In iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, we saw the same design elements of its predecessors however, reports currently indicate that Apple iPhone 7 will come with a radical change in design that will be a lot different from the design of present-generation smartphones.
A couple of weeks ago, it was reported by ValueWalk that U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office (USPTO) has granted a patent for Apple to introduce a ‘glass wraparound device’. In the iPhones released in the future, the Cupertino-based giant will introduce spherical, cylindrical or any other kind of smartphones.
Meanwhile, over the past few weeks, we saw quite a few designs concepts of the iPhone 7 and recently, a new concept video was released by Mesut.G Designs and according to it, a slim handset with a bezel-less display could be featured in iPhone 7. The bezels which are located on the bottom and top portion of the screen have been minimized to a great extent.
On the rear portion of the device, you will notice features like an unobtrusive rear camera, an iconic Apple logo and also dual speakers at the bottom. You will notice no physical volume buttons on the side due to the presence of a wraparound display.
The physical volume buttons have been replaced by virtual volume buttons. The Home Button which was located on the device, have also been removed. The patent described by Apple states that the display could be folded in such a manner that images and videos will appear to be originating from a continuous loop.
Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities claimed last month that iPhone 7 would be incredibly thin and slimmer that the latest iPod Touch and iPad Air 2. The present iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus are around 7.1mm and 7.3mm thick. You can expect the device next year to come with a thickness of 6mm to 6.5mm.
Meanwhile, under the hood, the iPhone 7 will feature a hexa-core A10 processor manufactured by Samsung, Intel, and TSMC. Reports also indicate that a new gesture-based system has been developed by Apple in order to work with the Touch ID Fingerprint sensor.
The technology will be able to track how a particular dot is tapped and not just the dot tapped by the user. Meanwhile, Mac Okatara was told by supply chains sources in Asia that the iPhone 7 will come with a waterproof and dustproof design.
In the meantime, there are some Apple users who wish to experience a smaller iPhone, compared to the iPhone 6 and 6S. These people want the same awesome features and overall package to be packed in a device that is smaller than the present-generation iPhones.
At the same time, there are many users who have already experienced iOS 9 on the big-screen iPhones and they would absolutely hate it if Apple decides to release a smaller iPhone again.
The 3.5inch era of iPhone was wonderful as long as it lasted but that it’s over now and needless to say, there’s no going back. Current rumors indicate that a 4inch iPhone 6C is heading for us next year and presently a graphic designer also imagined what a 3.5inch iPhone would look like.
Apple hasn’t said a word about their upcoming iPhone since the company is still busy with releasing iPhone 6S to the entire world. However, supply chain details have already started to leak out information. One of the features that will make its way to the next iPhone is a six-core A10 processor.
The next iPhone chip will come with six cores, increased from two cores in the iPhone 6S and the 6S Plus. This was leaked through Chinese social networking site, Weibo. If the reports of the number of cores being increased are true, the smartphone will be able to handle more data and commands in a simultaneous manner.
