New iPhone 7 mockup shows blue finish, Smart Connector and other features

iPhone 7 Plus blue mockup Unbox Therapy 003

An earlier report from Japanese blog Macotakara alleged that the next iPhone might bring out a new deep blue color option, later described as being closer to a “dark Space Black,” similar to that used for the Space Black stainless stell Apple Watch.

Be that as it may, a new video from Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy shows off an iPhone 7 mockup with kind of blue-ish, purple-ish tone to it. It’s “a very unusual color for Apple and it doesn’t exist anywhere else in the product line,” says Hilsenteger.

This iPhone 7 Plus mockup was produced by a Chinese company called BeSound, which is working on Lightning-based earbuds for the iPhone 7.

Other than the blue-ish finish, this mockup also gives us our best view of other rumored features of the upcoming handset, including a dual-lens system that will likely be absent in the standard iPhone 7, and three vertical pins on the backside that may suggest a Smart Connector or wireless charging.

Other notes of interest include a pair of speaker grilles and no headphone jack at the bottom, a protruding dual camera with a curvature to it on the backside and subtler antenna lines that only run across the top and bottom of the device.

Would it be cool to see an iPhone in this shade?
