Few analysts and publications are referring to the upcoming Apple flagship device as the iPhone 6s instead of iPhone 7, but it is assumed that Apple might name the next iPhone release in such a manner to introduce a completely new revolution in iPhone generation.
iPhone 7 Release Date
New iPhone launches come at a regular interval or schedule according to which we see new models releases in the month of September. For many years we have been seeing a major release every year, with a new incremented model number, with issues fixed and few minor updates that comes with model names with an added “S”. For example, in 2012 September we saw the iPhone 5, with their updated version coming as iPhone 5S and 5C in 2013 September.
Similarly, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus were launched in September 2014, making September 2015 the possible launch of the iPhone 7 or it could be called iPhone 6S if the naming convention trend continues.
iPhone 7 or iPhone 6s?
Following the above explained pattern and assuming that Apple will keep the same small and large versions, designating the latter “Plus”, we might have the new phones titled iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. However, there are speculations that this convention might be dropped. If it is really true then we may instead see the all new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
iPhone 7 Features and Specifications
The next version, most probably, the iPhone 7 will get the biggest camera upgrade ever. Offering quality similar to a DSLR camera. It is rumored that iPhone 7 might have a camera with new “two-lens system” where the back camera has dual lenses and it somehow generates a DSLR like quality images. In our honest opinion, it’s hard to believe such speculation but none can be confirmed about the next level technology update.
All we can confirm that a huge camera upgrade is definitely due as the current versions of iPhones are still have an 8 megapixel camera where the big rivals such as Samsung Note and Galaxy S5 have a good 16 megapixel camera. But what exactly the term “two-lens system” is, we are still unclear until the launch.
Another expected and possible feature to see in next iPhone is wireless charging. This is already announced as part of the Apple Watch recently, so it’s highly likely to be introduced with iPhone 7.
The whole screen made of sapphire glass is also a trending rumor. A completely scratch resistant glass will be used in screen. As far as processor is concerned, there would definitely be an upgrade and we might see the all new A9 processor which is manufactured by Samsung. It is said that A9 will be smaller, offcourse faster which will use much less power.
iPhone 7 Design
Following the design trends of iPhones in recent years, the iPhone 7 or iPhone 6S will be somehow similar to the last versions, so all the upgrades will be related to hardware and other specifications. Nobody can confirm what huge jump in design updated we would see as Apple has surprised us several times in the past with major design updates.
