iPhone 7 dummies DetroidBORG leak 003

Tech reviewer Michael Kukielka aka DetroidBORG recently published a quick preview of what the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are probably going to look like when they’re announced this Wednesday. The video on his YouTube channel actually compares high-quality iPhone 7 dummies that are mostly based on rumor-mill reporting. Now, I know we’ve posted our fair share of these mockups in past months.

But with Apple’s big reveal almost upon us, I thought you guys might want to take another look at the iPhone 7’s design before the shiny new devices are unveiled.

Again, these are just mockups that are widely available online as design case studies for case and accessory manufacturers and the like. Check out his video that I embedded right below.

Are you disappointed that the next iPhone appears to be nearly identical to the iPhone 6s in terms of exterior design? I am not, because it should have significant hardware improvements and, you know, those two brand new Darth Vader-like colorways.

Let us know what you think down in the comments.

    I miss the days when we would be surprised by a new iPhone. Now every blog is spoiling all the surprise and wonder Steve Jobs intended keynotes to be. 🙁

    • Agneev Mukherjee

      I agree, Apple should learn again to keep unannounced products under wraps.

      • Alex Nicolai

        Totally. Apple should beef up their security but also tech blogs that appreciated Apple for so many years could report less on rumors and leaks as a sign of respect and showmanship.

      • George

        Then what the hell would they report on? The iPhone 7s rumors start a day after the iPhone 7 will be announced.

      • Julio Hernandez

        Well apparently iPhone 7s won’t exist because I believe I read somewhere that for the 2017 iPhone they’re planning on skipping 7s/Plus and going straight to 8.

    • Merman123

      We haven’t been completely surprised with an iPhone since the 3G. You’re going way back there.

      • Alex Nicolai

        True true, still even, leaks and reporting haven’t been as prominent as before.

      • Jeffrey

        True that, it seems that every new iPhone comes with even more and more specific leaks… We even know a lot about the iPhone 8 while the 7 hasn’t even been announced yet!!!

      I agree. It’s nice to see a “leak” every once in a while, but now the element of surprise is gone now.

  • Budz Camacho

    Design dont matter to me. If you are an iPhone user you already know what to expect when it comes to design. I’ll probably wait till the 7s

    • Omar D. Plumey

      Don’t think there will be a 7s. I think next year’s is the 8, Anniversary Edition.

      • Budz Camacho

        Oh well. iPhone 8 it is. Lol. Im using my 6s+ till next year.

  • nova voter

    I’m fine with the design being the same. I’m just excited to move from the 6+ to the regular smaller 7. I’m not a fan of the bigger phone.

  • pnh

    I’m sure by Thursday you’ll be wasting our time with nonsense guessing about next year’s iPhone.

    • Bill

      I’m sure I’ve seen articles about it already, actually. No attention spans, nothing comes fast enough, and day-old stuff is “too old” for people anymore. What a time to be alive.

  • Stoffsprenger

    I haven’t met a person that’s been exited after seeing those mockups. Neither have I. Apple will again sell many iPhones no doubt, especially because iPhone 6 owners have a contract that’s running out soon.. But to be honest (call me a shallow person IDC) I like something new and good looking! Nowadays most expensive phones perform great, have really good cameras, good software (Especially iOS), it’s the design, the feel in the hand, the sexiness of the phone – that makes me wanna change my current iPhone.

  • Bibibombibi

    Frankly, I’m not excited with the designs. But I do hope it will have a much better improved camera with the iPhone 7. Hope to see the cameras performing well with low light shots.

  • tariq

    still gotta wrap my head around the idea of no headphone jack..

    • Mr_Meee

      How much will it cost you for new headphones, when you already have great ones that won’t support the “7”.

      • tariq

        i just stick to android lol. And keep my beats

  • h4nd0fg0d

    Only excitement is the loss of the infernal and equally archaic mechanical home button. The nicest upgrade by far imo…

  • James G

    New color ways soften the blow of a 3rd consecutive year with essentially the same ID.
