iPhone 7 to lose camera bump and rear antenna lines, report says

By , Feb 2, 2016


The iPhone 7 won’t feature a camera bump or antenna lines on its rear casing, reports MacRumors. Citing a source who has “provided reliable information in the past,” the outlet says the smartphone is going to appear similar in design to the iPhone 6s, except for these changes.

For the camera bump, it appears Apple will use a thinner camera module for the iPhone 7’s iSight camera that will allow the lens to sit flush with the back-casing. The iPhone 7 Plus is rumored to feature a dual-lens camera, so it’s unknown if it will retain the rear bump or not.

As for the antenna lines, the report says that Apple has figured out an antenna system that will no longer require the lines to stripe across the iPhone’s rear casing. This will allow a more seamless design, although the bands on the side and across the top and bottom will stay.

It’s believed Apple will unveil the iPhone 7 at an event in September, as it has done in recent years. Other rumors for the device include the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack, waterproofing, and wireless charging—although a recent report claims that feature may not show up until 2017.

    The photoshopped photo looks horrible, if it’s true this will be the best looking iPhone ever. In my opinion, the rear of the iPhone 5 looks way better than the one of the 6-6S.

      The black iPhone 5 was awesome. But then again, that may just be because most times we see white or now gold. Plus they changed the black the year after. I mean most other cell phones are black, so it’s not like it was special in the grand scheme. But I still loved mine LOL

      Na it’s ugly they need to dead those lines and the camera bump all together.

  • Strange no i7 renders have leaked yet. They always leak 6 months before launch and this time Apple is making everyone guess how radical the design would be.

    That’s still ugly.. I hope they do a full redesign

    Yeah, not a fan of the 6 (or higher) rear view. Make it a little thicker, then you can also provide a longer lasting battery life.
