Apple’s upcoming smartphone has been subjected to various leaks, leaving little to the imagination. Now, a new report further reveals that the new iPhone 7 will come in three variants.
Until this leak, the iPhone 7 was expected to release in two variants – iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. However, this screenshot from Mobipicker tips that there might be another variant called either the iPhone 7 Pro or iPhone Plus Premium. This may explain why Foxconn and Pegatron, both Applesuppliers, are looking to urgently mass hire large number of workers.
The addition of a third variant has increased production demands, and therefore the companies need more people to speed up the manufacturing process. This also means that all the three variants have now left Apple’s drawing board and have reached manufacturing tables.
There is no information on what unique utility the third variant will offer. Whether this rumour is true or not, readers should take all leaks until the official unveil with a pinch of salt. In this year’s release, Apple isn’t expected to go for a major design overhaul, and is keeping most things same except for a few tweaks. The antenna bands may be shifted to the top and bottom edge, while there might just be the addition laser autofocus in the camera. The larger variant is tipped to have a dual camera setup, accompanied by 3GB of RAM.
The iPhone 7 variants are expected to sport the Smart Connector, with Apple getting rid of the 3.5mm audio jack. However, there are conflicting reports that reject the absence of the jack.
