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.
