Apple has sent out invites for its September 9 event where it is set to unveil the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. The tech giant is unlikely to launch the iPhone 7 until 2016, but concept designers have started coming up with stunning iPhone 7 concepts. Now AG has posted a YouTube video imagining what the next year’s iPhone 7 would look like. And it’s so cool that engineers in Cupertino might want to take a look at it.
iPhone 7 with 16MP main camera
AG imagines a bezelless iPhone 7 with a 4.9-inch display. The device boasts of a 16-megapixel iSight camera with 4K video capabilities and improved optical image stabilization. The front camera is 5-megapixel with a flash for taking better selfies in the dark. AG imagines the main camera with eight element lens. However, supply chain sources told Business Insider that Apple had placed orders for six-element camera lenses that would go into the iPhone 7.
This concept iPhone 7 weighs just 124g and boasts of a sapphire glass back, while the front display uses Corning Gorilla glass. According to the rendering, the next year’s iPhone would feature water-proofing, Force Touch technology, and face recognition technology. The device boasts of 2GB RAM and 18 hours of battery life.
Will iPhone 7 feature a built-in Apple SIM?
One thing that AG highlights in his concept is a built-in electronic Apple SIM. A few months ago, there were rumors that Apple might indeed use its own SIM card in the iPhone 7 to let users select a carrier on their own right out of the box. However, telecom operators may resist such a move.
The iPhone 7 is still about a year away, and many of the rumored features may not make it to the consumer version of the device. Earlier this month, British firm Intelligent Energy demonstrated its revolutionary technology on the iPhone 6 that would allow people to use the phone for a week without having to recharge it. The Telegraph has learned that Intelligent Energy was working closely with Apple. So, there is a chance that the British firm’s fuel cell technology might be incorporated into the iPhone 7.
