Your next iPhone may be everything you wished the iPhone 6 and 6s (and Plus!) were.
According to a new rumor, the iPhone 7 (and Plus!) will lose the rear camera bump along with the antenna bands that go across the rear of the device.
A new era of tech events has begun
We’re back in New York this November for the 4th edition of our growth-focused technology event.
The bands will instead stop at the end of the curvature, and continue down the lower edge. Mac Rumors, citing a reliable source for this news, created a mockup, which you can see below.
The camera module for the iPhone 7 is said to be smaller, which will allow Apple to make it flush to the device. It’s not known if we’ll get a megapixel hike or the rumored dual-camera setup.
It’s also not known why the bands would be removed, though there has been speculation the iPhone 7 will be waterproof; that could be why.
The overall dimensions of the iPhone 7 are believed to be the same as the iPhone 6 and 6s (and Plus!), so your existing case may work just fine — but the ridge protecting the camera could be unnecessary.
