In the first quarter of 2016 Apple saw a 16 percent fall in the smartphone market share. Now this was mainly due to the lack of innovative features and new designs of iPhone 6 and 6S. So the inventors at the company are all set to come up with a market favorite which will salvage their monopoly in the market. In addition to the latest iOS, they are including a number of features to make iPhone 7 a best seller.
Cutting to the chase: all about Apple iPhone 7
When is it coming?
September 2016. Will be closely followed by 3 other models
What about its iOS?
The iPhone 7 and 7 Pro both will come with iOS 10.
How fast will it be?
According to rumors, the phone will run on a 2 GB RAM and next generation hexa-core A10 processors from TSMC.
How costly will it be?
Very surprisingly all latest rumors state that it won’t be priced exuberantly. In fact the prices may even compare to the good ol’ iPhone 6S.
A design very similar to 6S
It has been confirmed from the multitudes of leaked images and sketches that the new iPhone 7 will have a design very similar to 6S. iPhone 7 will have a 5.5 inch AMOLED display with redesigned rear antennas. The look will be much flusher owing to the replacement of a physical home button with a digital, touch-enabled one and the inclusion of flat camera lenses. In multiple sources an elliptical camera zone enhances the expectation of dual rear cameras. Reportedly, one of these will be a dual lens camera with DSLR like features for low light photography.
A cause for concern or innovation?
The removal of 3.5 mm headphone jacks is a cause for concern for many people. However the headphone jack is being replaced by a Smart Connector. From keyboards to tablets the Smart Connector can be used for transfer of data and power smoothly to and from your iPhone. Further research shows that the inclusion of a second stereo speaker may just be a rumor as the released schematics show no whiff of a second speaker at the base of the device.
Power to the users
The battery was a great disappointment in iPhones 6 and 6S. the iPhone 7 will be gifted with a better battery with a longer lifespan. The battery will definitely be higher than 2910 mAH and have a talk-time of around 8 hours. All the devices will come with complimentary wireless chargers.
When it comes to memory
Although nothing is known about the storage capacity of iPhone 7 we are sure it will come with expandable storage since the lack of one was the major drawback of its predecessors. Living in the 21st century it is pretty ridiculous if you expect your buyers (who dish out hundreds of dollars) to stick to a limited internal storage. We are expecting multiple variants starting from 16 GB of internal storage.
