New video shows off three different iPhone 7 dummies in crisp 4K resolution

iPhone 7 dummy 003

I known we’ve had enough of uninspiring iPhone 7 mockups. Also, dummy iPhone cases like this one are a dime a dozen on Chinese sites like Ali Express as vendors have always been eager to produce rumor-based iPhone housings to gain free press.

That said, the 4K video you’re about to see offers a different look at three iPhone 7 dummies—one is 4.7-inch and the other two are 5.5 inches—in line with questionable rumors that Apple could ship two different versions of the larger 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus.

Because the video is in 4K resolution and as such provides a good look at the iPhone 7’s supposed iPhone 6s-like design, we’re posting it here for the sake of discussion.

Here’s that clip.

Don’t forget to click the embedded video’s settings menu to select 4K resolution, and then go full screen to enjoy it on your 5K iMac.

Again, these are simply mockups that someone created from unconfirmed iPhone 7 rumors that have been swirling around for months now. The video was posted to YouTube by an account thank links to a third-party Japanese iPhone reservation store.

If you need another proof that these “iPhones” are dummies, look no further than the the model number “A1429” that identifies an iPhone 5 model, though the lack of Apple fit and finish and plasticky side buttons also give them away, so there’s that.

    If the internet, iDownlaodblog, and every apple-driven-blog is that High Res is never the truth. Only this 0.5MP pics with shitty 2000-2009 backgrounds and chinese watermarks.

    It really is shame that they will be reserving the dual camera system for the larger phone. Thanks for leaving us who would prefer a smaller phone but the best camera available out to dry. I can understand the supposed technical difficulties, but come one Apple. If you can figure out how to cram as much battery in the given space and a new keyboard mechanism for the lightest MacBook ever, you should be able to figure out how to put the same camera in all phones. YES, we can sacrifice some of the thickness for some extra room or extra battery life. We don’t need paper thin devices at the cost of awesome features and battery life.

      I’d like my iPhone 6S to have the same thickness as the iPhone 4 if that means all day battery life. It’s the one feature I’m willing to upgrade for.

        I wouldn’t go as far to say iPhone 4 thickness. That would pretty much be iPhone 6/s Plus weight, but I get your point. I would be okay with it being about the same thickness as the iPhone 5/s/SE.

      You really don’t know what’s going to be in final production

        We don’t know, but a good majority of the rumors at this point in the cycle in the last few years panned out to be true… There’s a pretty good chance this is happening. Not surprising since the current Pluses have marginally better cameras and screen resolution. It would be a pleasant surprise if these rumors turned out to be wrong and they end up putting the dual lens on the 4.7″

    But why the apple logo on de SE shine and for the other 3 it looks like idk..fake..

    • techfreak23

      It could either be that they are painting them on again like they were on the 5/s/SE (which I hope they aren’t) or they have not been cut out for the solid logo insert. No point in doing the extra milling for prototypes.

      Maybe a glowing logo….

    All I know is the track playing in the background is perfect while I smoke my joint /watching USA Mens Basketball in the Olympics.
