And the rumor mill continues to churn into overdrive with regards to Apple’s highly anticipated iPhone 7 devices coming out later this year. This time around it involves a series of case designs for the tech giant’s upcoming flagship devices that quite curiously, also fit the iPhone 6s. Could this mean that the iPhone 7 will retain the same dimensions and shape of the current iPhone model?
According to the tech blog Pocket-Lint, during the Computers Unlimited Exposed event held in the city of London in the United Kingdom just this week, Cygnett (a firm that specializes in producing accessories for iPhone devices) unwrapped a series of case designs as well as a glass screen protector that were built to fit the iPhone 7. In showcasing the case designs, Cygnett made use of an iPhone 6s, which suggests that perhaps the iPhone 7 has identical proportions compared to the iPhone 6s.
As for the glass screen protector showcased by Cygnett, it comes with a couple of holes at the top section. Pocket-Lint has offered the possibility that those two holes might be nothing more than a defect, considering that in some iPhone 6s units, there are two holes, while in most others, there is only one hole.
Cygnett has claimed that these case designs are the real deal. But taking into account Apple’s impressive track record of keeping secrets, iOS fans everywhere may have to wait for a few months before they can truly know if this rumor is indeed true.
The months leading up to the release of a new iPhone is always populated with all sorts of rumors and leaks. Just a few days ago for instance, there were reports that Apple was asking its suppliers to build between 72 million to 78 million units of new iPhone devices (Wall Street’s projections were at 65 million units), in anticipation of increased demand. There were even leaked photos showing the 4.7 inch variant of the iPhone 7 to possess an additional pair of speaker grilles. Other rumors include features like dual speakers, casings made of glass, a camera on the rear side that is flush with the smartphone’s surface, and dual camera configuration (but only on the iPhone 7 Plus). Past leaks also appear to suggest that the upcoming iPhone 7 will retain the overall design and look of the iPhone 6, with a larger camera lens, and with the 3.5 millimeter headphone jack getting the boot in favor of a lightning port.
