With about three days left in between now and the date of the Apple iPhone 7's unveiling, Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities has revealed much about the upcoming flagship smartphones and rounded up facts from rumors and leaks all around. Here is what the most probable specs of the upcoming iPhones seem to be.
The Apple A10 chip will have a clock speed of 2.44GHz and will probably power both the iPhone 7 and the 7 Plus, however, the clock speed may vary slightly on release. The iPhone 7 Plus will be the first iPhone to sport 3GB of RAM, while the regular iPhone 7 will have only 2GB of RAM, like the 6s and 6s Plus. There will also be a dual 12-mp camera setup at the back of the iPhone 7 Plus with one camera sporting OIS and a 6-element wide angle lens, while the second one sporting a narrower 5-element lens. A flash with four LED lights are expected to be featured on both the smartphones.
Both iPhones will sport the lightning jack only and you will need the bundled lightning-to-3.5mm adapter to use your current headphones with them. If the IPx7 certification does indeed make it to the iPhones this year, they will be able to withstand thirty minutes of water exposure up to a depth of one meter. The earpiece itself may also act as an additional speaker and the proximity sensor beside it could be using laser tech instead of LED for the detection. Finally, the Home button may also be just a pressure sensitive icon, instead of being a physical one. Let's hope that the rumors are true as these do sound amazing!
