As consumers and analysts had long expected, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) launched the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus with big screens. Those devices have taken the smartphone world by storm. Some of the biggest highlights of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were larger display, iOS 8, Apple Pay, and HealthKit. Now what’s next from Apple? The iPhone 7. What the iPhone 7 would look like? What would be its features and specs?
iPhone 7 with no Home button
Apple hasn’t confirmed anything. But rumors about the phone have started doing rounds. Recently, reports surfaced that Foxconn Technology Co Ltd (TPE:2354), the company that assembles iPhones, will be responsible for producing the iPhone 7 display. The processor will reportedly be made by Samsung.
iPhone 7 Update claims that Apple’s next flagship device will have even bigger display than the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus to offer better viewing experience. Just like Apple Watch, the iPhone 7 display would be made of sapphire glass, which is considered tougher than concrete.
There have been talks that the Cupertino company would remove the Home button from the next iPhone due to the inclusion of TouchID sensor. If it turns out to be true, it will enhance user-friendly touch navigation. The tech giant is also expected to add face recognition as a method to unlock the phone.
The iPhone 7’s body could be made of liquid metal to ensure that no bendgate controversy erupts following the launch. Apple has always packed its devices with high-performance processors. There are speculations that the iPhone 7 will arrive with quad-core A8 processor to take the performance to a whole new level.
iPhone 7 to have a built-in projector
The current iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are available in 128GB memory, which is quite impressive. So, the forthcoming device is expected to have internal memory of up to 256GB or even higher. The report further claims that the iPhone 7 will have a 14-megapixel main camera and a built-in projector. The projector is aimed at business users as Apple continues to push further in the enterprise sector.
Expect the iPhone 7 to arrive sometime in the third-quarter of 2015. Apple shares inched up 0.49% to $114.74 in early trading Monday.
