According to the latest report, Apple will ditch the 16GB storage in favour of a 32GB base storage. Kevin Wang, Director of Market Research at IHS Technology has done “supply chain research” and has found out that 32GB storage and 2GB RAM will be in the new base model. Also, iPhone 7 Plus’ highest variant is expected to come with 256GB storage.
Kevin has provided a lot of genuine information in the past and hence it looks trustworthy. Also, its high time that Apple ditches the 16GB base storage, since it is not enough when you’re providing 4K video recording support. Most of the other flagship smartphones also come with 32GB ROM as base storage since last year and hence Apple should step up its game as well.
The new iPhone 7 will have 2GB RAM as standard is also true, since the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus and SE came with 2GB RAM. However, there were rumours of the iPhone 7 Plus (or Pro) featuring 3GB of RAM. Maybe the dual rear camera setup on the bigger variant would require more RAM, hence we need to wait till the final announcement. Check out the features of iPhone 7.
Features of Apple iPhone 7
These iPhone 7 renders are actually based on real 3D technical drawings of the device. However, the colors and materials used are not official but inspired from the iPhone 6s. Also, it is to be noted that the buttons, camera placement and all functional parts are in their correct positions since the renders are based on the technical drawings of the device. If we go by the Apple scheme of things, then the actual material (7000-series aluminium and specialized Corning Glass) will also be very similar to the previous generation iPhone.
If you look at the back of the iPhone 7, the most important visual change is that of the new antenna lines. Apple has decided to change the cutouts for the antennas. However, it still exists, in spite of customers hating them since in order to get cellular reception, you need them (no other way). Coming to the rear camera, it will have that bump (annoying though).
The iPhone 7 will be rocking two grilles at the bottom, which was earlier seen on the iPhone 5s, and one grille was used for mic only. However, it was dropped in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus in favour of a single tiny mic. Also, bringing both the grilles back can be a sign for the stereo speakers (high time), but we are only assuming here (hope it is true). As expected, the iPhone 7 will also not come with a 3.5 mm audio jack and will instead feature a Smart Connector (possibly).
Also, the iPhone 7 might be waterproof and sport a touch home button (rumoured to be on iPhone 7 Plus as well), but it is not confirmed yet. Apple is expected to unveil the new iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (or Pro) in September 2016.
