Famous leaker Evan Blass said that Apple will launch its new iPhone 7 on September 16, but it will start taking pre-orders a week earlier. This information hasn’t been confirmed by Apple, but there might be a seed of truth in this claim, because last year, preorders for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus have started on September 12, and it is known that the manufacturer is setting the release date of its flagship only on Fridays.

Evan Blass didn’t want to reveal his source, but his prediction is realistic, because his views coincide with those of other analysts and watchers who believe that Apple will release the iPhone 7 on September 16. Blass has tweeted about this release date on Saturday and yesterday, he posted the following message: “Confirmed: Pre-orders start on the 9th. You can extrapolate the launch event date from there.”

The iPhone 7 is rumored to come with stereo speakers; a flat home button which will flush with the surface of the screen (4.7-inch) and which will respond with a vibration when touched; a larger camera lens and a USB Type C connection that will be located at the bottom of the device; the 3.5mm headphone port will be removed; the antenna will be repositioned on the corners instead of running across the back; the traditional Space Grey color will be replaced with Space Black.

According to GSMArena, the iPhone 7 will measure 138.3 x 67.1 x 7.1 mm, it will be powered by the next A10 processor which will be backed by 2GB of RAM and will be available in three variants of internal memories of 16/64/128 GB. The battery will be upgraded from 1715 mAh to 1960 mAh, but the cameras will not suffer any changes, as they will support the same resolutions of 12MP and 5MP.
