With just a few weeks to go until the rumoured iPhone 7 launch, mock-ups of the upcoming Apple smartphone are leaking out in force.
A new video has turned up on YouTube that seemingly depicts the iPhone 7, but there’s a catch. The phone in the video isn’t actually the iPhone 7, or even a handset that’s been pilfered from Foxconn’s production line. Instead, it’s a mock-up that’s been built based on leaked blueprints for the phone.
The fact that this is a mock-up means that its design could be entirely spurious. But it could also be spot on. After all, the design is very consistent with the other iPhone 7 leaks so far. As such, if you want a good idea of what the iPhone 7 will probably look like, this video is no bad place to start:
So what are the key points of interest? For a start, you’ll notice that the antenna banding on the back of the phone is less prominent. There’s also a complete absence of a headphone jack, which is in line with Apple’s rumoured removal of the 3.5mm audio port.
In the video, there are three models depicted – apparently, we’re going to see three variants of the iPhone 7. One of those is reportedly set to feature a dual-lens camera, as shown in the video.
Unfortunately, as with any leak, this video could have it completely wrong. So we’d recommend taking this leak, and all future iPhone leaks, with due caution.
Apple is expected to unveil the iPhone 7 at a dedicated launch event in September this year. The handset is rumoured to feature a number of minor upgrades, with major improvements reserved for next year’s 10th anniversary iPhone 8 – apparently.
