Modified Russian accessory vendor Feld & Volk, known for customizing iPhones with luxury parts like solid gold volume buttons, has posted a set of renderings based on multiple rumors that call for an iPhone 7 without visible band seams on the back.

Relayed by MacRumors, these high-quality renderings depict what the iPhone 7 would look like assuming the clean back rumor is accurate.

The top photo gives a closeup view of the iPhone 7 Plus’s rumored dual-lens camera that’s nearly flush with the chassis. The renderings imagine the two rear cameras as housed inside an oval-shaped cutout.

We also get to see a microphone and dual-LED flash, like on prior iPhone models. Near the bottom on the back are three dots which could be for a Smart Connector, a new magnetically attached interface for accessories.

“Based on its research, Feld & Volk believes that both the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus may include a dual-lens camera, contradicting several other claims that the camera will be unique to the larger iPhone 7 Plus,” notes MacRumors.

The top and bottom antenna bands are nowhere to be seen on the images.

As for the dimensions, Feld & Volk thinks the iPhone 7 will be 6.1 mm thick without the camera protrusion versus 7.1mm for the current-generation iPhone 6s and in line with the sixth-generation iPod touch.

Another high/quality rendering, seen above, shows a 128GB iPhone 7 with Fold & Volk’s “Double Carbon” modification. The modification company is already prepping its own custom versions of the iPhone 7.

Other design details seem to corroborate rumors that the iPhone 7 will have an iPhone 6s/style exterior design wit the same unibody aluminum shell, pill-shaped volume buttons and a side-facing power button like the current generation.

Recently leaked CAD drawings from Apple supplier Catcher Technology depict a device that resembles an unreleased iPhone 7 model with roughly the same dimensions as the current generation, but without visible band seams on the back.

Earlier today, Chinese website Bastille Post published a claimed iPhone 7 Plus image that suggests the device may adopt the iPad Pro’s Smart Connector.

As you know, Apple will be holding an invite-only press event on March 21.

Based on rumors, Apple is expected to unveil a new four-inch iPhone SE model, a smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro, new Apple Watch bands and possibly update or announce other products and/or accessories, like a 4K-capable Thunderbolt Display.

    This looks horrible!

    • Well everyone said that about the 6..

      • Matt

        Which still does not look better than it’s predecessors. Granted the design has grown on me for the past 1 and half years, but by no means is it a beautiful phone. All the have to do for me is get rid of the antenna lines and that camera bulge

      • Same here…

  • Hussain Alsanona

    Piece of shit

  • n0ahcruz3

    Iphone 6ss 2.0 lol we gonna bear with this design for another 2 years! If that really is the “7” sick of the 6/6s design


    i always use a case.. i don’t care to much for the designs.. give me battery life that will last me to the next day!!!!..i know that’s to much the end of day is good for me..

  • iPhoneWINS

    this is what happens when a company is number one for two long and has no competition

    • Maxim∑

      they arent number one so

      • Gregg

        They aren’t? Who is, then? On what planet?

      • Maxim∑


        Planet: Earth

      • Shadowelite123

        Lol I’m sure Samsung is number one despite their consistent quarterly profit loss

      • Gregg

        Ok, got it. Wrong website. Sammy fan site is that way —>

      • Mohāmmèd Âłî

        Well , they maybe aren’t number 1 anymore.
        But they make the most money , thats the problem.
        Thats why they are getting lazy.

    Apple still going downhill fast lol. Same design for 3 years? Even if this is a render it can’t be too far off from the real thing. Sad thing is, we’ll probably still buy this crap

  • Ja1lBreak K1nG

    really people? how much better do you think a phone can get in one year? the improvements of the iPhone has been huge since 2010.. if they release a Phone with a lot a new features the same year then they won’t have anything new to add to the next model. That’s just marketing strategy!

  • Phil Randle

    I have a feeling this will be a close match, but I think the display may curve into the iPhone to improve the ability of the side gestures and force touch assets they have added in.

    I think that camera mockup is one of the best I have seen though.

  • BuBubbi

    I would rather see a slightly thicker iPhone with a larger battery, than these ultra thin ones.

  • Ja1lBreak K1nG

    I think they should release 2 more models with larger battery and give us more options.

  • Gregg

    What’s a “modified Russian”?

  • therealjjohnson

    I like the bands. Never had a problem with them. Don’t get rid of them.

  • Micke på taket

    Cry me a river … This is just an russian render..First of all , Apple never gonna put 2 cameras in their Phone , second , the camera hump ,, no way they gonna make that bigger,,please relax , the 7 is gonna be a solid device for sure ..

    • JaeM1llz

      These are Russian renderings based on leaked schematics from the same French blog that leaked the iPhone 6 schematics(which were 100% accurate). Don’t be surprised if these ones are 100% accurate as well.

    • therealjjohnson

      You got something against Russia? If it leaked from Tenesses would it be more credible?

  • Jonathan

    I’ve had every iPhone since the first one. If this is the new one, I’m getting a Samsung !

    • Amac25

      Yea i’m already planning on getting the Note 6. Had an iPhone since the 4, time for something new with better battery.

      • tariq

        i know u said note 6. But fyi.. I just got s7 Edge, even tho the battert is 3600mAh, it barely lasts me a day. Kinda disappointed bc my sony phone had smaller battery and lasted a day also. Lesson: dont judge battery by mAh/: make sure u watch some reviews before getting Note 6 (when its release) to see if battery is long enough. Hope this message helps! if not, just ignore and move on lol

      • Amac25

        Thanks for the info. How is the edge as far as software and hardware other than battery life?

      • tariq

        everything else is great tbh. It does heat up when charging and using at same time, according to Clean Master app my phone was 104F. The phone does drop to normal temp pretty quick if it is not being used for few mins.

  • John Smith

    I can see antenna bands.

  • Isaac Moncure

    The camera looks like the eyes of Bender on Futurama.

  • rockdude094

    My professional opinion : Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww

  • Bangali

    How is that camera ‘nearly flush with the chassis’?? its more protruding than the 6/s?! Seriously you guys need to report better..

  • Anonymous

    I like the mock up, but i find it hard to believe a smart concetor is nessary.
