iPhone 7 case molds Macitynet 001

Italian site Macitynet.it posted this morning a photograph showing alleged 4.7-inch iPhone 7 case molds, giving us a decent indication what the upcoming handset may look like in Gold, Rose Gold, Space Gray and Silver finishes. If anything, the photo reaffirms Apple’s rumored design for the next iPhone with cleaner antenna seams and a protruding camera on the back, plus the four colorways.

Rather than running along the edges of the backplate, the controversial iPhone antenna lines appear more subdued cutting across the top and bottom of the device’s back, in line with prior rumors.

The photo was ostensibly obtained from a source at a third-party case manufacturer, which created these molds in preparation for the handset’s launch this fall. As such, the photo must be taken with a grain of salt because it doesn’t represent genuine parts that would normally leak from factories in Asia.

Curiously enough, a rumored iPhone 7 model in the Apple Watch-like Space Black finish isn’t shown, leading some watchers to speculate that Space Black may be exclusive to the iPhone 7 Plus.

Speaking of which, the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus isn’t shown in today’s images.

    Certainly a disappointing lack of design change with the iPhone 7 by the looks. I miss the excitement of when the iPhone 4, 5 and 6 all released with fresh new designs. Bar a few subtle changes, this is just going to feel like buying a further revamped iPhone 6/6s.

      I disagree, apple add Akley changes the design of the iPhone every four years. There are small settled changes over the course of four years which yield a appearance of a different model every two years An example is iphone 4 to 5s had a box design, yes from 4s to 5 the screen was bigger but it still had the box edges. The first four in hone had the plastic round edges. And imagine we wont see another major change till iphone 8. But i get alot of heat for saying this. Also im on a beta and leaving a comment currently is difficult sorry for any errors.

        There was significant design change from the 4 to the 5 in my opinion. Bigger screen, thinner, lighter, full aluminium shell.. It felt like a brand new iPhone. I loved pulling the iPhone 5 out of the box. I can’t see the iPhone 7 feeling like a newly designed iPhone, especially if they don’t add new colours and persist with garbage Space Grey.

        And your opinion is in line with the masses. And i can not dispute how you felt. However, i will not be surprised to not see a radical change till iphone 8. (If thats what apple calls it). Because I personally have only felt like ive had a brand new desgin every four generations. I suppose only till will till. =] and I wouldn’t expect to see the new color way till the s upgrade.

    I don’t like the space gray, it’s way too light and almost looks like the silver.

      Send Kane and Undertaker to threaten Tim and ask him to release the space black variant. LOL

    They should of made the antenna bands like that from the beginning. Wish they would make an iPhone with treated polished aluminum like the MacPro’s cover.

    Hmm gold looks the best. I hope there will be dark/blue variant. Anyway I am not buying and waiting for real iPhone 7

    That white strip at the bottom and top of the iPhone does not look good
