:: Leaked photos show protective camera ring on iPhone 7
:: Camera sensor is larger than the predecessor
:: iPhone 7 Plus to sport a dual camera setup at the back
Apple’s upcoming iPhone 7 has been the victim of many leaks, and the flow seems never to abate. The latest photos reveal some interesting details about the cameras on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The photos also provide conflicting evidence for the inclusion of the 3.5mm audio jack, making the mystery murkier.
The photos from noted tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer show the back and the bottom portion of the iPhone 7. The back reveals a bump in the camera casing, revealing that the camera shall continue to protrude, but will come with a protective ring surrounding it.
The camera hole is also a bit larger than its predecessor, and is placed near to the edge of the smartphone hinting at some changes in the camera hardware. It is rumoured that the iPhone 7 will come with a larger CMOS sensor, and these changes are a result of that upgrade.
The photos also show the bottom of the device, revealing the absence of the 3.5mm audio jack. With more free space, there are two speaker grilles alongside the Lightning port. A separate iPhone 7 Plus image reveals the dual camera setup at the back, something that has been rumoured on several occasions previously. On the iPhone 7 Plus, both the rear cameras are aligned horizontally right next to each other followed by the flash sitting beside it.
