The upcoming flagship will be released this September and we still don’t have enough information about its specs and features, because Apple stays mum and not many details are leaked, to the disappointment to the curious fans who are anxious to get their hands on the iPhone 7. So, what changes will make Apple to this phone? Well, a while ago it was rumored that the manufacturer will replace the headphone jack. Recently, AppleInsider obtained a Barclays research memo which claimed that Apple will use a second speaker, making the iPhone 7 the first phone of this series that will benefit from stereo audio.
Barclays has also mentioned that Apple will use a second amplifier that was built by Cirrus Logic, which will boost the power and will help the iPhone 7 compete with Huawei, HTC and Google’s latest Nexuses in terms of sound quality. Samsung is currently stuck with a single mono speaker and most likely, the Galaxy S7 will come with it, as well.
Apple’s iPhones haven’t changed their designs much over the years, and the iPhone 6S is identical to its predecessor, only that it has a new color option, Rose Gold. The addition of a second speaker would allow Apple to make some aesthetic tweaks and why not, the iPhone 7 could support wireless charging, it will have a bigger battery and will be waterproof.
As for the rest of specs and features, according to9to5Mac, who obtained a report by Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities, the iPhone 7 will have a dual-lens camera which will perform better in low light conditions and the design will be less protruding.
The body might not be made of metal anymore, as, according to DigiTimes, Apple will use mysterious “new compound materials” and the white antenna bands might be removed. Also, the new chipset will be A10 and the device will run on the upcoming iOS 10, which will be unveiled at the WWDC event, in June.
