iphone-7-vs-iphone-6s-NowhereElse 005

Two days ago, a six-second clip gave us our first non-static look at a claimed iPhone 7 dummy case.

Last evening, French blog NowhereElse.fr shared another video that was posted to Chinese microblogging site Weibo, which offers a side-by-side comparison of an iPhone 7 casing against the iPhone 6s’s industrial design.

Corroborating prior rumors, the claimed clip shows a larger camera opening on the backside plus redesigned, more subdued antenna lines and—you guessed right—no headphone jack. If Apple follows its usual release schedule, the iPhone 7 will make its debut in September.

You can clearly see that the antenna lines on the claimed iPhone 7 casing run along the top and bottom only, with the horizontal lines seen on the iPhone 6s nowhere to be seen. Also, the iPhone 7 casing has a pair of speaker grilles for stereo sound, one on each side of the Lightning connector, and no headphone jack.

Aside from the aforementioned lack of the 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom, the casing shown on photographs has a larger camera opening with a curvature connecting the camera module to the backside, which results in a more seamless camera bulge appearance versus that on the iPhone 6s.

And here’s the video, it runs two minutes and forty seconds long.

Plus, another comparison of the camera design and antenna lines.

The removal of the headphone jack should make room for a bigger battery, which in the case of a 4.7-inch iPhone 7 is said to be sixteen percent bigger than the iPhone 6s’s.

The video doesn’t show off a 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus that is thought to provide some exclusive features to customers, such as a dual-lens camera system sporting a wider camera cutout, 3GB of RAM (more RAM is needed to process data captured by dual cameras), waterproofing, wireless charging, a Smart Connector and other perks.

What are your thoughts on today’s video?

    Boring as usual.

      What were you expecting that wasn’t there?

    • igorsky

      These types of posts are boring as usual.

  • Danuel Carr

    Disappointing hardware release. No wonder they packed so much into iOS 10.

  • Corey Hawkins II

    I just can’t get over the fact that the model number on the back of the “iPhone 7” frame is A1524, which is the same model number as the iPhone 6 Plus

  • Noe Hernandez

    On previous pictures it showed the new iPhone 7 without a silent button. These here clearly show a silent button so one if not both videos of the new iPhone 7 are fake

    • Bill

      Real video, possibly not real iPhone design*

      Also, you don’t think Apple might manufacture prototypes of varying design? Or do you think they just draw them up in CAD and then order a billion devices without getting hands on any of them?

    Im a fan of it.

    I am Chinese, and the guy is speaking in mandarin. In the video, he says the two grilles on the bottom on the iPhone will not be for stereo sound. Instead, it will be a mono speaker, and the other grille will be for the Mic; not dissimilar to the current iPhone. Please correct.

    Apple is really thinking of the users with this revision by saving iPhone 6/6s owners $650+ because now we know to wait until next year for a new iPhone.

    • 5723alex .

      Why wait ? Buy the Note 7 which totally different from the Note 5… or the S7 Edge which is a revolution compared with S6 Edge.

      • Abhijeet Gupta

        Note 7 is shaping up to be a beast.

      • 5723alex .

        A beast that will be trashed in performance by the iPhone SE and the 6S not to mention iPhone 7.

        so wrong! I gladly switched from a Note 5 to 6s. the main reason is TouchWiz. Was a mess and still is. Put hardware aside for a minute because both devices built quality is near perfect. This all about Android vs iOS and maybe some useless features thrown in from Samsung. Eventually I decided for myself that phone stability, smooth UI are more important than features. Since Note 5 uses Samsung CPU so no custom roms to play around. And why should I bother with roms anyway. Sold the sucker and I’m glad I did before Note 7 release, since Android phone prices dive like no other.

      • M_Hawke

        Saw a friend with an S7. Stunning phone.

    • Abhijeet Gupta

      Approx 1000$ in India

  • Jamessmooth

    That’s one helluva camera bump

    • Vadim

      yeah agree. looks so bad

  • Mallouk Malek

    bigger cam embed ? seriously ? no thx

  • Nesar

    Come on Apple I’ve waited two years for this and all you come up with is this?
    If you want my money then show me some real honey!!!!

    • dudeimmexican

      Get the Note7, looks like the better choice or the Alcatel 4s ($350 with freebies)

  • leart

    I can’t be sure that I will not get it when it will come out.. so far I like the new frame design

  • lou111

    Oh man… We’ve got still almost 3 month to go. These pictures are “leaking” since January. I am pretty sure that making some 3d prints or self made “iPhones 7” by some factories is a great business. You make a one simple video and getting great money from youtube. I hate “new iPhone” rumors..

  • dev Sar

    Boring and stupid and not worth of buying

  • schnooki

    I mean – a camera that sticks out even further – reminds me of a Galaxy S3.
    When you put it on a flat surface and use the touch screen it rocks all over the place but now even worse, not to mention how ugly it looks.
