Leaked case suggests dual cameras and stereo speakers for iPhone 7

Prolific leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer today posted claimed images of a purported case for Apple’s unreleased iPhone 7 on Twitter.

While not the first iPhone 7 case, this one is pretty interesting as it seemingly corroborates that the handset will in fact ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack while adopting a dual-camera setup on the back and stereo speakers.

Apple is expected to formally announce the iPhone 7, the next major upgrade to its smartphone lineup, in September.

It should be noted that case vendors sometimes base their accessories on rumors alone in an effort to be first out of the gate with a case when the new handset arrives. As such, these leaks should be taken with a grain of salt.

If these photographs represent a genuine iPhone 7 case, Apple’s next smartphone should have a similar rounded design with a flat back like the current iPhone 6/6s series. The two speaker grilles at the bottom suggest that the iPhone 7 will have stereo speakers, as previously suspected.

As you can see for yourself, there’s no hole for the headphone jack as the iPhone 7 is said to drop the standard 3.5mm audio connector in favor of wired Lightning-enabled headphones and wireless Bluetooth headsets.

The size of the hole for the rear camera suggests that this particular case maker is buying into the rumor that the iPhone 7 will feature a dual-camera setup on the back. On the other hand, it could be a design choice on part of the case maker as the hole could accommodate standard rear lens along with a LED flash module.

The reliable Japanese blog Mac Otakara reiterated recently that the iPhone 7 will include a thinner Lightning port, stereo speakers, a rear camera that’s flush with the housing and no antenna bands on the back.

    If only we could predict the future. For now I’m guessing these cases will be on eBay when it comes to fruition that things just aren’t exactly as they think they are going to be.

  • Heitor Castro

    Case manufacturers are able to make whatever phone case they want to. So this is not leaked, it’s just a case made based on recent rumors, pointless at all.

  • Rodney Coleman

    How do you see dual cameras??? Come on.

  • James G

    Fake. Nope.

  • Meh, as long as the camera doesn’t protrude Ill be happy.

  • Thinner lightning port? This won’t happen unless they change the connector once again. I also doubt it will future a rounded design so alike as the 6/s.

  • rockdude094

    Ewwwwwwwwww rounded corners

  • Bangali

    how does this corroborate stereo speakers? there cases for the 6/s with identical cutouts..for the mic and jack. Also, it would be kind of pointless if both the speakers were placed at the bottom no?

    Hahaha! This is nothing more than a horribly cheap iPhone 6 case. To say that you can tell by looking at the case that the iPhone 7 will have double cameras might be the biggest stretch ever! Also the case was made so cheaply that the headphone jack hole and the hole for the speaker are the same size. MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

    • KOZY_Gremlin_Gang

      Lol you can’t read….it says it was made assuming apple removes the headphone jack

  • TechToch

    it has the same fu*king design !!!

    • Ian
