The iPhone 7 Plus could come in a shade of blue, at least according to a mockup of the device displayed in an on the internet video.
The mockup is not a actual iPhone but rather a physique, created by a developer of wireless headphones named Besound, that is supposedly primarily based on the specs for the actual point. YouTube account Unbox Therapy received the mockup and took us on a video tour to highlight what are anticipated to be crucial adjustments from final year's iPhone 6S.
Reports have recommended that this year's iPhone lineup would sport only modest enhancements and that subsequent year's model would be the a single to introduce some killer new functions. But in the face of shrinking iPhone sales the previous two quarters, Apple nonetheless wants to jazz up the iPhone 7 with sufficient enticements to convince shoppers to give it a shot.
The most striking function is the blue tone for the iPhone 7 Plus mockup, a colour selection that would be a very first for Apple. We then get a peek at other possible adjustments that have been pointed out in earlier reports.
The video shows dual-camera lenses, which reportedly would pop up in the iPhone 7 Plus but not the iPhone 7. From there we shift to the antenna lines, which have been moved from the back of the physique to the sides exactly where they would be significantly much less obtrusive. Subsequent on the tour are the 3 dots on the back that make up the Wise Connector, which can transfer information and energy among the telephone and such accessories as a Wise Keyboard.
The video then segues into a modify that has been noticed as each excellent and negative.
The mockup reveals a dual speaker, which would be a very first for the iPhone. But the added speaker would come at the expense of the normal three.5mm audio port, which right here is missing in action. If accurate, that implies Apple would pump sound by means of the Lightning jack, requiring adapters for all the earphones, external speakers and other audio accessories that use the normal audio jack. Bluetooth earphones and speakers would nonetheless perform.
As often, iPhone 7 mockups and other rumors must be taken with a grain of salt. The actual point must make an look subsequent month when Apple is anticipated to hold its annual iPhone launch occasion.
Apple did not right away respond to CNET's request for comment.
