40. This could make the iPhone 7 Plus more expensive than the iPhone 6s Plus. Both lenses will be 12-megapixels.
Upgraded rear camera flash with four LEDs (two cool and two warm). In addition a new ambient light sensor for better image quality.
Possible upgraded proximity sensor shifting from LED to laser. This is for faster response and greater recognition distance, as well as potential gesture recognition.
FeliCa NFC support in models sold in Japan.
