Additional photos depict curved camera bulge on iPhone 7

iPhone 7 case molds NowhereElse 002

Following a photograph posted this morning by Italian site, which allegedly showed iPhone 7 case molds in Gold, Rose Gold, Space Gray and Silver (but not in the rumored Apple Watch-like Space Black appearance), French blog posted a pair of case mold shots of its own.

The new photos give us a better look at the camera bulge on the device’s back, which now appears a bit smoother and cleaner due to seamless integration of the camera and the device’s backside.

The images depict case molds for a 4.7-inch model of the iPhone 7 and appear to be in line with prior rumors. Specifically, the hole for the iPhone 7’s single-camera system is visibly larger than that on the current-generation 4.7-inch iPhone 6s. The rumored dual-lens camera should be exclusive to the iPhone 7 Plus model.

Here’s another image posted by the site.

A larger opening lets more light in, in turn boosting the quality of photos taken in low-light conditions. You can also see that the camera hardware, along with its metal ring, doesn’t just protrude from the hole on the back like on the iPhone 6/6s series, but is now more seamlessly integrated into the housing.

Sure, it still sticks out like before so there’ll be no escaping that unsightly camera bulge, but at least it now looks easier on the eyes due to the smooth curvature.

Feel free to share your observations down in the comments.

    camera humps is ugly af
    But I like how Apple is removing the home button and make it force touch enabled

    • igorsky

      Camera bumps are now the norm for most phones, so get used to it.

      Also I have no idea how you came up with the no home button conclusion.

      • Leonard Wong

        first photo, if you look carefully, you will see it is different

        I hate the camera bump too man):
        Got the s7edge and I scratched the ring of the camera WITH a case on. It doesn’t affect the camera or anything but its annoying having the scratch there

      • igorsky

        That does not look any different to me. But I will agree that a Force Touch home button would rock.

      • It’s not different at all.. especially since thats a 6S. These are rear cases not entire working phones and that phone is on…

    • leart

      mostly for sure we all will use a case anyway… so problem solved

  • HamptonWalley

    No black?

  • Can we please stop with these mock-ups already? They all look ugly.

    • igorsky

      Yes, please stop releasing information to satisfy Prasoon’s personal design preferences.

    Honestly speaking i kinda like the camera bump for the leaked iPhone 7 photos if they’re indeed the real deal. Unlike the one in 6/6s, they’re horrendous.

  • Jamessmooth

    I like it. I don’t know what the hell everyone’s problem is.

    • rockdude094

      Everyone has their own opinion there is no problem in that

    • YaBoyLilMayo

      Cuz then u can’t put ur phone down without it getting scratched

  • leart

    this is the typical view of how i always seen my iphones… inside a case 😀

    Personally i dont think we will see another color way until i7s apple since i4s only relases a new color way every two years.

  • AwesomeSauce

    Still no black, darn it.

  • John Wickham

    Why do the models in the last photo have all the regulatory info printed on the back? Didn’t they stop doing that with the 6s?

    • Yup. It’s all in settings now. So this clearly marks it fake.

    • Kyle McNulty – Mclovin341

      My UK model 6s has all that information printed on the back.

  • If they want to make the phone waterproof (which lots of rumours seem to point to) then they have to use a virtual home button. I hope they let us swap around pressing and double tapping! Double tap for multitasking would be sick!
