Tim Cook could take to stage to officially unveil the iPhone 7 (or so it will be called) before official announcement yesterday, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has spoiled the surprise by revealing a lot of major changes coming in the next Apple phone.
According to the research note obtained by Apple Insider, the next Apple iPhone will come with a range of new features, some of which have been long speculated like a bump in storage and a lightning headphone connector instead of the standard 3.5mm jack.
Here are the top features revealed ahead of the iPhone 7 launch and now its already out for our viewers:
One of the biggest changes is the change in storage capacities on offer. The iPhone 6 family came in 16 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB. But the successors will come in options of 32 GB, 128 GB, and a bumper 256 GB, doing away with the low 16 and 64 GB storage choices.
A feature that has been long speculated is the next iPhone’s camera. It will come with a dual 12 megapixel rear camera module. However, the dual rear sensors will be limited to the highest model – iPhone 7 Plus – and use 1x wide angle, and 1x telephoto lens. The flash LEDs have also been doubled from two to four with warm and cool colours.
The iPhone 7 as well as iPhone 7 Plus will be IPX7 water resistant, which essentially means they can withstand splashes and full submersion for up to 30 minutes. The phone will come with a second external speaker and integrated amplifier for better audio output.
