The big news for Apple fans this year is that an all new iPhone is expected to launch, and already there are a ton of rumours about what this iPhone 7 might look like and feature including these images from a supplier website in China.
As we all know, the iPhone is made in China by Foxconn, and we also know that in recent years the security around upcoming iPhone models hasn’t has been as fierce as it once was. Leaks have lead to iPhone 5 clones launching before the iPhone, 5, and iPhone 6 components released ahead of its launch too.
Chances are the same will be seen for the iPhone 7 as Chinese suppliers accidentally (?) leak details the new iOS phone. What makes news of the iPhone 7 more exciting than the iPhone 6S (for Apple fans at least) is the fact that this will be an all new model featuring a new design and more features (if Apple are following their usual launch cycle).
iPhone 7 images leaked on supplier website
This brings us to these new images of an alleged iPhone 7 design found on a popular Chinese components supplier website. The images clearly show a new design that mixes features of the current iPhone 6S with details from the previous generation iPhone 5S.
What we get is a phone with 2.5D glass from panel, and flat metal sides with a 3.5mm headphone jack in the base of the phone and single speaker. The design is traditionally iPhone, but appears much thinner than previous generations despite rumours the device will have a larger 3000mAh+ battery and up to 256GB memory.
The images don’t show the rear of the iPhone 7 but do show images of the phone sitting on a wireless charging dock, and we also get a glimpse of the inside of the new phone and the powerful Apple A10 chipset.
In addition to the iPhone 7, Apple are also rumoured to be building a new smaller iPhone for this year, a trend that Meizu may also be following with their rumoured launch of the Meizu Pro 5 Mini later this month.
